SWMS > Creating SWMS And Capturing SDS Information

Thank you for your patience while we update our screenshots to the new look. The functionality remains the same, just the look has changed.

  • Log into HammerTech (if you are not already logged in), then navigate using the left hand menu > SWMS > Create SWMS.
  • Select > Provided By and choose from the list of Personnel. Note: The Personnel list will only show Inducted Personnel or the Primary Contact. Use ‘Other’ for non-Inducted non-Primary Contact Personnel and enter their details manually in ‘Provided By Worker Name’.
  • When creating a SWMS it is important that the 'Activity Name’ and ‘Description’ align to the uploaded SWMS document. The 'Activity Name' is a mandatory field and must be entered before submitting the SWMS.
  • Once these fields have been completed upload a scanned or PDF copy of the SWMS Select > Choose File. (10MB File Size Limit)
  • A SWMS that is considered to be high risk can be flagged in the system select the High Risk tick-box (if applicable).

  • When capturing Chemical Hazard SDS within the SWMS, Select the '+Add SDS' button and choose whether you want to associate the SWMS with a New or Existing SDS.
  • If you select Existing, you can search for the SDS in the drop down that appears below.
  • If you choose to enter a New SDS, complete the required information, upload a scanned or PDF copy of the SDS, choose the appropriate Pictograms associated with the Chemical Hazard SDS and include any other required attachments.
  • Additional SDS can be added to the SWMS by selecting  ‘+Add SDS’ again
  • Any additional comments / notes can be added in Comments > Employer Notes.


  • Select the Personnel who are assigned to this SWMS through the tick-boxes. Note: only Inducted Personnel will show in this section. Once additional Personnel are inducted they can be added to this SWMS – see SWMS > How do I assign personnel to my SWMS?
  • Once complete Select > +Submit.
  • Note: Your SWMS will need to be accepted by the Site Safety Manager before you can begin work.


TIP: All details and documentation from previously submitted SWMS is accessible through SWMS > View All. Access this information when submitting a similar / same SWMS for a fast and easy creation.
