It is supposed to be in a battery box with the battery, so that isn't an issue. If you're dropping or storing tools in your battery box, you have other issues to deal with first.

You can also add battery terminal covers to your battery posts, like these:

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
