Equipment > Creating Equipment Induction Forms

The HammerTech Equipment Induction system is an easy and customizable process, allowing Equipment to be inducted in a timely and consistent manner.

  • Note: In order to create Equipment and the Equipment Induction Form, we first need to set up the Licences. If not already completed see Administration > Creating and Managing Licences
  • Log into HammerTech (if you are not already logged in), then navigate using the left hand menu > Administration > Equipment Types
  • Once on the 'Equipment Types' page > Select the '+Add New' button in the top right hand corner of the screen
  • Enter in the 'Name' field the equipment type name / description i.e. 'Forklift'
  • Select the appropriate Equipment Category from the drop down list (if this is set up in your system)
  • The next step is to create the 'checklist' that is associate with the Equipment Type, which will be used by the individual that is inducting the equipment onto the site / premises. The HammerTech system will require users to mark each item as ‘Yes’, 'N/A' or ‘No’ when inducting the equipment, with additional notes required for any items marked as ‘No’. List out the checks required ensuring the items are one per line. Note: the Checklist Items box can be expanded by dragging the box from the bottom right hand corner.
  • Note: Entering a # at the beginning of a line will make it text only with no 'Applicable' or 'Not Applicable' option

  • To add a custom field:
    • Select the Add Field button to create a new field
    • Enter in a description of the field in the Field Name text box
    • Select from the drop-down menu, the method you wish the user to respond
    • Then decide whether or not the field is compulsory, where unless completed by the user, they will be unable to submit the form
    • See General Contractor FAQs - Custom Fields Explained for further details on Custom Fields.
  • Continue to add in custom fields until you satisfy your businesses requirements for plant induction forms
  • By selecting each of the Licences that are required in order to operate this Equipment, this will be putting a check in place on the Equipment Induction form to ensure only valid individuals are able to be assigned to the Equipment.
  • A picture of the equipment can be uploaded by Select Image. Note: Multiple images can be uploaded.
  • Once completed, select +Create and the Equipment will now appear in the list of Equipment Types in alphabetical order.
