In brief: Safe use

Prudent no. Actually low back exercises are rarely necessary- its a strong muscle to begin with, but any such exercises should be done with legs together and with no weight to minimize impact.
Work your abs by standing back against the wall and feet our 4 inches, push your low back into wall with your abs and hold.
