I was considering using "Safety" as a new schema name in SQL Server. In SSMS, the term Safety is colored as a keyword, but this term is not listed as a reserved keyword in the BOL. The database does not complain if I create and use it, but is there any reason why I should avoid using it?

The word "safety" was used as a PivotTable service option back in the days of SQL 2000. It's still around for backwards compatibility:

Otherwise, it's okay to use as a schema name.

Yes, completely. If the name suits the usage area - feel free to use it.
