Smart assery aside, a metal guard is your best bet, as splatz suggested. A piece of angle iron would also work. Those are unfused service conductors? Yikes. Chat with your inspector.
At what point does that guard need bonding, as its technically now an enclosure/raceway of current carrying conductors?
