There is no way to get the Datasheet view working in Safari.

SharePoint Joel has a great matrix of which features work in which browser.


Datasheet view requires an ActiveX control not available for that platform. See Plan browser support (SharePoint Server 2010)


Firefox is the better route for Mac users. But even with Firefox, datasheet won't work as Trevor said, it's an Active X component. The alternative is to use Parallels on the Mac system and give them a Windows environment with IE.
