I'm too shy/awkward to ask for a spotter, plus I prefer working out when the gym is absolutely empty. My method for self preservation is to leave the clamps off of the ends so I can dump the weights if needed. I wouldn't do this if the gym was packed and I risked hurting other people, but this has legit saved my life multiple times (because there was no one around to help)
