Just to clarify -- From the ELRepo web site ( http://elrepo.org ):

This is the main channel and is enabled by default. As this channel
should not contain packages also present in the distribution, it
should be safe to run a 'yum update' with this repository channel

The elrepo-extras channel provides packages and their dependencies
that replace/update RHEL distribution packages. It may be enabled in
the /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo file or used with 'yum

In other words, the packages in the elrepo-extras repo may conflict
with the distro packages but this repo is shipped disabled by default.
Using elrepo is therefore safe unless you make modifications of course
