Safe in what regard? Stability of your game, corruption of game files, embedded virus? etc etc.
There have been some mods or utilities that actually have trojan or other virus crap but those usually get identified quickly by the community and once verified a note to Rappo about them will get them deleted from the site pretty quick, as long as it's real and not just some moron(s) guessing or otherwise calling something a virus when it's not.
Some mods are MP that are fine while others shouldn't be because they provide the ability to cheat. And some of the latter ones will allow running in MP only when the MP mode makes sense, like lan or free roam etc, where people would agree it's alright to have the ability to do or spawn things in those types of MP sessions, when they wouldn't want it during real competative play game modes.
And then there are mods that are too complex to reliably sync objects in MP at all, or modify local game content in a way making them either incompatible with MP generally or would give advantage to the local player other players in the MP sessions wouldn't have, which is just another form of cheating.
There is no blanket answer of "Yes / No" to your "Are all these mods safe?" question.
