Manufacturing and handling the unpowered boards, the assembly workers often use strict ESD control: dissipative mats, smocks, and grounded wrist bands.
As an embedded engineer, I am always powering and probing up my raw boards (without the plastics enclosures) at my cubicle... JTAG debugging them without any sort of ESD safety.
What is the recommended guidance on this? Should I be worried about ESD? Do I need to be wearing any ESD gloves/strap?
note: the humidity in my office is around 40-50%
