Dumbbell Bench Press and Back Pain

Hey, I'm wondering if after the completion of a dumbbell bench press there is a risk for injury. When the dumbbells are moved to the thighs and the lifter sits up is that movement injurious to the spine? How is that different than a sit-up with its high compression forces on the spine?
