It is recommended to install the GFCI in areas close to water and equipment. Tap water or wet objects can conduct electricity very easily and can connect your body to ground potential, increasing the likelihood of receiving ground faults. Appliances with built-in GFCI protection, such as those currently required for hair dryers, may not require additional GFCI protection, but many appliances are not equipped with GFCI protection.
