ESD protection in high voltage areas
Hi, We are currently setting up an ESD protected area within a cell that manufactures high voltage products. The floor has been isolated from the grounded circuit. To protect the PCBA's from ESD can the operators/Test technicians wear ESD wrist straps with a 1 Meg inline resistor to protect the components when handling the populated printed circuit board. Is there a risk that the operators might get electrocuted if wear the wrist strap to ground if a high voltage event occurs.
Thank you for the input.
