Grounding a drum

Grounding a drum | 18 April, 2002

Currently in our facility we store used and discarded flux residues from the wave solder machines in 50 gallon drums. These drums are picked up and disposed of by an outside contractor. During a recent audit we were cited for not having the drums properly grounded. Grounding a metal drum is something that I have never seem done before. Can anyone give me some insight or possibly point me in the direction of a standard for grounding these metal drums?
