As the human body can contain electrostatic energy when insulated from the ground, professional footwear is regularly involved in the security of the processes where it is essential to prevent electrostatic charges from building up (Handling ESD sensitive components in the automotive and electronic sector, particularly). Electrostatic dissipative footwear is especially designed to provide a ground connection for personnel, through their feet, which is necessary when standing on an electrostatic control surface.
