Depends on the person you’re playing, or the character your playing. Most online player lose to safe-jump automatically, because their last option is block (DP, other invincible move, back-dash, teleport, and oh, now block). So for online purposes, you’ll probably get better results with sweep into safe-jump.
On lower health characters, it may better to go for damage. Safe-jump can also lead to more damage if you mix up empty jump cr.lk, x-up tatsu, or empty jump dp in there. Depends if they block or not. Bad Dhalsims, for example, teleport or backdash before they block.
And I usually hit-confirm into sweep without meter. When I first started using it, I always had to cr.mk xx hado xx fadc>sweep, and cr.mk and cr.hk have the same startup, so the link with the same timing as the other.
