Not too sure what you mean by safe, if you mean will it damage either PC or Phone, the answer is No. If you mean will it damage you personaly, I don't know!!!!!!!

Users in my office have complained of the image on their monitors distorting and even programs playing up when their mobiles have rung, near the PC.

If you do not use shielded connecting cables for you computer hardware, when you either receive an incoming call, make an outgoing call, etc. Your devices will experience interference. This is most noticable in CRT monitors and speakers. But it is definately safe, sometimes just a bit annoying if you constantly get phonecalls.
