Guarantee the energy is off at the breaker prior to starting and use a voltage tester to verify that cables and/or electrical cable connections are completely dead before you start working on them.

Before starting, ensure you have a plan in place as to what outlets, changes and fixtures will be involved in your project. Make sure you have the ability to the appropriate tools, including but not limited to: needlenose pliers, wire cutters, cable & wire stripper, fish & colored tape, voltage tester, continuity specialist, electric & rightangle drill.
