Lodging an application for OHS minor works funding

OHS minor works funding will be considered for issues of non-compliance with Occupational Health and Safety Legislation, Standards and Regulations. Consideration will be given to providing funding assistance for completion of OHS Projects where a significant commitment of funds has already been made by the University, Faculty or School. All works must be able to be carried out within an agreed timeframe to ensure there are no funding carryovers into the following year.

Review and approval

The Director OHS and Manager Asset Services review all applications and consider how much funding is able to be contributed towards costs. You will be notified of decisions associated with the original hazard request. If the costs (fully or partial) are approved to be drawn from the OHS minor works fund, then the approved request will be passed on to Property and Facilities Division to transfer the approved amount to the business unit. Funds are transferred to the client, who are then required to complete the procurement as nominated below. Please provide a chart string or other cost centre to which we can transfer the funds.

The role of procurement rests with the client, however it should be procured in the appropriate manner and adhere to UQ’s Purchasing Policy (PPL 9.40.01 Purchasing).
