Is it safe to keep a crock pot in the fridge overnight before cooking?

I'd like to cut up and prepare all my ingredients tonight, put them in the crock pot, put it in the fridge overnight so I don't get food poisoning, and then cook it while I'm at work.
Is that safe to do? Or do I need to worry about the pot cracking from thermal shock?
I'm sure that it will make the cooking time take longer, but since the recipe says to let it cook for 8 hours and I'll be out of the house for at least ten that shouldn't be an issue.
