The safety of our customers and staff is our priority and the QBCC has put in place some preventative measures designed to reduce the risk of COVID-19 to everyone.
If you have recently travelled overseas, are feeling unwell, or exhibiting any symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you contact us online or by phone instead of visiting a QBCC office.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include:
A site supervisor licence allows an employee or officer of a licensed contractor to supervise building work under the contractor’s licence. A site supervisor’s licence may be issued for any class of licence.
How to apply
If you are applying for a Mechanical Services Site Supervisor licence, please refer to the mechanical services pages for the application form and documentation requirements.
Defective work by subcontractor
Peter is a licensed builder with a new home construction underway. Peter’s waterproofing subcontractor Eric hasn’t installed a compliant water stop angle and won’t repair it. Peter believes the work is defective.
Peter is eligible to use our EDR service because Peter is the principal contractor, the work is domestic building work and the contract has not been completed.
Our role in keeping building sites safe
In recent years, fatalities and serious injuries on building sites have heightened the need for the QBCC to be quickly notified of safety incidents on site.
Without swift notification we cannot undertake the necessary immediate enquiries, which in turn hampers our contribution to reducing unsafe practices. In November 2017, legislation was introduced requiring our licensees to notify us of any safety incidents.
