Default Toggle Type Light Switches

I ran into this yesterday. This is a downtown high rise condo. Is anyone aware of any safety issues with toggle style light switches, other than they being an older style light switch?

All advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Jonathan

Jonathan,

Were there any issues such as heat? Other than that there is not much to comment on. All we can see is the face of the switch and the plate.
