Anybody know what this is for?

From the manual

" The PHP safe mode is an attempt to solve the shared-server security problem. It is architecturally incorrect to try to solve this problem at the PHP level, but since the alternatives at the web server and OS levels aren't very realistic, many people, especially ISP's, use safe mode for now. "

Basically it is a kind of method of protecting your server if you plan to host other people on it.

If it's just you then you can turn it off... it's good if you want to use functions like shell_exec() to run shell commands through PHP.

If you have other people on your server you really should turn it on.
