The correct answer to this question is A. ESD stands for Electrostatic Discharge, which is the sudden flow of electricity caused by contact, electrical shorts, or dielectric breakdowns between two electrically charged objects. One common cause of ESD is static electricity. ESD is visible in things like sparks and lightning.

In an ESD control workstation, only job essential static-generating material is allowed to be present. ESD control workstations exist to better study and understand ESD, but those environments can be dangerous. That is why awareness training is vital, for each lab and for the industry as a whole.
