Safe - it is blown-in fiberglass, so other than breathing in fibers (and possible skin irritation) to workers during application, no known risks. If doing within the house living area (as opposed to "external" attic area, good idea to do a thorough damp wipedown and mopping afterwards to remove the fibers that get into the air. A good contractor will also have an extractor fan on the job pulling household air from the work area and ejecting it outside while blowing in the insulation.
