The shoulder rig can be as safe as any other holster, it all depends on your drawstroke.

Sweeping the muzzle around horizontally in an arc? Bad idea.<br>
Not only do you cover yourself with the muzzle but anyone within that 180 degree arc.<br>
Plus the difficulty of stopping on target.

Instead, drop the muzzle nearly straight down as soon as it clears leather, continue the arc forward and up, you don’t cover anyone or yourself and its faster.

Will see if I can find a video on this.

Nice! I had not given up on the idea of a shoulder rig, and it had occurred to me that you could drop and raise up in a more conventional draw motion, safely. But faster as well? It’s almost a win-win!
(faster than the sweep from a shoulder holster, I’d imagine. Not faster than a hip draw)
