Elevated Work Platforms


The safety and security of Melbourne Airport's employees, contractors, service providers, airline and retail customers, and the travelling public is our highest priority.

As such there are a number policies that must be adhered to, and permits that must be applied for before works can commence.

Melbourne Airport (APAM) owns a number of Elevating Work Platforms (EWPs) that are available for use by our contractors and third parties. All parties using EWPs must adhere to the Elevating Work Platform (EWP) Use and Access Guideline.

Third Party Companies must sign the Plant and Equipment Indemnity and Release. To get a copy of this please call 03 9297 1622.You will not be able to apply to use an EWP until the Plant and Equipment Indemnity and Release has been completed.

Send your approved application form, along with a copy of your relevant operator ticket/licence to f[email protected] a minimum of 48 hours before the EWP is provided. Please note that your application is subject to approval by Melbourne Airport - this means that once you have sent in your application you are not automatically authorised to access and use the EWP.
