Being that plastic is a non conductive substance, you are not grounding the pipe. The wire that you would “so call ground” the pipe is only there to give a pathway for the build up of static electricity to discharge. Although it is a nasty jolt, in a small shop I don’t believe there’s a record of anyone having an explosion from dust.
