Safety

From its founding, OPEI has made consumer safety and product education a vitally important aspect of its charter. OPEI works closely with the CPSC and Health Canada on issues related to consumer protection and enforcement of the Consumer Product Safety Act.

The outdoor power equipment industry, working through OPEI and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and ISO, has developed numerous voluntary standards, used by virtually all manufacturers, to address safety concerns associated with the use of equipment.

In addition to establishing a number of ANSI safety standards for outdoor power equipment, OPEI collects, maintains, and distributes written, audio and video materials for consumers properly handle and maintain their outdoor power equipment.

Owners and operators of outdoor power equipment are encouraged to read and understand their owner’s manual and visit manufacturer Web sites for specific product recommendations.

We also invite you to review our safety tips by product, information on how you can be prepared before a severe weather event or other emergencies, and access to a library of safety materials.
