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.
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.
Missing Training Records
Tracking subcontractor training gets harder over time. Using spreadsheets are time-consuming and can miss outdated licenses.
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.
High Quality Submittals and JHAs
Reduce emails and improve compliance before work starts with guided templates and their own subcontractor portal for JHAs, Safety plans, and SDSs and more.
Guided Compliance: Easy-to-use templates guide subcontractors through the submission process.
Review Status: Instant visibility of submitted documents and their review status.
Digital Signatures: Capture worker signatures via SMS or QR code and see workers who haven't signed-on to JHAs.
Automated Training Tracker
Improve training compliance and never scan another license.
Expiry Notifications: Automated systems highlight training expiry dates and skills gaps.
Orientation Compliance: Ensure everyone has completed your company and site orientation before starting work.
No Spreadsheets or Scanning: Say goodbye to manual certificate management with our digital solution.

HammerTech Workflows for Subcontractor Management
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.
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.
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.
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?
