Correct use of a lower back arch in the bench press is completely safe, and makes for a more efficient, effective lift.  With the feet firmly planted on the floor and butt firmly planted on the bench, driving the legs against the floor transfers force horizontally up the bench through the hips into the arched back, bracing the chest and shoulders.  It gives the upper body a connection to the floor, and feels as if you are driving your shoulders into the bench when you press.
