Information required for online contractor portal
Control of Contractors at Glasgow Airport are now using a new system for inductions and booking works in (We no longer do induction on-site). Everyone who comes to the site to carry out work or anyone booking jobs will be required to provide their email address, a selfie and their job title via the attached form. All applications will be replied to from the new system Onelook/Safepermit. Once you receive an email back you will need to complete the online induction and complete the questions before a new contractor pass will be issued.
If you are just booking a job in all that is required is an email address, so access to the system can be given to complete a work authorisation request and/or permits. The 3-day notification period still applies.
An email address, selfie, Company & job title are required for anyone coming to work on-site and for anyone to book in work just an email address is required. The 3-day notification period still applies.

The CAA will then notify the airport. We will check whether the crane falls within our area for safeguarding and if it does, carry out an assessment. In some circumstances, a more detailed assessment will be required and could extend the time taken to grant a permit. A charge will be required in this case, the cost of which will be determined on a case by case basis.
The CAA recommends initial contact using the notification at least eight weeks before the erection of the crane.
The CAA also recognises that there are times when very little notice is given to the crane user therefore additional notification timescales have been created as follows:
1.PLANNED LONG-TERM PROJECTS: Notification to be sent to the CAA at least eight weeks (40 working days) before the erection of the crane. The CAA will then identify parties that may be affected by the crane and inform the crane user and affected parties about the next steps.
2.AD-HOC PROJECTS: Notification to be sent to the CAA not later than 5 working days in advance. The CAA will then identify parties that may be affected by the crane and inform the crane user and the affected parties about the next steps.
3.UNFORESEEN AND URGENT PROJECTS: If there is an unforeseen and urgent requirement to erect a crane within 5 working days from the notification, the crane user is required to contact Glasgow Airport by completing a crane permit application form and emailing it to GLAcranes@glasgowairport.com . The CAA Crane Notification Form (DAP1924) form must then be completed and submitted to the CAA as soon as possible and advise that Glasgow Airport has been contacted and the reason for less than 5 working days’ notice.
Note if the crane is operating further than the 6km range of Glasgow Airport, the notification form should still be submitted to the CAA, who will process such notifications at the earliest opportunity.
Please be aware any crane erected without a positive response received from the CAA or Glasgow Airport may be considered a hazard to air navigation and such a crane operates at the crane user’s risk of endangering the safety of an aircraft.
