Safety and Security

Safety-shield and Security-guard
The second basic need in Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs are safety and security needs, and include protection from elements, employment, security, law and order, stability, freedom from fear, and property. Part of safety and security needs have to do with our natural desire for a predictable, controllable environment. Shelter in a safe environment and financial security are examples of this. However, if physiological needs like airway, breathing, circulation, hunger, or thirst become a greater concern, individuals can regress to focus on these more basic needs. A patient’s need for safety and security takes precedence over most other needs other than physiological needs.
