Question about bus bar in panel

760 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  pghmyn
I hooked up a new 240v outlet, and with precaution I turned off the main breaker before touching anything. But seeing all the exposed ground wires going into the bar (and neutrals), it got me wondering, is it safe to touch the bus bar even if the main breaker was on?

The ground bar can be touched.
In my panel, the grounds and neutral wires are all in the same bar, on the left and right sides.
