Discuss Portable Generator (Health & Safety Query) in the Electrical Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

Hi all,

Firstly, apologies if this thread is in the incorrect area of the forums.

I'm currently undertaking a degree in Health & Safety - I'm about to begin an assignment in which a portable generator was housed in a confined space, which, ultimately led to the death of an individual through carbon monoxide poisoning.

Would anybody be able to help in answering some questions;

Do portable generators have to be PA Tested?

Do portable generators have to be installed by a qualified tradesman (i.e. similar to gas engineers etc)?

I understand that generators come under the PUWER.

Any advice appreciated - thanks,

Griz.
