Hi...

I think, it is safe, the battery itself is in the soft part in the lower half of the assembly. If the film in he lower part is damaged or the battery is bend, then you should replace it. You should also replace the battery, if the capacity decreases, that could be a hint, that the film is broken and the battery is exposed to oxygen.
