The following precautions must be taken:
Do not open the protective conductive packaging until you are at an approved anti-static work station and have read the following. Use a conductive wrist strap attached to a good earth ground.
Always discharge yourself by touching a grounded bare metal surface or approved anti-static mat before picking up an ESD-sensitive electronic component. Use an approved anti-static mat to cover your work surface. Avoid packaging the PCB into plastic bags, polystyrene or non-antistatic bubble films.
