It would depend on where you are based.
People in the world trade centers would have thought that they were safe, and yet a plane hit them.
People who travel at least get to see a bit of the country/world whilst travelling.
How safer? Has a giant cupboard fallen atop of you?
I believe due to that nature of a stationary job, (which I assume you mean basically office-sort of general work?) that this particular job would win out in the long run.
