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

Comments: Excellent software package that is built around ease of use on site. There is no point having a system unless the site based employees use it and support it and they love HammerTech. Even the old timers are able to use it and use it well.
Client Customer service is excellent!
The number of improvements within such a short time is indicative of how well HT listen to the feedback they get from their customers.
Cons: it is inconvenient that forms can’t be duplicated and amended. this would save so much time. The reporting element has been challenging

Ease of management of workers
Comments: The system is great at recording vital, basic information, but you can also be as detailed as you want. It’s quite customisable
Pros: Excellent method of capturing inductions, worker critical information, completely mobile. Awesome.
Some workers are confused with re-induction messages the register, then don’t read the message properly to sit their induction.
It doesn’t report very well, reports are difficult to extract, but it’s improving all the time

Assisting our business to mature
Comments: Our overall experience with Hammer Tech has been a positive one. Contractor Management can be difficult, particularly the review of key HSEQ documents. Being able to track document reviews has been the greatest benefit.
Pros: Hammer Tech is an easy to use system that allows the user to access information in real time. It has enabled our sites to remain compliant with our safety management system without the need to be reliant on paper. The ability to track inductions, competencies, actions from inspections and manage contractor documentation has been crucial for our business.
Cons: The only Con has been the inability to access the system in remote regional areas.

Made my job 100% easier. So easy to learn. Customer service is second to none.
Comments: Time saving, efficiency, easy to learn.
Pros: 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.
Cons: Sometimes the roll out can be clunky which is not a reflection on Hammertech itself just the reality of new systems.

Very positive user experience and great support from Hammertech.
Pros: 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.
Cons: Lack of cooperation from some contractors to use it correctly or upload documents within timeframes can be frustrating.

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.
