Facilities Management

Policy/Work Practices

for Contractors, Subcontractors, & Other Related Workers


Daily Sign In/Out

Sign in and obtain an identification badge and parking permit at the beginning of each day you are to work on campus. Return your badge and sign out when you finish each day.

Badges and the sign-in log are located in Facilities Management during office hours (Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.) or in Public Safety and Environmental Health after hours, on weekends, and holidays. Both offices are located in the CSS building located next to the parking structure.

Failure to sign in and out and turn in a daily worksheet/service report shall result in non-payment for services. Failure to be identified by wearing a Facilities Management identification badge on your outer most garments at all times while on campus will result in removal from the premises.


Work Practices

Following are additional items that contractors must comply with:

Hot work (e.g. cutting, welding, grinding, or any activity that may generate sparks or is the potential for fire): Prior to beginning work, a permit must be obtained from Public Safety and Environmental Health. When work is finished for the day, you must inform Public Safety and Environmental Health to be on fire watch.

Chemicals, adhesives, flammables, or hazardous materials: Any such materials to be used in operations being conducted must be disclosed and MSDS sheets must be on site for immediate review by UMD personnel. Contractors must disclose any fume/odor generating activities that may impact building occupants.  Failure to do so will result in cessation of operations and a review of contractor performance.

Full Disclosure of Activities: The University of Michigan – Dearborn reserves the right to refuse entrance into any building on the premises without advance knowledge of the contractor’s arrival or full disclosure of activities. Activities that may impact owner operations such as loud noise, drilling, fumes/odors of any sort, alarms, etc. must be discussed with and approved in advance by Facilities Management. Any lost time or increased costs that may result due to contractor’s failure to comply with these procedures will not be the responsibility of the owner.

Your cooperation will ensure a safe and healthy environment is maintained for students, faculty, and staff. Questions may be directed to the Facilities Management at 313-593-5270.
