Abstract: This handbook has been produced by the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia - Queensland Division Inc. (IPWEAQ), for use by Works Supervisors and works staff within the local government and public works industry. The Institute is a professional organisation providing member services and advocacy for those involved in and delivering public works and engineering services to the community. Its members represent practitioners in state and local government and in private industry. It promotes professionalism, education and technical knowledge and holds strategic alliances with other relevant organisations. The first edition of this Handbook was developed from a New South Wales prototype and was extensively modified to take into account the many changes in legislation, regulations, practices and procedures that have taken place over the past few years, and the State differences. The Handbook is Copyright and must not be duplicated in any form. The Handbook is for use by field staff in city, urban and country environments, and it will be of value to younger engineers as they gain their experience in the field. It should be used by members of the workforce to find out what “works staff” do and to open up opportunities for workers seeking advancement in their careers. IPWEAQ can provide assistance to workers who seek recognition for the experience they have gained and also develop their skills – in a non-threatening environment, such as ‘on the job’. In covering such a broad range of activities in the Handbook it has been kept at a level that is not too technical, and assistance of a more qualified person should be sought where required. IPWEAQ acknowledges the NSW Gangers Handbook, the Queensland Department of Main Roads 11AT document, documentation provided by Fitzroy and Sarina Shire Councils, and gratefully thanks Kevin Kerr AM, Murray Donald, Darren Shepherd, Steve Hughes and others who have given of their valuable time, experience and knowledge to the original edition. I commend it for use by all public works practitioners in local and state governments and in private industry.
