I do that as a safety precaution when working on any voltage. After disconnecting it is best to wait several minutes beforing diving in to work.
Some electrical components are designed to hold energy and can really bite hard if you don't know.

Also, rule of thumb: take off all jewelery. This is SOP when working with any voltage and should be common practice for all work. Wedding bands are typically gold and great conductors.

Don't want to scare anyone, but always smart to follow this rule with any electrical work, whether the car, house, etc....

This also avoids shorting any low voltage stuff you may not notice.
