Airport Work Safety and Management

Currently, IAS provides Project Works Management and Aerodrome Reporting and Works Safety Officers (AROs & WSOs) to a number of major Defence sites in support of major airfield upgrades.

Additionally, IAS has recently provided AROs and WSOs in support of terminal upgrades to civil airports. IAS has trained and fully equipped AROs and WSOs able to deploy to multiple aerodromes concurrently.

IAS AROs and WSOs possess;

  • Aerodrome Reporting and Work Safety Officer Certificates
  • Radio Operator Licences
  • OH&S Inducton Cards (Construction Industry)
  • Security Industry Licences
  • Senior First Aid Certificates

IAS deploys staff in their fleet of modern vehicles, fitted with;

  • Vehicle Mounted Dual Hazard Beacons
  • Hard Wired ICOM Airband VHF Radio
  • Hard Wired ICOM UHF CB Radio
  • Handheld ICOM Airband VHF Radio
  • Handheld ICOM UHF CB Radio

Each vehicle is equipped with;

  • Temporary Aerodrome Markings
  • LED Temporary Aerodrome Lighting
  • Witches Hats (Limit of Works Markers)
  • Displaced Threshold Equipment
  • Portable ‘B’ First Aid Kit
  • Hearing Protection
  • High Visibility Safety Vests
  • Fire Extinguisher

Other equipment to ensure the safety of contractors and visitors on the worksite.


The provision of each ARO or WSO with this vehicle and equipment ensures that they are fully equipped to operate on any aerodrome at any time, and are able to operate as an individual or as a team member. In addition, IAS carries additional stocks of ICOM UHF handheld radios, able to be handed to contractors for ease of communications across the aerodrome and around the worksite. IAS is a corporate member of the Australian Airports association, and is therefore continually updated with changes to aviation legislation, standards and compliance.

IAS work safety management activities are heavily risk managed through the IAS Aviation Risk Safety Management System. IAS staff are proficient in the Method of Works Planning process and subsequently deploy AROs and WSOs to manage the operational aspects of the work once commenced.

This includes;

  • Complete NOTAM management
  • Worksite Obstruction Marking and Lighting
  • Site Specific Inductions
  • Safety Briefings
  • Weather Briefings
  • Incident Reporting
  • Site Visitor Induction
  • Safety Brief and Registration

Furthermore, the IAS Work Safety Manager will act as the onsite facilitator between the airport operator, stakeholders, contractors and Works Project Manager freeing the Project Manager to manage the work at hand, affording the airport operator time to get on with the daily work routine.
