I would think something with a real safety would be more reliable.
You dont leave one in the chamber and glocks have a heavy trigger pull anyway.

Basically with no safty and a no round in the chamber and a heavier trigger pull, it is probably the safest gun all around. Keep in mind that pulling a trigger on a gun that has a safety with somone shooting or charging you is not safe either.

Racking a slide is a very natural movement. Finding the safety (especially owning multiple guns) is not.

PS - Revolvers dont have a safety either, but no one ever puts them down.
