Once an individual’s physiological needs are satisfied, the needs for security and safety become second priority. Examples of safety needs include protection from elements, predictability to daily life, freedom from fear, access to medical care and promotion of well-being.
Protection from the elements is the main focus of physical safety. The ability to avoid harm or injury creates the feeling of comfort and gives one a sense of security.
Physiological safety does not just pertain to our bodily system working together and keeping one safe, but other systems such as law, stability, order, and freedom from fear.
Part of safety and security needs have to do with our natural desire for a predictable, controllable environment. Safety needs in today's world can manifest themselves as job security, savings accounts and insurance policies.
