How do I "HR Proof" myself?

I feel like whatever I do my boss is gearing up to fire me... I am a high performer who built most of my consulting practice, yet there's blood in the water and several of my peers are getting laid off.

My useless staff person who is out sick or late most of the time however seems to be judgement proof. In fact I have been told I can't speak to him about his performance. I suspect he has gone with an "I am depressed and any more negative feedback will cause me to self-harm" causing the partners to quake with fear and effectively shielding him.
So... what kind of bullshit can I concoct to similarly protect myself? I need something foolproof. P.S. selling a ton of work and helping everyone doesn't seem to work
