  • Page 8: Generator Safety

    GENERATOR SAFETY IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION Honda generators are designed for use with electrical equipment that has suitable power requirements. Other uses can result in injury to the operator or damage to the generator and other property. Most injuries or property damage can be prevented if you follow all of the instructions in this manual and on the generator.
  • Page 9: Electric Shock Hazards

    GENERATOR SAFETY Electric Shock Hazards • The generator produces enough electric power to cause a serious shock or electrocution if misused. • Using a generator or electrical appliance in wet conditions, such as rain or snow, or near a pool or sprinkler system, or when your hands are wet, could result in electrocution.
  • Page 10: Refuel With Care

    GENERATOR SAFETY Refuel With Care Gasoline is extremely flammable, and gasoline vapor can explode. Do not refuel during operation. Allow the engine to cool if it has been in operation. Refuel only outdoors in a well-ventilated area and on a level surface. Never smoke near gasoline, and keep other flames and sparks away.
  • Page 11: Safety Label Locations

    GENERATOR SAFETY SAFETY LABEL LOCATIONS These labels warn you of potential hazards that can cause serious injury. Read them carefully. If a label comes off or becomes hard to read, contact your Honda servicing dealer for a replacement.
