      Hi John. I’d suggest that you lay the piece flat if possible, rather than standing on edge. Then, open the saw (if you are right handed, have the work piece on the left and pivot the saw to the right) so that you are not pinching the work piece. This will allow you to see what is happening. Beyond that just follow standard miter saw safety procedures. Have a look at this page https://www.wwgoa.com/?s=miter+saw which has lots of miter saw tips and tricks. You may also find something there that helps with your procedure.
