Workplace health and safety

We are committed to Zero Harm at Work. This means that work by contractors, approved subcontractors, and workers for BAS does not risk the health and safety of employees, customers and members of the public. It is a statutory requirement that all contractors and subcontractors comply with all current Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation when providing works and services.


Contractors and their workers including approved subcontractors need to complete the Building and Asset Services (BAS) work health and safety (WHS) induction before starting work on any BAS-managed site.

The induction takes about 30 minutes to complete.

To start the induction:


Username: hpwcontractor

Password: induction

When you complete the induction

You will receive a certificate after completing a short assessment. The bottom section of the certificate must be signed, detached and be easily accessible while working on BAS-managed sites. You will need to show the certificate or a photo of the certificate when requested or it may result in non-conformance. Our on-site representative will assess each situation individually. They will review the contract scope, risk and time for delivery and discuss with the contractor options to replace the worker on site until the worker successfully completes the induction. 

You can complete the BAS WHS induction at any time after successful BAS registration or subcontractor approval and it must be undertaken every two years.

Check our frequently asked questions to find out more about the BAS WHS induction.

Working with asbestos

There are strict work health and safety requirements when working with asbestos and asbestos containing materials.
Building and Asset Services requires all contractors, as a minimum, to comply with the asbestos legislative and licensing/certification requirements as set out by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ). For details, visit the WHSQ website.
