I have a junction box similar to yours that I mounted on a piece of 1/2 inch plywood. With the plywood screwed to my bench, I feel it is pretty safe.

It has a switch and a receptacle so I can start my shop vac without having to get under the bench to reach the on/off switch on the shop vac. One end of the extension cord plugs into an standard outlet. The shop vac plugs into the outlet on the box and is controlled by the switch. It had been working just fine for the last 3-4 years.
