i have a bet with my boss.... he says that a light above a tub needs to be gfi protected and i cant find a code that says it has to be . now i would like to say that i think its a good idea that it is gfi protected but if someone could clear this up with a code refrence that would be great ....also do you guys normally do it anyway or not thanks
Yeah, but it is our job to idiot-proof the place isn't it?
That's the only problem with having all these codes and regulations. Although that would be a weak argument, one I'd never try to make. Maybe I should say it is an unfortunate result. People get so used to indusrties engineering every bit of danger out of things they stop thinking for themselves.
I remember being on a job a long time ago asking the guy I was with "how do you know that can be done that way" (All I remember is he making assumptions that if wrong would be dangerous) Instead of giving me an answer like "the instructions say...." or "Well you see, this is how this works.....", his reponse was "they wouldn't make it that way."
