ESD Assessment
An ESD/EOS Assessment from Restronics Mid Atlantic will look at your complete facility. And, it’s offered ”on us.”

The majority of ESD (electrostatic discharge) assessments are straightforward; checking connections to make sure wrist straps and other static control products are working correctly. These reviews, however aren’t staying up to date with the current demands in electronics manufacturing. The EOS/ESD Assessment digs deeper than the typical survey to assist you in identifying and handling EOS and ESD issues. In conjunction with our partners, we will look at your ESD containers, ESD floors, workstations, chairs, production tools, and carts.

Our EOS/ESD Assessment also provides a sampling of select areas in your facility. Including functional test, SMT lines, soldering stations, and shipping/receiving. The Assessment Report provides numeric findings, gaps between the program and industry standards ANSI/ESD S20.20 and IPC-A-610E, references to best practices, and recommendations for improvements.

Want to learn more about ESD control in your workplace? We offer a valuable, free resource – the ESD Awareness Guide, where you’ll learn more about:

  • ESD Basics Quizzes with links to answers


A strong ESD control program is only as strong as its weakest link. Focusing on these fundamental ESD control principles is where you should start:

  • Clear identification of ESD vulnerable components and products.
  • Grounding of all conductors, including staff, in an ESD protected area.
  • Removal of non-essential insulators from ESD protected areas and neutralization of charges on essential insulators via ionization.
  • Enclosure of ESD-susceptible items in static-shielding packaging while being or stored outside an ESD protected area.
