||The phenomenon of static electricity and its generation are reviewed. The hazards of static electricity are considered especially in relation to the handling of flammable liquids, gases, dusts or explosive substances. Fire and explosion hazards can be reduced by avoiding ignitable materials and mixtures, using materials which do not accumulate charge, or by dissipating or limiting the charge. Where these measures are not possible, measures must be taken to make the charge harmless by earthing, using antistatic substances, increasing the relative humidity of the air or using ionisation.
