Orange skirting board – to do wiring where?

wp-image-1613823870jpg.jpgThe grey wire middle right slips between the warped oak joist and the floorboards to power a ceiling light light downstairs. But what if someone nails? And shall I put ringmain wire behind the skirting ? Maybe steel protectors ?

I’m also asking for advice at UKDIY and Facebook
