False precision

499 people can fit comfortably in the space, but 500 is dangerous and unlawful?

How exactly would it work in practice to prosecute the building owner for a violation?

Would you have an inspector running around counting people?  Does that inspector count?  If so, then you really can have only 498 people.

How would the inspector keep track of the people coming and going while the count is in progress?

Does it matter how fit the people are?  You could probably clear out 600 Olympic athletes from the space in less time than 499 people of average fitness.
