In this lesson, you will learn more about how static electricity is formed and why you must be aware of static electricity risks when handling flammable fluids.
This lesson will explain the stages leading to a potentially hazardous electrostatic discharge.
Conductivity differs between different materials. To know how to handle your equipment onboard, you will learn more about the classification of materials in this lesson.
In this lesson, you will learn more about static accumulators and the importance of interting when handling flammable fluids.
In this lesson, you will learn more about what are the hazards caused by static electricity.
What can you do to minimize the risks of static electricity? In this lesson, you will learn more about precautions to prevent incidents that electrostatic discharges may cause.
Step 3 of 4•4 minutes video
You are now going to see a video clip where sources of static electricity onboard are being presented. Some of these have been presented in previous steps, such as fixed cleaning equipment in the tanks, water mist, and so on. However, there are more sources of static electricity onboard than mentioned earlier in this course.
