Safety Tips When Using Rental Generators

Joseph Coupal - Sunday, June 09, 2019
American Power Rental - rent generators in New York, NY

American Power Rental carries a full line of portable generators from 20KW to 2000KW. Our inventory includes motion picture grade low-noise Crawfords. Although each and every generator within our inventory is specifically designed to federal safety standards, there are some safety tips that we want our customers to keep in mind while using our rental generator units.

  • Generators produce carbon monoxide. Avoid running it indoors or an enclosed area. Station it outside your facility when it is operating.
  • Although these units must run and supply power for your facility during harsh weather conditions, make sure that they are not directly exposed to rain or snow. Cover them with canopies or place them on areas where water cannot reach them.
  • Under any circumstance, do not touch a generator with wet hands.
  • Use extension cords that are grounded and rated for the voltage of the generator unit.
  • Cool first the engine when refueling.
  • Never store spare fuel close to the generator.
  • Avoid running the generator near combustible or flammable materials.
  • Do not station generator near open windows or doors. Carbon monoxide produce by the engine may enter your facility and pose hazard to those inside.
  • Ensure carbon monoxide detectors are accurately working before turning on the generator.
  • Station generator away from the work area as possible. This will help minimize fire, carbon monoxide, and shock hazards.

American Power Rental - Rental Cables New York, NY

Generator cables are the core support accessory for portable power generation which need more careful consideration than they often get. No matter how reliable a generator set is, the wrong cables present a danger to both workers and equipment. When you rent a portable generator, make sure to include rental cables for multiple reasons. Of course you must ensure that the cables are compatible with the generator unit itself, but you also need to ensure that you don’t overload personally owned cables that might only appear to be sufficient for the load.

Rental cables in New York, NY are available in different sizes and amp capacities. They come in sets and in single cord with cam-type connectors. When you need to provide power to several areas in your building, you'll need multiple cables. Our rental cables are guaranteed durable, flexible and safe to use. They are made in industrial grade to cater commercial and heavy duty generator applications.

In order to determine what generator cables to use for your application, contact American Power Rental. We can assist you in choosing the generator set and cables that are appropriate for your specific requirement. But our rental cables can also be rented alone if that is what you need.

You don’t miss backup power generation until it’s required for scheduled outages or more often for non-panned emergencies.
