    Above your safety or over your safety

    Never consider equipment or experiment safeguarding above your own(?) safety.

    or

    Never consider equipment or experiment safeguarding over your own(?) safety.

    Re: Above your safety or over your safety

    I would re-order the phrase to place the most important point [your safety] first.
    "Always prioritise your own safety above safeguarding your equipment or experiment", or, more simply, "Your safety is more important than your equipment or your experiment".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
