Well as for a safer method the whole problem with the current method is thay both particles are being accelerated before colliding them head on this
will mean at least some of the particles will lose escape velocity and end up bouncing around Earth forever.
I think the quickest easiest fix is only to accelerate one before introducing the other that should guarantee after a collision both will still have a
high and safe speed.
Another possible way is don't collide them head on as long as there is a slight deflection again we should be fine even if something like a micro
black hole or other heavy particle was created and stable it wouldn't remain on earth very long.
I still believe the safest way is observing them in the atmosphere as created by nature though the tricky part would be how but I think it's feasible
if a bit hit and miss.
I think everyone would really like to see some attempted verification of Hawking Radiation before full collisions and if I'm not mistaken there are
some attempts at this but none have yielded any success as yet.
Of course the risk does appear to be small but we don't know how right or wrong we are with current theories or what unknowns might be created.
