Would you agree or not that this would be safe router usage?

I wanted to put mouldings to a strip of black walnut the other day (12mm wide x 10mm thick) but the timber was inclined to come off the spinning router bit. The timber is very slim and my fingers did not want to hold it close to the spinning bit so would the following usage be a reasonably safe way to go.

Fixing a further fence on this side of the timber being moulded?

I would use a feather board instead of the piece of timber as this will push the timber against the fence and stop it kicking back.

Also the top pressure at the out feed side of the cutter is the wrong way round, it should be the same direction as the in feed one.
