Inspections Setup > Adding/Removing Observation Types

*Admin User only*

The HammerTech system makes the logging of Safety Observations easier by allowing users to configure the Observation Types, including custom fields for raising and closing out the Observations of that type.

To create an Observation Type:

  • Log into HammerTech (if you are not already logged in), then navigate using the left hand menu > ADMINISTRATION > Observation Types
  • Select the 'Add New' button in the top right corner
  • Type the name for the Observation Type (e.g. Safety; Environmental; or Defect, etc...)
  • Select if the Employer (Subcontractor) is allowed to create this type of Observation by selecting the tick-box (This will apply to Observations raised in inspections and Observations)
  • Select if you want inducted Workers to be allowed to raise this Observation Type - workers are currently able to complete equipment inspections and raise Observations if they have been assigned (see Worker Created Equipment Inspections)
  • Select if you want the Observation type hidden from New Observations - this means the Observation type can only be raised as part of an inspection.
  • Select if this Observation can be raised in Meetings, Incidents, and/or Custom Sections
  • Add any custom fields required (See 'HSEQ Inspections Setup > Adding Custom Fields for Observation Types')
  • Then select the 'Create' button at the bottom of the page

To remove an Observation Type:

  • Log into HammerTech (if you are not already logged in), then navigate using the left hand menu > ADMINISTRATION > Observation Types
  • Select the Observation you wish to remove
  • Select the Options button in the top right corner
  • Select Delete
  • Note: When you delete an Observation Type, it will not remove it from existing inspections that have the Observation Type assigned, it will only remove the ability to assign it to future inspections
