For ESD control in the factory we use foot & wrist straps, and ESD smocks. We also have ESD work surfaces including ESD flooring throughout the plant. We have been using ESD chairs and now the question has come up on if and how often these chairs need to be tested. Please chime in and let me know if your company checks chairs. How often ?

Thanks

In ESD-head parlance, chairs are "Process Required Insulators." Checking PRMs once every 3 months is a reasonable starting point. Review that period after a year.
