Yes, it is safe but you will have to flash recovery with Odin. Read "Option 1" on the How To Root guide:

It shows you how to flash recovery with Odin first and then to use the recovery to install root.
Once you have your recovery installed, you can backup your existing ROM and then just flash a new rooted ROM if that is what you want to do.
Current Devices:
Primary Line: Samsung Note 2 (T-Mobile)
Work Line: HTC Inspire 4G (AT&T)
Tabs: Samsung Galaxy 10.1 & iPad 2
Console: Ouya

I'm old school, used to work for T-Mobile back in the day & my first Android was the HTC G1.
