June Tips of the Month: Generators

Although generators are useful, each year, people die in incidents related to them. The primary hazards to avoid when using a generator are carbon monoxide poisoning, electrocution, and fire.

Following are some safety tips when using a generator.

  • Never plug the generator into a wall outlet.

  • Always use generators outdoors, away from doors, windows and vents.

  • Never use generators in homes, garages, crawl spaces or other partially enclosed or enclosed areas even with ventilation.

  • Follow the manufacturers instructions.

  • Install carbon monoxide monitors in your home (check the battery and alarm frequently).

  • Keep the generator dry. Operate on a dry surface under an open canopy type structure.

  • Dry hands before touching generator.

  • Plug appliances directly into generator or use a heavy duty outdoor rated extension cord.

  • Before refueling the generator, turn it off and let it cool. Fuel spilled on hot engine parts could ignite.

  • Don't overload the generator.
