Increases productivity so we can spend more time on site supervising and identifying hazards

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.

Pros

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 as Hutchies' WHS Support Tool

HammerTech has a genuine desire to improve their product offering in line with client requirements. The owners and senior management are active in seeking opportunities that will enhance the client experience. Since the implementation of the HammerTech system Hutchinson Builders has experienced; - improved data integrity and elimination of data conflict due to operating within a single system. - gains in productivity through a significant reduction in double handling of data, - increased visibility into trends and spikes in 'issue' and 'incident' outcomes, Other areas which have had positive outcomes are; - contractor registration process - plant induction process and records - Permit To Work process - inspection and issue recording processes HammerTech is currently re-configuring the incident and injury management modules to better match Hutchies current operational requirement.

Pros

HammerTech has an overall good fit for the construction industry. HammerTech presents as a 'partner' in our commercial arrangement opposed to a 'fee for service' supplier. This is amplified by the fact that the owners and senior staff have hands-on construction industry experience and understand the challenges of maintaining internal and external compliance requirements that present as a part of the construction industry.

Cons

Some aspects that could be redesigned to better suit construction businesses in today's environment are the; - the recording and management of regulator notices, - the issue an receipt of CARs, - the recording and management of incidents. The system as it stands does have functionality in these areas however recent internal reviews and external audits have highlighted opportunities for improvement to our systems in these areas. We are currently in positive discussions with HammerTech to facilitate these revisions on our behalf.

Reasons for Choosing HammerTech

1. Owners are directly involved in the business 2. Company has operational experience in the construction industry 3. Australian owned private company 4. Developers are based in Australia 5. Owners and Senior staff listen to their customer feedback, and more to the point they respond appropriately with a genuine desire to improve the collective lot of the client base 6. Owners and senor managers are available

Construction Review

My experience is alright so far.

Pros

The access to utilize the software to streamline subcontractors from project to project is awesome. The ease of having pretty much everything in 1 spot.

Cons

There is no app. Doing safety inspections is a cumbersome at best and takes substantially longer than the time we have.

Reasons for Switching to HammerTech

Company wanted a platform with more features.

Efficiency in Safety management

My experience has been positive and enjoyable. As with everything new there is a learning curve which is unavoidable however the results are worth the effort allowing a construction team to implement a large range of safety tools on a project in an effort to have better communication and zero injuries.

Pros

What I like most about this software is the ability to utilize a complete range of Safety management tools from one accessible platform that the entire construction team.

Cons

I have not found anything I am displeased with so far. If the user is willing to engage with the software and learn it's capabilities it can be beneficial for any construction team application.

Reasons for Switching to HammerTech

Company decision to have a more all inclusive platform.

Safety Software that suits

Hammertech has been integral in the upskilling of staff and standardising of our safty system. It's ease of roll-out has struck the right balance with not being dumb whilst ensuring everyone is educated to use it as a tool to do their job.

Pros

Its totally customisable to the company. This means you can be compliant but streamlined in your approach.

Cons

It's lack of integration with document management and other software, sure you can use it for multiple aspect but it's key focus is compliance and safety

Reasons for Choosing HammerTech

It's customisablitliy along with the ease of use for our subcontractors. It enabled us to have the trades better prepared for our sites come day one on site.

Reasons for Switching to HammerTech

Procore safety features weren't robust enough and it was too hard to get subcontractors to use the software.
