The pharmaceutical industry has a long history of worker safety and fire prevention, and has made significant strides in static control solutions which eliminate static hazards within dangerous process environments.

Milling and grinding operations, dust collection, container filling and general movement of combustible powders and solvents are significant sources of static electricity. After mechanical spark ignitions, uncontrolled discharges of static electricity are the highest reported source of ignition in combustible dust cloud explosions.
