PPE can make a fatal accident not fatal.  A serious injury accident not so serious and a minor accident no injury at all.  
I fall timber 5 or 6 days a week weather permitting. Good boots, six anchor web quality helmet with screen and hearing protection, don't start the saw without chaps on and quality gloves.  
You get used to it even in hot summer weather.    Just part of the only job I ever wanted to do.
I have a three inch scare across my forehead from a junk of wood that kind of blew up on the wood splitter one day.  Never saw one go quite like that before or since.    Now I at least wear eye protection running my splinter.     To many pretty women to see so I don't want my vision impaired. :D
Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.
