Grounding the work area

To prevent static damage in the work area:
Cover the work surface with approved static-dissipative material. Use a wrist strap connected to
the work surface, and properly grounded tools and equipment.
Use static-dissipative mats, foot straps, or air ionizers to give added protection.
Handle electrostatic-sensitive components, parts, and assemblies by the case or PCB laminate.
Handle them only in static-free work areas.
Disconnect power and input signals before inserting and removing connectors or test equipment.
Use fixtures made of static-safe materials when fixtures must directly contact dissipative surfaces.
Keep work area free of nonconductive materials, such as plastic assembly aids and Styrofoam.
Use field service tools (such as cutters, screwdrivers, and vacuums) that are conductive.
