Hopefully both human endorsement and safety are explained in the guidelines for the science fair you are entering.

If not, I would imagine that human endorsement and safety are relevent only if your project somehow experiments with humans, in which case generally science fairs will require you to provide additional paperwork that shows that you are following strict safety rules or that an advisor is in charge of safety.

Safety applies to all projects.

If you do a project risky to you, those around you, or your experimental subjects, it won't be allowed.

I would presume that a section on safety would talk about any risks associated with the project and how you managed them. For example, if a project required working with acid, you'd want to mention how you prevented anybody from getting burned by it.
