Permits to Work > Creating/Configuring/Deleting Zones

Configure Zones

  • Log into HammerTech (if you are not already logged in), then navigate using the left hand menu > Permits > Configure Zones
  • Once on the 'Permit Zones' page > Select the '+Add New' button in the top right hand corner of the screen, this will enable you as a user to add a new 'Permit Zone' to your project / company
  • When creating a permit zone it is important to provide a 'Name' that both your internal staff and subcontractor foreman can familiarise with i.e. Drop Zone 1..2..3. and so on or Elevator Shaft 1
  • Note: HammerTech recommends an alignment between the name of your 'Permit Zones' to those illustrated on your site plans. You can view your site diagram/s by selecting the 'View Diagram' button when you are creating / modifying a Permit Zone
  • The HammerTech system allows you to associate a visual colour to each'Permit Zone' you create, this will be presented to users when viewing the digital 'Permit Board' and on the 'Permit Zone' print outs, alongside the QR Code.  Simply select colour pick (down arrow) > adjust the colour using the slider for the specific colour > once satisfied move your mouse or finger over the text 'select' > the picker will then apply your colour
  • When creating a 'Permit Zone' select whether or not the zone should be marked as an 'Exclusion' zone.  An 'Exclusion' zone will only allow a single booking to be active/scheduled at a time, where as if not selected, multiple bookings can occur in the same zone at the same time
  • The last step is selecting which 'Permit Types' you want the 'Permit Zone'to apply to by selecting the tick-box next to the required 'Permit Types'
  • Once you have completed the form, select > the 'Create' buttonthe system will then finalise the creation of your permit zone
  • Continue the above steps, to create all the 'Permit Zones' that your site requires.
