In brief: Not the shower type

It isn't necessarily the shower type that matters rather the type of room that you are in.
Most bathrooms are an inside room and the center of the home is typically the safest place to be. Granted, a more stable shower can also provide a lot of support, the type of tub should not keep you from seeking shelter.
