strap.Keep the carpets dust-free.Wear shoes with rubber soles to get rid of static charge.Do not wear clothes made of synthetic material because it is a conductor ofcharge.Do not wear jewelry because metals are conductors of electricity.Maintain the relative humidity at around 50 percent.Situations that could Present a Danger or Hazard If you do not use ESD protection devices as per the guidelines, you can harmyourself by getting a shock. Consider the following situations:An ESD strap is specially designed to drain electric charges away and providesafety to you. For this purpose, it uses 1-megaohm resistor to drain the chargeaway. If, instead of using this safety device, you wrap a simple wire around yourwrist, you can get electrocuted.An ESD strap can provide safety against low voltage. If you wear an antistaticwrist strap when there is a possibility to encounter a high-voltage capacitor, thestrap could channel that voltage through your body. Such situation could beworking on the inside of a monitor or power supply.Antistatic bags are not designed to drain the charges away. Do not use them inplace of antistatic mats to transfer static charge from the computer to the groundPC Components posing potential hazard and safety procedures related to them are asfollows: If you do not use ESD protection devices as per the guidelines, you can harmyourself by getting a shock. Consider the following situations:Lasers and high-voltage equipment: Lasers are high-intensity light rays that cancause severe damage to human eyes, including blindness. Therefore, never lookdirectly into a laser beam of the laser printer. If the radiation of the laserbeam comes in direct contact with skin, it can cause severe burns or even death,depending on the intensity. So, avoid direct contact with laser beams. The laserbeams used in printers and CD-ROM drives are of significantly low intensity but aslaser printers generate excessive heat, be careful when handling the inside of theprinter. To avoid the damage to parts of a laser printer, such as the EPcartridge, do not touch them. Do not put any object into the feeding system whenthe printer is running.Lasers and high-voltage equipment: High-voltage equipment is extremely hazardous.Carelessness while working with them can lead to shock, severe burns, orelectrocution. The potential damage due to mishandling of the equipment is writtenon the warning or caution label that is stick to the equipment.As a safety measure, read the documentation provided by the manufacturer beforeyou start working with high-voltage equipment. Ensure that you are properlygrounded to get rid of static charge and to prevent the equipment from any damage.Power supply: The power outlet provides alternating current (AC) and the PowerSupply Unit (PSU) converts it into direct current (DC) to be used by yourcomputer. During conversion, a significant amount of heat is generated, which cancause burns if you come in direct contact with it. If you try to open the PSU,which contains capacitors that store electric charge, there is a risk of shock orelectrocution.
