JHA > Creating a JHA 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 > JHA > Create JHA.
  • Select > Provided By and choose from the list of Personnel. Note: The Personnel list will only show Oriented Personnel or the Primary Contact. Use ‘Other’ for non-Oriented non-Primary Contact Personnel 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 uploaded JHA document. The 'Activity Name' is a mandatory field and must be entered before submitting the JHA.
  • Once these fields have been completed upload a scanned or PDF copy of the JHA Select > Choose File. (10MB File Size Limit)
  • A JHA that is considered to be high risk can be flagged in the system select the High Risk tick-box.

  • When capturing Chemical Hazard (SDS) within the JHA, Select the ‘+Add SDS’ button and choose whether you want to associate the JHA 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 JHA by selecting  ‘+Add SDS’ again
  • Any additional comments / notes can be added in Comments > Employer Notes.


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


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