    Fire extinguisher near >50 gallon diesel generator

    Does anyone know the exact code for the requirement?

    For (outdoor) diesel tank, code is there for placement of fire extinguisher. For diesel generator, it is simply stated to keep near fire extinguisher in one installation manual.

      OSHA, 29 CFR 1910.157 "1910.157(d)(4) "The employer shall distribute portable fire extinguishers for use by employees on Class B fires so that the travel distance from the Class B hazard area to any extinguisher is 50 feet (15.2 m) or less."

      A 10-lb. dry chemical extinguisher rated 2A:10B:C ought to be sufficient.
