As Holst points out, they're all operating at low voltages. Voltage is what determines how far an arc will go, and in the case of the MOSFETs, it's less than a 1/100 of a millimetre. Given that it would be very difficult to acheive that spacing by hand, don't worry unless you have heatsinks in contact with metal!
