How to's plant audit & measurement

This program reviews the evaluation and periodic verification (audit) measurement procedures for the technical requirements specified in the ANSI/ESD S20.20 ESD program development standard. Detailed explanation of instruments, fixtures, and accessories function and usage are provided. Then, the details of “How to” measure are explained and demonstrated. Measurements include those listed in Table 1: Grounding/Equipotential Bonding Requirements; Table 2: Personnel Grounding Requirements; and Table 3: EPA/ESD Control Items. These recommended measurement procedures confirm the proper operation and use of ESD control products and materials selected as part of a facility’s S20.20 ESD control program.

Some sample topics covered in this course are:

  • ANSI/ESD S20.20 Technical Control Requirements
  • Program Manager’s Approach to Instrumentation and Applications
  • Testing Ground Circuits and Assessing Connections
  • Essential Resistance Measurement Procedures and Concerns
  • Electrostatic Field and Voltage Measurements
  • Personnel Grounding Considerations vs. ESD Control Points
  • Product Installation Baseline Measurements
  • Evaluation, Acceptance, and Audit Procedures for: Ground Systems, Floors, Worksurfaces, Equipment, Personnel Grounding, Garments, Materials, Production Aids, Packaging, and Ionization Devices
  • Electrostatic Analysis Measurements including Worksurface Suppression, Footwear/Flooring, and Ionization Decay
