Got a older relative who wants a tablet and I have the original iPad laying around somewhere. Could it still be used safely re security updates and all that?

Would any person want to? Many of the apps will be stopped or not available for the device, loading of feature rich webpages will be dead slow if they fully load at all.

What iOS is it on out of curiosity?

5.1.1 was the last update and that was in 2012. I would say get something that's a few years old instead.

Like warlord said I think it was the last update you could do on it.

I still have the first Ipad and fired it up the other night after being in the cupboard for over 5 years. I found many websites I visit do not render properly although this site did load fine surprise surprise :-lol. Many apps had been retired, some updated and just disappeared off my system completely which I was not happy about. Times have moved on from this early device.
