Chicago, IL -- August 8, 2023 – Today, HammerTech, the world’s leading safety software for the construction industry, announced a new partnership with FCL Builders, LLC, a leading national design builder, placing #54 on ENR’s 2023 Top 400 Contractors list. HammerTech positions FCL to further automate its safety processes across every project and gain strategic, real-time data and safety insights to proactively mitigate region-specific hazards.
“Our vision for compliance, risk, and safety is simple - everyone goes home safely at the end of the day, and HammerTech is proving key to this vision,” said Kort Williams, CSP, CHST, Director of Safety at FCL. “HammerTech’s best in breed technology and service approach provides us with robust, project-specific safety data that empowers us to solve problems, make better decisions faster, and keep our sites safer.”
Safety has always been the bedrock of FCL’s culture and operations. HammerTech is building on this foundation. FCL began rolling out HammerTech software in late 2022 with great success. So far, 104 sites across the U.S. are successfully leveraging the platform assisting FCL Superintendents’ abilities to get ahead of issues and implement proactive safety measures nationally.
HammerTech’s daily inspection reports offer FCL crews visibility and tangible actions to ensure everyone is accountable and makes safety a habit. FCL employees readily adopted the new technology, thanks to HammerTech’s consultative rollout model and hands-on training.
“HammerTech prides itself on understanding and addressing the needs, responsibilities, and risks construction workers face. Our platform is built from the ground up to provide the necessary visibility for organizations to keep people safe, whether a safety manager is on-site or remote,” said Michael Goldstein, Chief Customer Officer, of HammerTech. “FCL has been an ideal client who maximizes HammerTech’s software safety capabilities.”
Currently, more than three million construction workers and over 400 contractors benefit from HammerTech’s comprehensive and customizable all-in-one solution, which supports over $100 billion in annual construction volume.
