Garbage Disposal Switches

I have been advised that some jurisdictions are requiring the use of toggle switches that are market with "On" and "Off" rather than decorator style switches for turning under sink mounted garbage disposal units.

The reason is one of safety as it can be difficult to visually determine if a decorator switch is in the "On" or "Off" position.

While this may be a decorator problem, the concern, and hence the requirement, in my opinion is valid.
