A lip around the edge wouldn't be a bad idea at all.

Upgrades?  ESD mat, or a metal cookie sheet on which one can rest the hands for automatic grounding without a wrist strap.  The raised edges also keep small parts from straying onto the floor.

I would add an antistatic pad to the worksurface and a strap back to ground.

I would add a 3M 6811 SKU 80001389834 ESD Static Dissipative Mat to line the whole work surface, its respective Common Ground Cord 3M LPCGC150M SKU 80000955221 (don't forget to ground it!), a 3M Metal Wrist Band, Adjustable, with 6 ft. Cord AMWS61M SKU 80001122755, and a Staples Item: 562401    Model: DH240MB Copyholder/Monitor Mount Clip to hold schematics or assembly instructions.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
