Static Electricity Discharge and Fire Prevention

When flammable or combustible atmospheres are present, uncontrolled discharges of static electricity are potentially dangerous or even catastrophic.

An unexpected safety lesson

About thirty years ago, my golf foursome learned an important safety lesson and we credited the Dalai Lama. We were all big fans of the movie “Caddyshack.” In that movie, Bill Murray’s character talks about caddying in the Himalayans for the Dalai Lama and states, “So I’m on the first tee with him.
