Facilities Management (FM) induction

Online induction training

All contractors, consultants, and staff who are involved in the construction or maintenance of campus facilities are required to complete our online Facilities Management Induction Training program. This is a course designed to provide all new personnel with:

  • important information for commencement of works at QUT
  • an overview of important work systems
  • specific hazard information
  • behaviour expectations.

It is a simple, self-paced course, with a short questionnaire at the end to reinforce understanding.

You must complete this induction if you:

  • engage, organise, co-ordinate project or employ any trade or service contractors on behalf of QUT
  • are employed at QUT in a trade or technical capacity
  • are a contractor, including an appointed principal contractor, or consultant providing services in a trade or technical capacity
  • are onsite to do a heavy delivery, such as setting up or operating items of specific high risk plant.

If you engage subcontractors to work on your behalf at QUT, you must ensure supervisory personnel and subcontractors complete the training and have key access (if applicable) before attending the work site.

You do not need to complete this induction if you are a light delivery person such as a courier.

Design standards and guidelines (DSG)

The Design Standards and Guidelines (DSG) specifies the requirements for the design and construction of QUT projects by consultants and contractors. The DSG forms part of all design and/or construction projects and is in addition to the project specific scope of work. All contracts must specify the Edition and Amendments of the DSG pertaining to the project. Standards are chosen for the following reasons:

  • controlling aesthetics
  • providing equity in the physical environment
  • lowering life cycle costs
  • savings gained through bulk purchasing.

Heritage management plans

Heritage management plans have been prepared to assist QUT and the Queensland Environmental Protection Agency to manage changes to the heritage registered sites and buildings within QUT. Importantly, these studies establish a broad philosophy for adapting the buildings and their context, which should be an integral part of any changes.

To request these plans, contact your QUT project manager directly.
