Safe Action means the slide has to cycle to reset the trigger, the gun is partially cocked at reset, energy from the trigger pull completes the cocking process, trigger pull is the same every time and typically there's no external safety.

So operation is simplified to the greatest extent practical and the external safety is energy required to actuate the trigger, not a mechanical safety.
