"Safety takes precedence in everything we do" is the catch phrase used at Beach to spread the message that our culture is focused on working safely above all else.
We are committed to having an incident free work environment and, together with other members of the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA), will continue to regularly contribute company OHS incident data to the APPEA safety database. This voluntary contribution aids in measuring the safety performance of the industry, as well as developing initiatives to continue to improve the safety performance of the industry as a whole.

In FY17, Beach achieved the lowest combined Lost Time Injury Frequency Rate (LTIFR) in five years.
