Although GFCI protection for receptacles in bathrooms is required, there are many installations where a bathtub or shower stall may be located in an area that does not meet the NEC definition of a bathroom. The result is that the receptacles in these areas are not GFCI protected. Regardless of where the bathtub or shower stall is located, damp and wet conditions combined with the use of personal grooming equipment, such as a hair dryer, contribute to the increased risk of electrical shock. GFCI protection provides an increased level of safety where these conditions exist. Section The NEC has been revised to add Section GFCI protection for receptacles in laundry areas will provide additional protection in an area where conditions may result in an increased risk of electrical shock.
