Working in collaboration with the
Consumer Products Safety Commission, the PGMA have made many important strides to assure portable generators are used properly and that consumers are well informed about the dangers. The Take It Outside™ campaign targets the most dangerous use of portable generators - in a home, in a basement, in a garage or even too close to windows and doors.
PGMA members also agree that operating portable generators in wet conditions can pose a risk of shock and electrocution.
PGMA is currently reviewing safety enhancements which can reduce the amount of CO emitted by portable generators in the future.
Consumers mistakenly run their generator in a protected space (like a garage) to avoid the electrocution and damage hazards inherent in running a portable generator outside in wet weather. Many consumers don't realize the extreme danger they put themselves and their family in as a result.
GenTent, the generator tent market innovator, stands ready to enable consumers to Take It Outside™, even when the weather does not cooperate!
