Try training to flip the safety as a part of a draw so you can keep the safety on. I trained myself that way because I sometimes carry a 1911. I find myself actually flipping a non existent safety when using other firearms. No biggie.
Some safeties are taken off with an upward strike, some with a downward. If someone has both, how do they incorporate this mindset?

Practice, awareness, mindfulness.
Carrying guns that operate the same would be smart.
Why ever be confused?
The safety release of my Hi Power, equipped with SFS (Hammer Down Cocked & Locked), sometimes catches on my holster when inserting the gun. Before I am finished re-holstering, I always make sure the hammer is down (safe position) by pressing it down. It's part of the routine and I will not forget.
Re-holstering my Sig P938 or CZ Compact cocked and locked is a different routine. I prefer the Hi Power to either of them.
Should I ever venture to the 1911 realm, an SFS kit would be the first thing I would add.
If you carry different guns, it may be wise if your EDC summer, winter and Sunday BBQ guns all operate the same way.
Life is a cooperative venture... That's what makes it work.
