Caution ,danger message

A cordial greeting to the whole community; I would like to ask if there is a standard formula to alert the who is reading to pay attention to the dangers of electric current while you perform a job and at the same time to arise from any liability from damage caused by an incorrect or incomplete understanding of instructions step by step.
thank  for help

IANAL, but anyway, I'd think something along the lines

'Electricity is potentially dangerous. Do nothing with it you don't completely understand or have the slightest doubt about. Whatever you do, the outcome is your personal problem and you can't blame this instructable or its author.'

should do. In the US of law suits, you may want to add something like

'This is including personal injury, financial loss and any kind of damage including but not limited to the fall of civilization and total destruction of the universe as we know it.'

And you may want to add:

'Should your work qualify you to apply for the Darwin Award, you (resp. your heirs [if unfortunately there are any]) will get all the benefits from said award. And thank you for removing you from the gene pool'

This should do it.

Oh, I must not forget to add here:

Law, especially on the internet is complicated. Do not use this advise, unless you completely understand the laws all over the world and accept that any kind of arising problem is your personal one. This is including personal.....

Thank you very much for your reply; It is very useful, it would have to be put in each instructable, especially the second Council; Leaving aside that concerning Darwin; on the last note maybe I haven't grasped well well ... perhaps you mean that even the most righteous, if misused, can turn into wrong? Thanks again.

No, it means that legal advice you get from some random person on the Internet is worth exactly what you paid for it. Every country has different laws and regulations. If you are not familiar with the laws of every country, then you are not likely to be able to meet all of their requirements.

+1 (to kelseymh's "It's worth what you paid for it" remark)

Just to make it clear, the second and third parts in my first comment where kind of tongue-in-cheek.

The first one may give you some peace of mind, but may or may not help you law-wise.

I wonder if there is some catch-all-disclaimer on the instructables site. I mean, the have a lot of stuff to possibly hurt yourself with (Electrics, laser, heavy tools, chemical stuff ...)

Did you use a bad translator?
What I read is that someone is being killed on an electric chair and that you want to make sure the person executing him is safe from harm....
