Surely thats an electric shock risk, should someone find their fingers probing around the PSU while its turned on ?

You could just do with leaving the supply plugged in but with the mains switch on the machine or wall off. Avoids breaking things with juice flowing through them but maintains a ground connection (the off switch will only cut one pole, not the earth).
