I assume you are refering to the toxicity factor? If so, I wouldn’t worry about that, it’s only the berries that are poisonous. It is a stomach and digestion issue at that, there is no skin rash problem with it.
As far as working with it, no problem. It is a fine grained, very white, wood. Most people use it for small inlays or carvings, it’s hard to get in big pieces.
