    With respect, trying to interpret your question.

    If you are asking "should the shower be earthed?" or "should the earth wire be connected in the switch?"
    then the answer is absolutely YES!!!

    The earth conductor must be connected to the earth in the switch box. To connect with the earth from the supply side.

    If it is a plastic back box then earths only need to go to front plate (switch). But get an electrician in because loss of earth or bad connections you could be looking at a shock or fire situation.

    We know what it is. The shower must be earthed. If you do not understand then

    Are you saying that you have connected the incoming and outgoing earths to the shower switch terminals but there is also an earth terminal in the back / mounting box and that is what you are asking about?
    Your profile shows you have a business name. If this is an electrical business I would refer this query to your cps provider.

    An earth must be provided at every accessory and point of utilisation, so if the earth runs from the supply direct to the shower, bypassing the switch, then you need to run a new earth either back from the shower to the switch or forward from the supply to the switch.
