It's a standard Navy rule that whenever possible one should stand on a rubber mat when working with electronic equipment. Although most ham shacks don't present the same danger as a steel deck, it is still a good idea to use some sort of an insulated mat when the shack is located in a cellar or other location that is sometimes wet or damp. An old discarded bathtub mat can be used for this purpose.
