    A.

    For here implies that you help or make something happen, whereas with means that something helps or supports you to do things. Words are like tools, and they help you express your ideas. In most circumstances, you work with a tool, not for a tool.

    If you think about what would happen if the speaker was successful in finding those words, you get "He expressed his concerns about public safety ________ words". Which would you put there, "with" or "for"?
