Static electricity is produced when the positive and negative charges of an atom are out of balance. Some objects such as wool, glass, human skin and hair are more likely to accumulate electric charges and have static electricity. Usually this electrical current y dicharging is small(smaller than 1mA). It is low in potential harmful Energy but it is high in Voltage, usually some kilovolts. The effects of static electricity normally are considered to be more annoying than being dangerous but for sure it can be harmfull to people. More detailed information about the dangers of static electricity and electricity in general on the body can be found here. Static electricity can be discharged by means of a anti static bar or ionizer, please have a look at our solutions for static electricity pages to find your solution.
