Are the cutoff wedges getting in the gap in the insert? If so a zero clearance insert will fix it.

+1 Especially if the small chunks of wood are angled. It’ll be easier for them to try to wedge themselves into the space between and become little projectiles. I’ve had the blade create enough air movement to pick small pieces up just enough to drop them back on the spinning blade where they then shoot off in a totally random direction.

Maybe a full face shield may be a worthwhile investment.
