[R] Thread-safeness of unif_rand()?

I'm currently using the unif_rand() function of R to get a random number 
from the uniform distribution in the C-part of a R package. The 
unif_rand() is heavily used. Now I would like to spawn several threads 
within the package in which the function is also heavily used. Is it 
safe and efficient to call this function from multiple threads?
