In brief: It varies

People with congestive heart failure, or hypertension, chronic kidney disease need to be on a low sodium diet, usually 4000 mg or less per day.
Other folks need not be so restiricted. High na intake may be required in some heavy perspiration situations. (gatoraid) so that a "safe' dose is not the same for everyone. In what context is your question framed.?
