Subcontractors Carry a lot of Delivery Risk for General Contractors.

Compliance with your safety processes and drawing on their specialist risk management knowledge is key...but that's easier said than done.

Poor Quality Safety Submittals icon

Low-Quality Safety Submittals

Generic plans like JHA and Safety Plans don't help you plan. Missing reviews can result in unsafe work sites.

Slow Issue Close-Out

Safety fixes often take too long and require many phone calls and disappointing site visits.

Tracking subcontractor training gets harder over time. Using spreadsheets are time-consuming and can miss outdated licenses.

Help Subcontractors Contribute to Safety

HammerTech helps you communicate safety expectations with subcontractors and workers to make safety a team sport. 

Access to a central platform makes it easy for subcontractors to plan and contribute to safe work throughout construction:

  • Self-Managed On-boarding: Subcontractors submit and manage all safety documentation like safety plans, SDSs, equipment and worker enrolments autonomously.

  • Increased Accountability: Set clear expectations and track to deadlines for higher quality plans with less chasing.

What is the pricing for subcontractors?

HammerTech is FREE for subcontractors. To use HammerTech on a project, only general contractors need to sign-up. Subcontractors will receive a HammerTech welcome email from the general contractor before the project starts to gain access to the HammerTech subcontractor portal.

What do subcontractors think about HammerTech?


They love it. No seriously. Subcontractors say once they’ve onboarded with HammerTech they never want to go back to paper, emailing documents or manually managing crews' daily permits and PTPs.

Do subcontractors see all the same data as general contractors?

Subcontractors have their own portal in HammerTech via their own portal which shows just the projects and processes they are a part of. This includes JHAs, observations, personnel and more.

Can subcontractors access HammerTech remotely?


Yes, subcontractors can access HammerTech from any location and from any device, including mobile, tablet, or desktop. This flexibility ensures real-time updates and connectivity, keeping them informed about project developments and safety requirements regardless of their location.

I can really change the image of what a GC cares about and focus on the high-risk hazards and building relationships with our trades. My conversations have shifted from, "Do you have this license, did you do that pre-start inspection?" to, "Hey, I notice you haven’t checked your fall protection this week". Or even better, everything is in order and the conversation is now, "How’s your family doing?
