In many cases of using safety material created by others, it's a simple matter of courtesy: ask for permission. I expect that in the majority of cases a "used by permission" statement that acknowledges the creator of the material would be granted, thus avoiding any copyright issues. Some materials — such as developing web based content — incur considerable cost and a modest reimbursement through licensing would help offset development expenses.
