Pharmaceutical

The pharmaceutical industry has a long history of worker safety and fire prevention, and has made significant strides in eliminating static hazards within dangerous process environments.

Milling and grinding operations, dust collection, container filling and general movement of combustible powders and solvents are significant sources of static electricity. After mechanical spark ignitions, uncontrolled discharges of static electricity are the highest reported source of ignition in combustible dust cloud explosions.

The "Earthing & Bonding Applications - Controlling Static Electricity in Hazardous Areas" document by Newson Gale is a very good, easy to read document. It provides practical advice and has great illustrations. It contains a lot of good background information and references various regulations throughout. The fact it includes comparisons between European (Cenelec), American (NEC) and International (IEC) Hazardous Area Classification and is available in many languages makes it an excellent reference document.
