You could just as easilly use the word secure!!!
Yes and yes.
I was just pointing out where you may have caused some confusion with your choice of word.
It's all to do with context.
Imagine a man with a gun standing on a high building ledge.
You may say "That man is safe."
Is he safe because he is holding on?
Is he safe because he is not trying to shoot you?
