Could you make a page about safety people should take when working with electronics?

Thanks... I couldn't find much about it on the internet.

Ahhhh, none besides don't burn yourself with a soldering iron, and don't strip the skin off your finger with the wire strippers. And also try not to swallow any wires or IC's, they may cause indigestion.
Hell, there are no rules here—we're
   trying to accomplish something.

Welll along with indigestion I accidentally swallowed a PIC that was programmed for a death bot... it was very hard convincing people I was trying to shoot them with laser eyes because of a PIC in my gut...

Don't put ur finger in a light socket. bad experience dont go there...

Really all the advice you need is to use your common sense, dont put a soldering iron next to carpet soaked in petrol or anything equally as stupid. 12 or 24V wont kill you even if you electrocute yourself, all it will do is scare the crap out of you if you're not expecting it and give you a buzz.

Really you're more likely to do damage swallowing a PIC...

PS  also don't eat solder, lead is bad for you ;)

Allways wear safety gogles when soldering... if the solder has any impurities, it can "pop" when soldering thowing a small glob of hot metal and flux right into your eyeball!

Don't use a high power motor( like a wheelchair motor) without a kill switch. If anything goes wrong it will mean an electrical fire(from short circuit), broken electronics, or broken limbs on you( if the motors are on a base)

Don't lick a battery terminal ( if thats not obvious enough)

Think twice before you do anything !
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

Maybe the reason you didn't find anything is because you googled "safty" intead of safety...  :D ::)

I'm sure you can find stuff if you look good, but anyway just like about everyone already said:
Just use your common sense, electronics isn't that dangerous, electricity is.
Always pay attention and double check.
