Just a thought...

Have you measured red to black? If the answer is 240, the situation may be a bit different than you think.

OP said that they're both on the same breaker, so they should be safe. But your point is well taken.

If they are 240v black to red, that's just fine as those wires will be on seperate receptacles. Using a two pole breaker and a shared neutral is a normal way of supplying two circuits (when and where and how depends on your local code).

I understand these words just not in the order they're used.

The red is switched and the black isn't. It's a light and utility circuit.
