Based solely on what you said, no. Because that kind of question comes from a place of not fully appreciating all the risks and hazards inside that box. So for you, I'm going to say no, it is not okay.
I wouldn't hesitate to work inside my power distribution panels, and have done so many times, but I don't have to ask whether it would be okay. Lockout, tagout, and proceed appropriately. I strongly recommend you drop back and call a pro. Yes, it's expensive - but reconstructive surgery costs even more.
