Proper Station Grounding is important and this ARRL book sets out to explain how to do it safely. This book is specifically aimed at US radio amateurs and provides an intriguing insight into a different electrical system even if it absolutely shouldn't be used as a guide to UK regulations and methods.
ARRL Grounding and Bonding for the Radio Amateur provides information on AC safety in the US and their National Electrical Code but there is much more. Many parts are useful regardless of supply differences and you will find fascinating information on for example lightning protection. The chapter on 'RF Management' is describes preventing unwanted RF currents and voltages from disrupting the normal functions of equipment whilst the 'Good Practice Guidelines' chapter contains a wealth of information that is applicable both here and internationally.
If you are interested in different electrical standards and how they affect station management across the globe ARRL Grounding and Bonding for the Radio Amateur provides a hugely interesting read.
Caution: This book is not intended as a guide to setting up a station in the UK or Europe and some solutions are not compliant with UK/European electrical regulations and thereby may be illegal or deemed dangerous in these areas.
