Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm Ron Z and I'll be helping you with your question today.
The air bag code #47 is a fairly straight forward code pointing to a problem with the passenger's side seat belt. If there is excessive hair built up in there, this very well may be the root of the problem. Try to clean the belt assembly as best you can. If the code does not clear, then the passenger's side belt assembly/pretensioner will need to be replaced.
In the meantime, it is perfectly safe to drive the vehicle. Only drawback here is, in the event of an accident, the air bags will not deploy and the passenger's side seat belt will not keep correct tension on the belt keeping the passenger safely in the seat. So, just use a bit more caution when driving.
