Can I use paint sprayers safely indoors and outdoors?

Absolutely, the key is preparation. Make sure you cover anything you don’t want to accidentally paint, using masking tapes, dust sheets and plastic covers. When spraying outdoors ensure it isn’t too windy and use smooth, controlled motion to ensure you aren’t spraying anywhere you shouldn’t.
