I think that the LESS elemental damage you take, the lower a chance you have of your items being destroyed. (At least that's how it works in Angband, so it wouldn't surprise me that Sil is similar.)

Other than that, of course if an item is both on the floor AND far away from the battle, it is safe. But this is risky, as swarms of monsters or a bad encounter can force you to flee a level at any point, and after that your items will be lost.

Finally, running away from/stealthing around enemies that you can't bear to fight should always be considered. Sprinting and/or Listen and/or Stealth investment are all useful here.
