All Property and Facilities Division (P&F) contractors and consultants working for UQ or on UQ sites must:

  • meet legislative requirements
  • follow regulatory health, safety and environmental obligations
  • comply with UQ policies and procedures
  • complete the P&F induction
  • have the relevant licenses and insurances.

P&F is solely responsible for engaging contractors to undertake maintenance work relating to UQ building fabric, structure and services. Schools and faculties should not act as a principal contractor or engage contractors to undertake building-related work.

Induction

All contractors must complete the induction and provide copies of:

  • their specific licences
  • workers compensation
  • third-party liability insurance.

If you employ staff who will be working with you, they must also complete the online induction.

You must complete the re-induction every year to remain a registered contractor at UQ. If the re-induction is not completed or the required forms are not forwarded to UQ, you will be removed from the contractor register.
