    Hi Nader,
    Welcome to Using English.
    Please give your threads better titles. This one could have been "For the interest of the safety" or even just "safety."

    Neither is a complete sentence.
    However,
    In the interest of safety, .... would be the start of a complete sentence.

    Note that there is no "the" before safety unless it's something like "In the interest of the safety of all involved, ..."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
