Their is a switch height requirement as it pertains to HEIGHT…
Article 404.8 ( I will ONLY quote the MEAT of the requirement )
" They ( being switches either all switches or circuit breakers ) SHALL BE installed so that the center of the grip of the operating handle of the switch or circuit breaker, when in its highest position, is not more than 6’ 7" above the floor or working platform."
The safety aspect of this is many use snap switches as disconnects for items and if it can’t be reached it can’t function safely. Their are some exceptions to this for motors and some applicances…but in general no switch over 6’7" is allowed.
However, as a issue a HI would write up…I would not be overly concerned on this unless it was a standard light switch up over 7-8 feet…which is just wrong as well…as always the CODE is simply to explain the methodology and NOT something you QUOTE…
But I figured you would like to know the regulations on that fact.
