Event Planning: Generators

If there is no power supply on site and you need electricity for your event, you will need to hire a generator.  It is safer to supply one or two large generators for the whole site that can be easily controlled and often don’t need refuelling for day events. These are modern, diesel and silent running.

Allowing smaller petrol generators on site increase the risk as it is harder to control their condition, the storage of fuel, where they are placed, how they are refuelled etc.  Generators must be hired from a reputable company and if any spillages happen they must be cleaned up immediately.  Generators should be fenced and have a CO2 fire extinguisher kept within the fencing.
