Things to consider when organising an event


You should use mains electricity supplies if possible.

If you must use a generator:

  • Diesel models are safer than petrol
  • Keep the generator guarded with a barrier
  • Store fuel away from structures and combustible materials
  • Remember they can be noisy so keep them away from neighbouring properties or provide effective sound insulation
  • All temporary electrical systems must comply with British Standards - BS 7909, BS 7430 and BS 7671
