Carbon Monoxide poisoning and deaths occurs due to portable generator exhaust gas emissions where:
- Portable generators are used in or close to indoor occupied spaces
- Portable generators have a design defect
- Flawed instructions, compliance and training have been provided
- A carbon monoxide interlock system is not present
Technology advancements in carbon monoxide sensor technology could be used to totally prevent carbon mon
oxide poisoning by triggering interlock and shut-off circuitry in most situations. Most often than not, this could be achieved using economically and practically implemented solutions.
