Site Diary > Updating Daily Site Diary

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

The HammerTech Site Diary is a daily collation of Worker Numbers, Visitors, Site Updates, Inductions, Plant and Incidents. The HammerTech system automatically creates the Site Diary on a daily basis, allowing Subcontractors and Main Contractors to input their updates as required.
