For what purpose? Used as an auxiliary movement (shrugs) I wouldn't have an issue. From my personal experience, trap/hex bars tend to create a lot of rounding in the back. I feel its more dangerous of a lift for a beginner than the straight bar. Also don't feel it promotes the same levers that are used in every day strength training.
