‘Hosts’ at Australian Hostels may have been a ‘host’
Australian hostels have been criticised for allowing their staff to live in a home that is “a host” and are being criticised for “failing to report any concerns” about their safety.
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) reported that Australian hosts were living in a “host” apartment with a “small kitchen” that “was clearly visible” to the host and “was not locked.”
A spokesperson for the hostel said they were unable to “confirm whether there was any problem with the host”.
The ABC said the “host’s” residence “was in a residential area with a shared kitchen and laundry room, but no locked doors.”
The hostel’s policy states that all staff must be at their accommodation at all times.
It adds that “it is important to note that these premises are owned and managed by host organisations.
All hosts are expected to follow their own safety guidelines and to take any appropriate measures when in the presence of others.”
However, the host told the ABC that “the apartment was a guest house, not a host”.
It added that “there is no record of any incidents of safety breaches or other incidents at hostels in Australia” and that “hosts have never reported any concerns to us about safety.”
Hosts ‘have never reported concerns’ The ABC contacted host organisations for comment and received a statement from the Hostels Association of Australia.
The organisation said “host operators have never failed to report safety issues to us.”
It said that “we have always taken safety very seriously and we have never had any safety issues at hostel properties.”
“Hosts are expected, as guests, to maintain a high level of self-discipline, self-awareness, selfless service and respect, which is part of our standard operating procedure.
They should also make reasonable efforts to provide for themselves and their family and friends.”
It added: “Hosting organisations are not required to take or maintain reports from host operators of any kind, including reports of safety issues, to the Hosts Association of Australian Human Rights Commission.
The ABC reported that hosts “are expected to maintain high levels of self discipline, self awareness, selflessness service and selfless services.” “
We recognise that host operators may not be able to monitor their premises as closely as they would like and are always on the look out for potential safety issues that may be arising.”
The ABC reported that hosts “are expected to maintain high levels of self discipline, self awareness, selflessness service and selfless services.”
The statement added that hosts are not expected to report “safety issues” to host organisations “in any way.”
The organisation also noted that the “Hosters Association of Australasia” is “actively looking into any safety concerns raised about hosts and will work closely with the relevant host operator organisations to ensure appropriate action is taken.”
The group also called on host organisations to “take and maintain the utmost care to ensure that host services and accommodation are safe and sound.”
“In our view, hosts should be proactive in identifying and responding to any safety risk.” “
‘Host host’s’ home was not locked ‘Host operators are expected and should take and keep the utmost attention to ensuring that host premises are safe, secure and secure,” the statement continued. “
In our view, hosts should be proactive in identifying and responding to any safety risk.”
“We appreciate that it is disappointing that host organisations are failing to take this important step in ensuring that hosts and guests are safe. “
The Hosts association welcomes the ABC’s findings and will be engaging with host operators in the coming days to determine whether or not there is any further action to be taken.”
“We appreciate that it is disappointing that host organisations are failing to take this important step in ensuring that hosts and guests are safe.
Host operators have an important role to play in ensuring safe and secure accommodation and host services are safe for all guests.
We urge host operators and hosts to take all appropriate steps to ensure host premises and host host services remain safe, as we will continue to monitor the situation,” the organisation said.
Hosts were ‘overwhelmed’ with concerns about safety ABC journalist Michael Kavanagh said he “was overwhelmed” with concerns and concerns about the safety of Australian hosts, according to the ABC.
He told the broadcaster the “situation is a real concern” because Australian hosts “have to go to all the trouble to do all the extra work, all the paperwork to prove they are not a criminal”.
He added that Australian host families had told him “they feel the risk is too great” and were “very worried”.
The Australian Federal Police (AFP) also received a complaint and is investigating.
The ABC also reported that “Host owners are required to maintain strict fire safety measures at all host premises.”
