Static Earthing Kit

The Static Earthing Kit is designed for use in EOD operations where grounding is required to ensure those personnel firing cables and ordnance involved in an EOD operation, are at the same electrical potential (voltage).

Grounding reduces the risk of death or injury to personnel from electrostatic discharge through the body to a piece of ordnance thus minimising the possibility of initiation of explosives or the ignition of flammable liquids and vapours.

The need for static earthing must be considered whenever there is a danger of a build up of static electrical charge on ordnance or Operator and grounding to other objects, which may contain either electro explosive devices (EED’s), sensitive explosives or flammable liquids or vapours.
