So, when we find the outlets in a garage are not GFCI-protected, we write it up as a safety issue.
But I’ve always wondered, what is the safety issue that is inherent in the garage?*
Requiring GFCIs in proximity to sinks, tubs, etc. is obvious due to the increased shock hazard of water.
It hasn’t happened yet, but one day a client is going to ask me *, and I really don’t know why.
