Yes, it's perfectly safe to delete them - as long as there's no applications open.

tmp files are created by applications for use whilst they're running, and should be cleared up when the application closes. For a variety of reasons that does not always happen.

Scandisk will not delete them - Disk Cleanup will delete some of them, depending on where they are - a Utility such as System Mechanic click here will hunt them out and delete all redundant files like these and others.
