No problem, and from the shutdown man page:
The -F flag means `force fsck'. This only creates an advisory file /forcefsck which can be tested by the system when it comes up again. The boot rc file can test if this file is present, and decide to run fsck(1) with a special `force' flag so that even properly unmounted filesystems get checked. After that, the boot process should remove /forcefsck.
So basically you can do the same thing with:
shutdown -r now
If it for some obscure reason won't remove that file and continues to run fsck on bootup, just rm the file.
