Abstract Considerations on the principles of the build-up of electrostatic charges in the human body, its conductivity, the time required for building up a charge and on the electric fiels around a charged body. A simple electric circuit is used as a model to facilitate calculations. Correlations between the charge retaining time and the humidity of the air and between the charge density of the human body and earth are given. Recommendations for the electric resistance of shoes (at less 4.400Ω, the optimum being between 104 and 108Ω), ionising and wetting the air and earthing the human body are also given.
