HammerTech is a cloud-based EHS management suite suitable for organizations of all sizes in general contracting, construction, utilities management, manufacturing, waste management, retail and other businesses that need to manage on-site safety.
HammerTech enables users to set up a public project site to share information with project personnel including safety bulletins and announcements, weather updates and links to other relevant information. Users can configure online employee inductions and store information such as employee contact information, licenses, verification of competency and more.
The Prestart feature lets users upload, save and distribute safety documentation. It also provides version control and updates users when documentation is changed. Other features include incident management, safety walks and observations, plant and equipment management, a site diary, ID card creation, work permit management and meeting management.
Support is offered via phone and email. Pricing is per user per month.

Very user friendly and self explanatory after the first week of using it.
Perfect tool to conduct site safety inspections
Makes safety net look like a children's game
picture upload is also a great option on this program
Getting subcontractors to enter in their company information is too much of a hassle and trying to keep up with man count and man hours.

The software has reduced auditing time on projects. The ability for workers to induct themselves and their plant before arriving on site has streamlined and sped up site inductions.
Lack of cooperation from some contractors to use it correctly or upload documents within timeframes can be frustrating.

Time saving, efficiency, easy to learn.
Free for subcontractors so it is easier getting them on board. Accessibility in the field. I can fix and change stuff if required, not contacting a support service and being charge for every single thing we want changed.
Sometimes the roll out can be clunky which is not a reflection on Hammertech itself just the reality of new systems.

An enormous productivity dividend. We are estimating that our site safety supervisors are on site, identifying, assigning and fixing hazards about 2 hours more each shift, a 25% dividend just there. But more than that we have safer sites. We are also now collecting very sophisticated data to monitor site teams performance, safety performance and contractor performance. This software has many, many hidden benefits.
Uses our forms and templates, creates a huge productivity dividend by having our safety supervisor on site more (instead in office completing forms), The real time notice and assignment of safety issues to a responsible person, data reporting, Site Managers (and myself as the OHSA Manager) can monitor everything on site that is safety related at just a few clicks of a mouse, I can also compare team and contractor performance. We are getting better contractor data now, very helpful for me in calculating more accurate incident frequency rates and a bonus for our contract admin team in assessing financial v productivity performance of a contractor. I have assessed and reviewed many of these types of platforms and HammerTech is the ONLY one that ticked ALL of the boxes i needed. Their customer support is fantastic too and they are very keen to better their product and tailor it to their clients' needs.

Hammertech has been an inaugural change to the business form a QHSE perspective and the best decision we as a company have made moving forward. The ease of use is just so much better than paper trailing! The easiest part is training team to use the system, the hardest is getting the subcontractors to understand that they have to do their part.
Still, a few items to get sorted through the Hammertech system, and looking very much forward to when these happen.

Ease of functionality has seen great buy-in by users. Training and technical support second to none. Great value for money when considering time benefits in using the software.
