Here is some videos to prepare you with shop safety,  and how to use the table saw safely in the shop. The table saw is one of the most dangerous tools in the shop, therefore it’s very important that you watch most or all of those videos before your class/shop introduction. It’s not a tool to be afraid of, but one you’ll approach more confidently and knowledge what to expect from by going through those videos:
