About the Airport


 Launceston Airport (APAL) and its tenants engage Contractors to perform a variety of different tasks from time to time. It is of the utmost importance to ensure that we provide a safe workplace for Contractors and that they are fully aware of all the relevant safety, environment and operational requirements at the airport. This will ensure that we can maintain the safety and integrity of the airport, the environment and all airport users.

These requirements shall be achieved by:

  • (a) A consistent process for managing contractors at the airport from their engagement right through to completion of work.
  • (b) Consistent forms for recording that all prerequisite have been completed and that the Contractor is ready to commence work.
  • (c) Specific types of induction that are tailored to the level or supervision to minimise information overload and risk of complacency.

This process applies to all types of Contractor who are engaged to perform Work at the Airport. It does not apply to Visitors. Document APAL-CMP-001 Contractor Management Procedure explains the process and interrelationship between documents.
