Toby's comment bears repeating:

Distilling phenol is a simple process requiring only a little prudence
to be done safely.  At US$11 a kilo, distillation of crude crystalline
phenol is a good way for scientists to economize.  If phenol distillation
is the biggest threat to one's personal safety, one is fortunate indeed.

We have had no problems with it when done behind a shield with an appropriate
apparatus.
