Who Are We?

Host Safety and Training Pty Ltd was founded by family team Matt Keating and Dave Cassells in 2016 and is still supported by the same family influence today. From humble beginnings, HOST acquired The Australian Institute of Resources Training PTY LTD, RTO 40772 as a subsidiary in early 2017 to continue to build the business on excellence and to service our clients. Starting on the Sunshine Coast, the business now has footprints and offices in Gladstone, Mackay, Victoria and Northern Territory servicing many clients and projects along the way.

The business was started with a vision to provide the highest level of project management, training and safety consultation on offer. Together we have over 50 years of experience in the mining, oil & gas and construction industries, and have taken this experience into the safety and training industry.
