Welcome. Try to keep fingers away from blade is best advice I give to woodworking beginners.
Others will chime in soon.

I own and use a Milwaukee table saw on a regular basis and have reasonable experience of using other table saws both site and workshop type.

If you are not familiar with using table saws then my advice would be to watch and read everything you can related to the subject.

On YouTube I found 'Stumpy Nubbs' and 'Gosforth Handyman' to have easy to understand table saw videos. Bob Chase was a veteran woodworker in the US but he has some good table saw tips worth viewing too.

Basic safety I know but I always use a guard when possible and always isolate the power supply before making any adjustments that take you near the moving parts; simply turning off is not enough when near the blade or drive parts.

Some aspects are different as things are a bit different in the US as you can use dado stacks on extended arbours which are not allowed in the UK.

The table saw is a great tool and if used with confidence, care and respect will serve you well.
