“A major point of difference with Kennards is our emphasis on safety. We ensure our entire range is extremely well maintained, fully calibrated and compliant so it’s presented fit-to-use every single time it’s delivered to site. Another example of our commitment to safety for all staff, customers and users of our equipment is our association with Plant Assessor.
We initially called on Plant Assessor to assist us with ensuring we had all the relevant safety related information for each piece of equipment. Plant Assessor assessed each item for us and identified any gaps in our documentation. They photographed and catalogued all relevant items and ensured anything that was unique or customised received a specific assessment. Through this work, Kennards implemented a system that ensures that any operator has access to all relevant safety and technical information at all times.
I was very impressed with the process they used to assess each piece of equipment. Their team was extremely knowledgeable, efficient and thorough. We are pleased to have found such a well credentialed business such as Plant Assessor to assist us with our safety related work and to ensure we continue to provide the best possible product to our clients.”
Alex Eiserman, Safety Manager – Rail Division – Kennards
“We considered the option of doing our own plant safety inspections however, we decided this was not the best option for us, as it may have been perceived as a conflict of interest if we were identifying safety deficiencies in vendor equipment. We were also unsure of our ability to develop and maintain suitable knowledge of safety legislation and Australia Standards.
We knew the guys from Plant Assessor as we had worked with them before, and they had illustrated both superior industry knowledge and customer service. Once they showed us their Plant Assessor online inspection system, we were convinced that all plant safety inspections would be of the highest quality. It’s been a great business relationship since the very beginning and our partnership now spans almost 10 years.”

Clearing sales are often a very emotional event, so vendors try and get it done with a minimum of fuss and as quickly and cost effectively as possible. Therefore, issues such as third-party safety are often missed or considered unimportant.
Although clearing sales can be difficult on everyone, the last thing anyone wants is a legal issue after the event so it’s a very important subject. In recent years more and more stock and station agents are starting to see the benefits of involving Plant Assessor to protect their clients and their own business.
Plant Assessor gives us the security of being covered with risk assessments – this is especially relevant for the vendors but is also important for the Landmark brand. In a world of frequent litigation, we offer complete security for the vendors and for Landmark. It’s a modest investment for a something that ensures everyone is 100 per cent legally covered in the unfortunate event that there is an incident involving a piece of equipment sold at the clearing sale.
For our business, using Plant Assessor is mandatory when we plan and conduct clearing sales. The cost benefit is obvious. It’s an efficient and affordable process that protects all parties. And it saves us time and ensures a smooth workflow on the day. Why wouldn’t you use it?”

“A local machinery business sold a second-hand header which was later involved in major accident and the owners of that business were put through the ringer so we immediately started paying more attention to the process of ensuring machinery had all the right safety information before it left one of our clearing sales. We were acutely aware that we were responsible for ensuring it was safe to sell the equipment, but we weren’t exactly sure how to make it happen. Then I found Plant Assessor.
Many of our farming clients don’t realise that the risk is on the vendor and we are the vendor’s agent so it’s our job to ensure everything is in order. I still meet others in our industry who don’t know who’s responsible for what and certainly aren’t aware of the potential risks to their business. I tell them about Plant Assessor every time. It’s a no-brainer to get them involved with anything relating to selling farm equipment. I recommend them without hesitation.
You hire a plumber to do the plumbing and a sparky to do electrical work so why wouldn’t you use an expert in machinery safety to ensure all plant and equipment has all the right information to allow safe use when it leaves the property.
Legal issues can cost you – win or lose – plus the insurance companies expect us to follow best practice so using a system like Plant Assessor not only reduces risk but also reduces our premiums.
They send one of their team to the property a week before the event and we make sure all machines are checked and paperwork is ready for the day. The inspection and assessment process is methodical and simple to follow and the it leaves an obvious paper trail. And because inspections are done in numerical order it’s easy to keep track of proceeding the on the day of the clearing sale.”

“Sometimes it really pays to get advice and guidance from experts. We made the decision to invest some time and effort into engaging the Field Service Team from Plant Assessor and then ensuring we knew how to manage the safety related aspects of our fleet and our tools on a day-to-day basis and it really has paid dividends. The entire department has a new-found confidence in how we approach our work.
A representative of Plant Assessor arrived on site to meet with our team and conduct inspections and he quickly proved to everyone that he knew what he was talking about. He gained their respect with his comprehensive knowledge of the machines and any and all potential safety issues. He was very hands-on and gave us clear instructions about what we need to do to ensure the machines remained compliant and safe to use.
We were that impressed with the systems they have put in place and the process they follow that we now include a clause in our tenders clarifying our preference that suppliers provide a risk assessment from Plant Assessor with the equipment we purchase from them.
Carrathool Shire Council is pleased to serve as a reference for Plant Assessor, to any prospective business that is considering their platform but especially to other local council and government departments as they understand the unique nature of our sector. We are looking forward to a long and healthy business partnership with Plant Assessor.”
