JHA > Creating JHAs And Capturing SDS Information

  • Log into HammerTech (if you are not already logged in), then navigate using the left hand menu > JHAs > Create JHA.
  • The HammerTech system allows you to upload a JHA on behalf of another Company or for yourself. Simply Select > Employer and choose the company from the drop down menu. Then Select > Provided By and choose from the list of Personnel.
  • Note: The Personnel list will only show Enrolled Personnel or the Primary Contact. Use ‘Other’ for unenrolled Personnel or non-Primary Contact and enter their details manually in ‘Provided By Worker Name’. 
  • When creating a JHA it is important that the 'Activity Name’ and ‘Description’ align to the JHA document. The 'Activity Name' is a mandatory field and must be entered before submitting the JHA.
  • A JHA that is considered to be high risk can be flagged by selecting the High Risk tickbox which automatically sets a periodic review period. To set the review period, see JHA > How do I configure JHAs for High Risk reviews and undertake the reviews?
  • Select if you wish to 'Upload and Approve' the JHA or 'Just Upload', essentially deciding if you wish to approve the JHA or save it to be approved/modified at a later date

  • Once these fields have been completed upload a scanned or PDF copy of the JHA. Select > Choose File. (10MB File Size Limit)  

  • When capturing Chemical Hazard SDS within the JHA, Select the ‘+Add SDS’ button to complete the required information, upload a scanned or PDF copy of the SDS and choose the appropriate Pictograms associated with the Chemical Hazard SDS. Additional SDS can be added through select  ‘+Add SDS’.


  • Single or multiple Acknowledgement Forms can be added select Choose File.
  • Select the Personnel who are assigned to this JHA through the tick-boxes. Note: only Enrolled Personnel associated to the Employer selected at the top of the page, will show in this section. When additional Personnel are enrolled for this Employer, they can be added to this JHA - see JHA > How do I assign personnel and capture their signatures?
  • Review notes and attachments are added through Reviewer Attachment > Select > Choose File and Select > Reviewer Notes
  • The JHA Review Checklist puts in place a trackable checklist to ensure specific requirements have been met prior to the submission of a JHA. Each item is answered ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ by selecting the appropriate tick-box. Where a ‘No’ is recorded, further information is to be added in the ‘Details’ box. To set up the JHA Review Checklist, see Administration > How do I configure a checklist for when I am reviewing a JHA?

Note: The if a checklist has been created, it must be completed for every JHA including JHAs created by a General Contractor


  • Once complete Select > +Create.
  • This JHA can now be viewed in JHAs > View All and/or JHAs > View High Risk JHAs.
