    Safe Cover/Safety Cover

    In the following context, is it possible to use "safe cover" instead "safety cover"?


    Do not remove the safe cover while the equipment is in operation.

    Not a teacher.
    I think the collocation that counts.
    Words like safety helmet/harness/glasses, etc.
    but safe journey/arrival/return, etc.
