We recommend the following precautions as safety measures:

First of all be assured that you will not meet with life-threatening situations.  The people there are secure within their lives and are friendly. There may be a few local guides and/or mule-renters who will try to extract extra money from you, but this is not to be taken seriously. As long as you take precautions against theft, you, alone or with your partner, may roam the mountain safely. 

If you are not traveling as a part of an arranged tour, you should be cautious about your belongings. The locals, especially children, are curious about mountain equipment; you will find that small items tend to disappear. If you are traveling with an agency, you will have a watchman who will guard against thieft.

If you travel with a agency, you and your values are in safe. For example Buklamania has a guard who protect the campsites. 

Nevertheless, it is important to keep your equipment with you even when you are inside your tent. Especially pickaxe and crampons should not be left outside. Be sure to take your valuable belongings with you when you leave your tent.  When you load your mule, take care that nothing will fall out of your packs. Instances of theft are more common in camp 3200m than in camp 4200.
