Building and construction industry guidelines
The Queensland Code of Practice for the Building and Construction Industry (the Queensland Code) was published in 2000. The Code outlines the Government’s expectations for the principles and standards of behaviour to be observed within the building and construction industry in Queensland.
Implementation Guidelines (Guidelines) expand on the priorities and objectives of the Queensland Code. The Guidelines promote effective workforce management at all levels of the building and construction industry that achieves the objectives of the Queensland Code.
In particular, these Guidelines support:
- Proactive management of workplace relations: Workplace relations practices shall ensure the strict rule of law applies so all parties are protected from unlawful conduct.
- Cost efficiency and productivity: Projects are to be delivered on time and within budget with real value for money for the Government and the Queensland taxpayer.
- Workplace Health and Safety and Rehabilitation: Parties shall achieve and maintain high standards in workplace health and safety and rehabilitation management and practices.
- Innovation and continuous improvement: Parties are to demonstrate a commitment to innovation and continuous improvement in workplace and workforce management practices at the enterprise and project levels, and in the industry generally.
