Well I will disagree with you on this. I had 20+ years experience and used a push stick. Had a face shield and no blade guard because of type and size of cuts I was doing. I still cut off my finger. Sometimes experience is only an excuse to think you are better equipped to do a unsafe practice. It don't matter if you are aware of it or if you just fail to see it because of the experience you have, it still can have the same result. In my case Like I have said a thousand times. Everyone I know considers me extremely safe with equipment , guns etc. I just figure the starts and planets were aligned against me on that day. You never know when and experience can help or hurt your chances of having an accident.
I agree with Cman the kickback danger comes from lack of control of the pieces between the fence and blade.
A good saw guard and riving knife is a must on any table saw and if anyone else worked in my shop, that would be the way it is.
Don't do what I do, I have never used either and never had a woodworking accident ever. My hands don't get close to the blade ever.
Started wooworking with my dad since grade school (1960's), when he was still alive. He taught safety at such a strict level, that it was just born in. It was so strict, that if ever I had an accident, I would have been too scared to tell him.
First nature is just to always keep my hands out of harms way from moving cutters and if not possible, make a jig or a plan.
To cut the board shown in the vid, due to its small size, I would have used my band-saw and finished with two or three strokes of my hand plane, in just about the same time.
