If you have a rack, you can set the pins at a height that allows you to perform squats or bench, but also allows you to "drop" the weight an inch and get out of the attempt without killing yourself. Practice before doing this though.

This is the method I use at home. If I miss a bench rep, I can lower the bar and set it on the pins and wiggle out.
