It might be safe if you are highly experienced are a keen observer and know what to look for and the situation is right. Reading an industry or regulatory guideline or two and thinking you are qualified is a quick recipe for death. Find a qualified and experienced person or contractor, carefully evaluate all aspects of this entry and employ all manner of safety precautions. Spend enough time with the entire team developing a plan so everyone knows the dangers and risks. Beat your brain looking for concerns, issues, what-ifs, how-tos, whys / why nots etc. Certainly it can be easy and go just fine, but it can also turn bad quickly. It is vital to have thought through every possibility, real or imagined, and have plans and backup plans for everything. Then figure the unexpected happens.
