I don't understand how this relay is safer from my current relay. What is difference?

read up on safety relais. When a contact breaks and the same same contact closes again the relay is not engaged. You need to actively reset (manual close one of the other contacts) the safety relay for the contact to be able to close again. This is a manual interaction, circumventing your other wiring. Thus it is not dependant on software (which ultimately drives your pins, and thus the relay)
