Yes you can do it safely.

Run the gpu at stock settings - not just one game please, and see how much thermal headroom you have first.
Overclocking the gpu means using more power, thus running warmer, and needing better cooling - raising the fan curve - to accommodate for that.
That gpu is temperature sensitive, so if the thermal headroom is already lacking, just about any overclock will be denied because the gpu would be running even warmer.

The default thermal limit for those blower cards is 81C. The closer the card gets to that, the lower the boost clock will be.
