SAFETY GUIDELINES - DEFINITIONS
This manual contains information that is important for you to know and understand. This information relates to protecting YOUR SAFETY and PREVENTING EQUIPMENT PROBLEMS. To help you recognize this information, we use the symbols below. Please read the manual and pay attention to these symbols.
DANGER: Indicates an imminently hazardous situation which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury.
WARNING: Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury.
CAUTION: Indicates a potentially hazardous situation which, if not avoided, may result in minor or moderate injury. NOTICE: Indicates a practice not related to personal injury which, if not avoided, may result in property damage.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
DANGER: Carbon Monoxide. Using an engine indoors can kill you in minutes. Engine exhaust contains high levels of carbon monoxide (CO), a poisonous gas you cannot see or smell. You may be breathing CO even if you do not smell engine exhaust. · NEVER use an engine inside homes, garages, crawlspaces or other partly
enclosed areas. Deadly levels of carbon monoxide can build up in these areas. Using a fan or opening windows and doors does NOT supply enough fresh air. · ONLY use outdoors and far away from open windows, doors and vents. These openings can pull in engine exhaust. · Even when the engine is used correctly, CO may leak into your home. ALWAYS use a battery-powered or battery backup CO alarm in your house. Read and follow all directions for CO alarm before using. If you feel sick, dizzy or weak at anytime, move to fresh air immediately. See a doctor. You could have carbon monoxide poisoning. WARNING: Do not operate this unit until you read this instruction manual and the engine instruction manual for safety, operation and maintenance instructions. If you have any questions regarding the product, please contact our customer service department at www.simpsoncleaning.com. DANGER: Risk of injection or severe injury. Keep clear of nozzle. Do not direct discharge stream at persons or live animals. This product is to be used only by trained operators. WARNING: This product and its exhaust contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. In addition, some cleaning products and dust contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
