We encourage hosts to think carefully about their responsibilities.
Hosting offers rich experiences, but it comes with a certain level of commitment.
In addition to the Health and Safety Standards, here are some ways you can be a responsible host.
What can I do to make my experience safe for guests? Complete a RAMs form. Explain potential hazards to your guests and make them aware of their responsibilities for a safe experience.
Indicate local emergency numbers including the nearest hospital.
Make a first aid kit easily available.
Ensure you have a functioning smoke alarm. Provide a functioning fire extinguisher and complete required maintenance.
Always be mindful of your guests' privacy. Fully disclose whether there are security cameras or other surveillance equipment at or around your place. Make sure you are aware of and comply with applicable laws.
Establish safe occupancy limits - your local council may have guidelines.
Go through your space to identify any areas where guests might be at risk and either isolate, or remove the hazard/risk or have a plan to mitigate any risk. Remove or secure any objects that may be dangerous to your guests. (Complete a Risk Analysis and Management Forms (RAM's). Certain adventure activities require a health and safety audit. When we conduct our review on your experience we will contact you directly to discuss.
Ensure your space is safe for children, or else notify guests of potential hazards.
If you don't allow smoking, we suggest posting signs to remind guests. If you do allow smoking, ensure you have ashtrays available in designated areas.
