‘’Safety is a common denominator across all aspects of life, hence knowledge should always be shared. It is not a matter for industry it is a matter for humanity.’’ – Doug Bourne.


How safe is safety is referenced in many ways. A condition mostly engulfed by a sense of feeling homely, among many other things. The state of being ‘safe’, the kind of protection from harm or other non-desirable outcomes can be discovered from man-made structural or non-structural forces.

In most cases, those things we feel more acquitted to be around will become perfect framework for the safety we want or need. Safety comes in different forms, mostly tangible/concrete/physical things. Depending on structures, a building’s ability to protect against external harmful events are presumed safe for its inhabitants.

On the other hand, the discussions of safety often include mention of other related terms. Security is such a term very close and with the definitions between these two often interchanged, and frequently appear equated in the same sentence. Readers are left to conclude whether one influence the other. This supports the uniqueness that should be reserved for the wellbeing of individuals. When seen as unique, as one intends, each term will assume its rightful place in influencing and being influenced by the other. Ultimately, the presiding place or any individuals condition should be rightfully and evidently a ‘steady state’.

Sometimes to state what safety is supposed to look like we start searching for codes and standards or engineering designs or operational plans even corporate vision and mission statements. As in any given space, safety is a normative concept. It complies with situation-specific definitions of what is expected and acceptable.

In our world/s of everyday affairs life is challenged either lowly or highly. This is where security is invited by force. The security that serves rightly as process or means, being physical or human, purposed to prevent, and otherwise protecting ordinary people against external or internal dangers, and or actions that threaten or destroy people’s rightful ‘steady state’, and depriving them of their intended purpose for being.

Among many different types of safety systems or security systems. And choosing the two which are barely seen are the likes of private/monitored systems and public/unmonitored systems. These systems are to ensure that having a security system in our lives can protect our valuables and or our loved ones.

Private system, is a kind of safety that is assigned to and by oneself. It can be an honesty system as oneself, trustworthy as oneself and loyalty likewise, depending on one’s way of thinking. This supports an ideology that says as we think, so we are. It is a safety system that is wired just like the vision inside each individual – it is groomed to be just like its author. As many thought words are hanging in our heads clothed with individual penchant for dictionaries – whether typical, political or spiritual. It’s a system that is adorned to stay very close to its master, it births destiny. How identical?

A private system, if seen outside body, it is very authentic and confident like a fruit that doesn’t fall away from the tree. It is a system, if prescribed well guards carefully with good intend. This kind of private or monitored system is one that is commonly used systems and has pros and cons depending on how the mind thinks and acts. It is also quite limited and depending on one’s ability, perception and consciousness. This calls for duty! At some point, on some level we are responsible for our own safety because this system will always alert us if the alarm gets triggered. It starts with self-love.

Public or unmonitored system, such safety promotes civic virtue. With this system, when the alarm sets off it relies on our loved ones. That’s when we know it’s important to trust those who surround us. Here trust is the common aspect. People who know and understand us are a major advantage because these people should be able to look at us and be able to know and pinpoint from where the alarm is being sounded. As we can see the major disadvantage is, of course, that we will be relying on others to hear the alarms and stay on duty. If for some reasons, as this world has its own demands, our trustees or representatives are away frequently or aren’t the proactive types, we can still find safety in our ONE and ONLY God. He is ever present. He does it His way and His way is the Best.

If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you’’ – Psalm 91:9-10.

Why safety? Safety improves multipurpose quality of whatever is guarded, whatever privately or publicly. In some cases, that’s because safe productions tend to be more efficient, clear and visual ones. Eventually, pointing to the matter of focus. By staying in a clear, efficient environment, there is reduced distractions and true focus on the quality of what is happening.

Personal safety can be too personal to manage effectively. Here are some few simple precautions:
• Don’t leave your heart unattended (for instance in a relationship trolley of emotions, or on a social table while being thoughtful) even for a moment – where possible test motives and safety.
• Be vigilant. Watch out for those who left you during the journey and appear friendly when you reach your humble destiny and timing as you sat at a table (an innovative stop/station for instance). It can be used as a common technique to ask for directions as they use their undercover map to divert your focus.
• There are times to keep your mouth zipped up, so that shoplifters can’t see what is in there.
• Consider keeping your persona attached to wisdom (so it makes a particular noise/alarm when it is removed). The longer attached the harder to remove.
• Be positive and wear your happiness inside-out. Sometimes that’s all you need to pull your bag, dash out and occupy your day. There are times when positivity doesn’t look positive, but time will tell. Whatever is done in good conscience will bear fruits of its kind.
