When accessing the table data for any structural element (plate, geogrid, embedded beam row, Fixed end anchor, none-to-node anchor) in a Safety phase in PLAXIS 2D 2016.00, all values in the table show a N/A value. This is due to an issue in the Output program’s table rendering.

This also affects the getresults command for Output’s command line and the remote scripting (Python), in which the getresults gives this message when retrieving structural elements data for a Safety phase (note: it works for other calculation types):
The command did not deliver any results
The structural displacements and forces are still calculated correctly during the Safety’s deformation calculation, but the results are just not accessible in the Output program.
This issue has been resolved in PLAXIS 2D 2016.01!
When still using PLAXIS 2D 2016.00, there is one workaround available, that uses the curves feature in Output with post-calculation selected nodes.
These steps should be followed to get the force for a node-to-node anchor:

For other structural elements, you can use the same approach by selecting a node after calculation.
