moving blown in cellulose?

I have a cape code and just had about 12" of blown in cellulose added to the floors behind the kneewalls. It was blown in over plywood so there is no danger in falling through the ceiling to the first floor if I happen to be in there. My question is if there ever is a need for me to get into this area (ex. to get to the junction box to the fan of my first floor bathroom) would I damage the insulation if I were to push it out of the way to create a path and then cover up the path being careful not to condense the insulation?

I mispoke. It is blown-in fiberglass insulation, not cellulose.

There will be no problem unless the insulation gets compacted in the process. You can move it out and back, then fluff it as you leave.
