General safety suggestions:
It is advisable to always have the following items nearby and in a good condition
Router Table Safety
Although most router bits are small, they can be potentially dangerous and should deserve your attention and respect.
Use push sticks or a push block to position your hands a safe distance from the router bit.
Use large-diameter bits only in a router table. Using bits over 25mm Ø (diameter) in a handheld router can possibly cause you to lose control of the tool and harm yourself or bystanders.
Always wear a dust mask as well as eye and hearing protection.
Take light cuts. Heavy cuts invite kickback. If necessary, move the fence closer to the bit or switch to a larger guide bearing/bush.
Use a featherboard (anti-kickback device) to support the workpiece against the router table and/or fence.
Never climb-cut. Always feed the stock from right to left. Against the rotation of the router bit. (see illustration)
Avoid routing small stock. Instead, rout a larger piece and cut it to size afterwards. If you absolutely have to profile a small piece, build an suitable jig or secure the workpiece.
Always use a guard. If the fence didn’t come with a guard, make your own.
Never start the router with the bit in contact with the material.
Don’t force the router bit or overload the router. Excessive heat is an enemy.
Secure/fasten the router in the base before starting/switch on the router.
Don’t bottom out the bit in the collet or partially insert the bit. Instead, completely insert the bit, and then back off approximately 2 mm. At least 2/3 's of the router bit shank should be inside the collet.
Be sober and not under the influence of medicine that causes a lack of concentration
Tidy up your workshop to ensure the ability to move freely with enough room around the router table
