For adolescents and young adult never smokers, we used to think that these products were certainly safer forms of nicotine delivery.  We also recognize that they contribute to nicotine addiction and make no mistake, JUUL, which is the most common electronic cigarette device used among adolescents and youth, packs quite a nicotine punch and there is no doubt that adolescents and young adults find themselves casually experimenting with vaping and then finding themselves just as, if not, more addicted than individuals with cigarettes.  We don't consider them safe.  We consider them to be safer than traditional cigarettes.  But as a parent, I certainly would recommend non-use.
