A ground clamp is a metal strip that is usually for electrical connection. For capable clamps, cables and connections that can stand rigours industrial use are required. The connectors provide a longer lifetime due to its mechanical strength, which is multi-stranded steel, unlike the copper braids, which quickly hardens the work due to constant movement. Taut and trailing grounding wires and connectors can become a significant hazard in the workplace.
Inspecting regularly and recording the integrity of the bonds to designate the ground points is very important. Using intrinsically portable instruments that are safe, the tests in hazardous areas of the integrity of bonds can be done. This does a simple reading that ensures the clamp is making positive and effective contact with the plant, and the bonding cable is well attached to the ground points. One can assume that using simple claps will do away with the risk that comes with static electricity. However, a sound approach in approach to risk management is highly required.
