You should evaluate whether or not you have the technical expertise required to do the project. You want to have a high degree of confidence that you can perform the work without compromising on safety. For example, the average handyman should not work on energized electrical circuits around his house when he is doing projects. It is always safe to turn off the electrical source before proceeding with any project. At that point, you are safe. With almost any electrical work you do, you are safe until you turn the circuit back on. If the electricity is off, it can't hurt anything. Also, it is never a bad idea to have some first aid training before attempting any do it yourself projects around the home. First aid class is kind of fun, and naturally, you could end up saving somebody's life.
