I do it outside with a mask on.
I just know somebody is going to sig that.
Good ventilation and a filter mask will protect you from the dangers of PVC dust inhalation - and in fact is a good precaution whenever you are dealing with cutting/sanding/drilling/anything else that creates a lot of particulate matter (dust).

If you want to check it out, just research it and I'd love to hear your thoughts.
There is already a thread concerning how to work safely with plastic. If you want to make another one for PVC specifically, you can present the research you've found and efficient techniques.
This is not the place to hold an open forum however.

There isn't really much to discuss. PVC is quite safe, and all the "proper" ways to cut it don't release fumes or fine particulate. If you really have to release fine dust (e.g. cutting slots with a crappy dremel bit), just follow the same steps as you would if you were spray-painting, or applying some noxious solvent weld - do it outside, preferably with a respirator.
