Undertaking works

Keeping our passengers, visitors, staff and community safe is our biggest priority and we have a comprehensive Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) system in place to manage safety risks.

Contractors undertaking work on the Perth Airport estate, which may impact Perth Airport’s infrastructure, services, operations or personnel, must abide by Perth Airport Health and Safety procedures.

All contractors who perform works on the Perth Airport estate must complete Perth Airport's on-line induction before commencing work. 

Contractor Inductions are completed via Perth Airport’s Learning Management System - FlightPath.

NOTE: Perth Airport no longer delivers face-to-face Contractor Inductions.

Once the online Contractor Induction is complete, Contractor Induction cards can be collected from:

Airport Services Office

Perth Airport WA 6105 
Phone: (08) 9478 8454

Opening hours: Monday to Friday 8.00am – 4.00pm

The Contractor Safety Manual provides information to Contractors about specific requirements that must be implemented whilst carrying out works at Perth Airport. 

Contractors should read and understand what is required of them in accordance with the Contractor Safety Manual.

Perth Airport administers an Electronic Permit to Work System called PEMAC. 

All Permit Requests must be lodged and tracked on PEMAC.

The PAPL representative will issue the contractor with a PEMAC login following the OSH Works Planning Meeting.

After you have completed the eLearning module, you can use the Contractor How To Guide to assist when raising a Permit Request.

To assist contractors in meeting Perth Airport requirements, we have developed Contractor Guidance Notes which detail the permitting process and outline the general safety requirements for undertaking high risk activities.

Perth Airport has identified seven High Risk Activities (HRAs) that require a Permit.

These HRAs have the potential to impact on Perth Airport's infrastructure, services, operations or personnel.
