Safe to staple two cables with one staple?

Is it OK and safe to put one 6/3 wire (approx 1in thick Grey cable) powered by a 40amp do breaker and a 8/2 (orange cable) powered by a 30 amp do under one cable staple?

It is probably safe, but the staple may not be listed for that use.

If it is orange and on a 30 amp breaker it's probably a 10-2 NM-B cable.
