Short of a bucksaw and buckhorse I think a miter/chop saw is very safe if used properly. You need to have the log fully supported on the side of the blade that is doing the holding and the other side free from both bed and fence.

I am right handed so I hold the work piece to the bed and fence left of the blade. I will use some scrap wood as needed on the left bed and fence to keep the right side of the piece clear of both. This way there is nothing to cause a blade bind situation.

Bandsawing round objects freehand is a lot less safe. -- Stumpy
