You might use "du -sk /var"  to see, the exact usage by files.  You need to dig down to see any unwanted files that grew huge and either null the file or delete it.

is it safe to clear the tmp directory?

Yes mostly, /var/tmp contains some temporary files.  Some of the temp files might be held by running processes, that I'm not sure.  So, do not use '-f' option while using rm command.
