I feel like the parent always has the override and authority when it comes to the child’s safety. I understand there could be cultural and personality barriers, but if you truly believe there is a risk then you have to talk to your FIL maybe separately and express how serious you are. If you genuinely tell him about your concern, hopefully your FIL will understand and back off.

Next best thing is practising with the kiddo so they learn how to go down stairs or fall gravefully.
