    I got you to smile didn't I? Your keyboard or whatever gave us a smile.

    I am not trying to argue how good or bad this code is. I try to comply to all codes from an unbiased view and assume that there are legitimate reasons for code changes. I do have a question however, and its just for my curiosity.

    Why was it decided that provisions needed to be taken to mitigate trip hazards (what triggered this need) and why were certain rooms chosen to require trip hazard mitigation over others?

    Again, serious question. I am neutral regarding this code requirement.

    Safety is pretty obviously a worthy goal. The abitrary nature of which room types apply is a problem. There is also the problem caused by the real results...supposedly flush floor receptacles are rarely so, especially when floor finished are installed and especially when eventually replaced. Add to this the fact that people tend to not use floor receptacles due to inconvenient or nonfunctional covers, the fact that people in office attire will avoid kneeling on office floors, and the previously mentioned drastic improvement in battery technology that makes charging/powering in meetings unnecessary. It's a bit like mandating safer buggy whips.

    Imagine how well safety codes/regulations like we see today would have been accepted back in 1850
