I know that looks scary but if you have good grounding there isn’t much of a hazard. There are really no exposed, energized parts in a baseboard heater. It isn’t the same as the “toaster wire” space heaters. Some are oil filled so there are not even any real <thermally> hot parts.

I don’t like to see towel racks direct above baseboard heaters. People do this to have a nice warm towel when getting out of the shower and to help dry out the towel afterward. There are special units designed for this purpose. Baseboard heaters are not. Towels often slip off the bar and onto the heater. Fire potential
