Beware of Safety, commonly abbreviated as BoS, is an instrumental post-rock band from Los Angeles, California. The band plays sprawling, instrumental rock that could be classified as post-metal, post-rock, and even math rock. Beware of Safety has six official releases in its catalog: It Is Curtains (2007), dogs (2009), Giants/BoS Split 7" (2011), Leaves/Scars (2011), Lotusville (2014), and Mabon (2015).

In early 2009, Tad Piecka joined BoS on bass, expanding the band to five members.
The creation of 2011's Leaves/Scars was a tumultuous time for BoS with members contemplating quitting the band.
