Open Kettle Canning - Is it safe?

I only can tomatoes, and I always do them by processing the filled jars in boiling water.
I know someone who cooks the tomatoes, then packs them it hot, sterilized jars, and puts the seals on them at that point, Is this really safe? Will any potential bacteria be eliminated considering all the "open-ness" of the process?
