Whether the fence is on the
left or right of the blade, stand

Never put your body directly in line with the blade when making rip cuts at the tablesaw: If the board kicks back, it's coming straight at you. Also, never place your pushing hand in direct line with the cutting motion, regardless of the tool.

Staying mentally sharp is my favorite and very important. Working when tired can cause carelessness. Also don't work when upset. I did once...once. My mother was ill, and called me while I was in the shop. After I hung up I went back to the table saw, and was thinking so much about what was going on with her, that I nearly separated two finger tips from my hand. I had to take a trip to ER, and everything turned out fine, but the lesson was painfully learned.
