In honor of National Safety month, Wallet Hub has compiled a list of the nation’s safest states.

Utah is getting high marks as one of the most secure states in which to live.

The study takes more into account than only protection from violence and crime.

It also included workplace safety, natural disasters, stability in the community, traffic safety and financial security.

Our state comes in at No. 11. ranking very high in workplace safety with a very low incidence of natural disasters.

Massachusetts came in at No. 1 as the safest state followed by New Hampshire and Minnesota.

The most dangerous rank in this study goes to Nevada with very low scores in financial and community safety.
