Discharge any accumulated charge on your body, by touching an earthed object, first before opening the protective container with ESDS devices inside.

ESDS devices should be contained in a static protective bag or container at all times during storage or transportation.

The two signs in the photo identify the item inside the bag as an electrostatic sensitive device.
