Inspections Setup > Creating a Checklist

*Admin User only*

  • Log into HammerTech (if you are not already logged in), then navigate using the left hand menu > ADMINISTRATION > Inspection Checklist Types
  • Select the '+' button in the top right corner to add a checklist
  • Select the type from the drop-down menu (Inspection Checklist; Permit Start Checklist; Permit Finish Checklist; Permit Closeout Checklist; Custom Section Checklist; Induction Checklist; Pre-Task Plan Checklist)


  • Type the name for the checklist
  • Type a display name, if required. This will be the name that shows within the inspection, whereas the Checklist Name is used to help organise and order your checklists within the system. For example, the Checklist name might be 'Safety Walk Minutes - 01 - Initial Inspection', whereas the display name in the inspection only needs to show 'Initial Inspection'
  • Select if you wish the checklist to be hidden from the main list
  • Select the blue 'Add Checklist Question' button

  • Type the text to be displayed
  • Select the question type from the drop-down menu (Heading; Text; YesNo; YesNoNa; File Upload; Date; FreeText; Image/Picture; Signature Only; Signature With Name; Inspection)
  • If you select 'Yes / No' or 'Yes / No / Na' then you will be required to select from the following options regarding what issue types can be raised and when - either manually or automatically (See image below of Inspection checklist question)
  • Once you have selected the options for the first question (If 'YesNo' or 'YesNoNa' was selected) then you can copy the setting the next question by selecting the blue 'Copy Settings To New Question' button at the top of the completed question


  • If you need to move a question around, use the drop down to the left of the question to select an index number - the question will move to that position and move everything else down. You can also simply use the green up/down arrows above that. The longer green arrows will allow you to send the question to either the very top or bottom of the page.


  • Once you have finished entering the questions select the yellow 'Create' button. Your checklist will now be created and you are able to add it to an inspection
  • If you wish to hide a checklist, to stop it from being selected within an inspection, go to the list of Checklist Types, select the relevant type and > Edit > Deactivate. The checklist type will now appear at the bottom of the list as deactivated. In the same way, you can reactivate any deactivated checklist types.
