Health & Safety

Safe Home

Our daily mantra at KTL is "Safe Home. Everybody. Everyday."
We're committed to the safety of anyone who interacts with our business - staff and customers alike.


KTL has a comprehensive Health & Safety system overseen by Safety Assist and implemented daily by the Directors of KTL.


We continuously provide ongoing staff training, information, instruction and supervision to our team to ensure they are safe and understand any hazards.


With a fully operational workshop and engineering bay onsite we ensure that all plant, trucks and machinery are maintained to the highest standard at all times.

Work Environment

We strive to maintain a safe working environment for all of our team, whether on location, on the road, at the depot or in the office.

Continuous Improvement

Our comprehensive Health & Safety systems ensure we are continuously striving to improve the way we protect and implement our mantra "Safe Home. Everybody. Everyday."


Smarter Logistics

All our vehicles are fitted with ERoad GPS Systems for realtime fleet management. This gives us the ability to redirect any vehicle as required via the shortest route, eliminating unnecessary fuel usage, time and reducing carbon emissions.

Lighter Footprint

The majority of our fleet are Scania, who are at the forefront of engine design enabling the use of cleaner fuels. Throughout our fleet we use Castrol Vectron, a new carbon neutral diesel engine oil.

Efficient Machines

We know the importance of smart and safe transport. Our onsite workshop ensures all of our plant operates with enhanced and guaranteed performance, utilising the latest technology and products available.



We use the latest technology to provide the highest level of service. We use the ERoad GPS Tracking system to provide 24 hour realtime monitoring of all our truck units, tractor units and heavy machinery. On farm we use Precision Tracking to enable proof of placement and spread rate of product applied to farmland down to the individual paddock level.
