Safety Rules

The manufacturer cannot anticipate every possible cir-
cumstance that might involve a hazard. The warnings in
this manual, and on tags and decals affixed to the unit
are, therefore, not all inclusive. If using a procedure, work
method or operating technique that the manufacturer
does not specifically recommend, verify that it is safe for
others. Also make sure the procedure, work method or
operating technique utilized does not render the equip-
ment unsafe.
Throughout this publication, and on tags and decals
affixed to the generator, DANGER, WARNING, CAUTION
and NOTE blocks are used to alert personnel to special
instructions about a particular operation that may be
hazardous if performed incorrectly or carelessly. Observe
them carefully. Their definitions are as follows:
DANGER: Indicates a hazardous situation which,
if not avoided, will result in death or serious
injury.
WARNING: Indicates a hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, could result in death or
serious injury.
CAUTION: Indicates a hazardous situation
which, if not avoided, could result in minor or
moderate injury.
NOTE: Notes contain additional information important to a

These safety warnings cannot eliminate the hazards that
