What governs whether we stand or kneel when receiving holy Communion?

The biggest factor should be safety. While distributing Communion, I have seen a person who kneels abruptly almost trip the unsuspecting next person in line. Kneeling is not necessarily more reverent than standing. Safety should be our default in such situations.
