I've been fairly cavalier about personal H&S over the years, and still have all my fingers and toes. Just....
OK, so I accept the point about safety specs, overalls, NOT long hair and routers, non-slip footware, dust masks and so on. However, I've never worn gloves when 'woodworming'.
In lots of stores over this way, one can purchase Kevlar knitted gloves quite cheaply - around £5/pair - and I use a pair when hauling anchor chain on my sailboat. The flakes of rust are sharp, and so are the bits of crustacean that inhabit the seaweed that gets entangled.
I can't help wondering if there are workshop processes where a pair of such gloves would be really good news. Thoughts of others....?
