Exposed copper wire

Is the exposed wire safe. Instructions say to screw it yo the wall and attach light but doesnít say anything about the copper wire. Itís touching the wires inside and before I turn this on do I need to cover it cut it? Idk

The bare wire is the ground wire. It is OK for it to touch other pieces of metal and insulated wires.

What you don't want is any exposed copper on your black or white wire connections that could touch something.
