The edges of your ESD Protected Areas (EPAs) should be well marked, particularly in high traffic areas such as entrances and exits where employees travel back and forth between protected and unprotected areas. Labeling these boundaries helps prevent the improper transportation of ESD-sensitive electronics out of the protected area. Clearly marked boundaries also caution employees, in addition to plant visitors, to take proper precautions, such as wearing ESD-approved footwear, before entering an EPA.

An excerpt from ESD prevention document ANSI/ESD S20.20:
Transportation of ESDS items outside an ESD Protected Area (hereafter referred to as "EPA")requires enclosure in static protective materials, although the type of material depends on the situation and destination. Inside an EPA, low charging and static dissipative materials may provide adequate protection. Outside an EPA, low charging and static discharge shielding materials are recommended. While these materials are not discussed in the document, it is important to recognize the differences in their application. For more clarification see ANSI/ESD S541.
