is it ok to update them without updating the BIOS?

You should plan to update them at your next maintenance window. 

Update the BIOS first, then ESM, then PERC driver, then PERC firmware (and other firmware - DRAC, NIC, etc.).

There should not be any issues causing data loss performing these updates, but you should ALWAYS have a backup.
