1 The legend is not completed
2 The 4 to 1 rule pertains to ladder safety , 1 ft out for every 4 ft up
3 hot water taps are set up so that hot is on the left as you look at the taps from the front as you look at this set it is on the right
4 Falls, Poisonings, Fires/burns, Choking and Suffocation / Drowning
5 Microwaves are a source of electromagnetic radiation, but the sun is the largest emiter , and sun damage can cause skin burns, cateracts, cancer… Coverup and wear sunscrean.
i think Rumour Mill sang the song I Should Know Better

**Answer by Marcel Cyr - THANKS!

When questions of code interpretation arise, the best approach is to consider the original intent of the requirement. In this case, why does the code specify hot water on the left hand side? Quite simply, the purpose is to prevent the user from being accidentally scalded. So let’s apply this principle to your situation.

Hot water on the left side is the arrangement with which we are all accustomed. When we adjust water temperature, we typically do so as a matter of habit, rather than consciously considering which faucet valve is hot and which is cold.

With a bathtub rim faucet, a person standing outside the tub is unlikely to be scalded if the wrong handle is turned. The risk of scalding is more likely to affect someone inside the tub. Therefore, common sense would seem to weigh in favor of the person inside the tub.

Keep your pants on when using the microwave… … …

Microwave radiation can heat body tissue the same way it heats food. Exposure to high levels of microwaves can cause a painful burn. Two areas of the body, the eyes and the testes, are particularly vulnerable to RF heating because there is relatively little blood flow in them to carry away excess heat
