When KLINGE were on-site tyre service providers for mines, we developed TyreARM to keep our people safe. It worked! We experienced ZERO fatalities in 42 years of continuous operation at 20+ mines in 4 countries. Our focus on safety and our proactive approach to assessing and controlling the specific hazards with OTR tyre operations was key to this.

We offer this secret to our success as a service to mines and service providers globally. It is built to be repeatable, measurable and includes a library of 500 and counting questions and observations that our consultants utilise. To this day OTR tyre service remains one of the deadliest roles on a mine, but we know zero fatalities is achievable.

Custom Audit

We combine our industry standards and audit criteria with your organisation goals and guidelines. Through consultation we customise an audit to focus on the areas your teams deem critical with our experts acting as guides to construct the audit that fits you best. As TyreARM is proprietary software we can adapt to include or exclude audit criteria that we have developed for your own. Great for groups of mines or organisations that are looking to empower internal teams or attack key areas of OTR.

Deliverables: Planning meetings and post-audit meetings. Site by site summary PPT & PDF reports plus group summary reports and group presentation. Includes continuous improvement strategies and recommendations detailed by site and summary for group. Follow up online or in person meetings at 6 months from audit date. 


Mines that require frequent support can inject expertise and on-site using Hindsite and TyreARM. Clients %utilise% a connected headset on site and the KLINGE consultant connects on-demand or scheduled. Know-how when you need it not when there are flights available. We deliver services leveraging Hindsite which enables:

  • Remote site calls so our experts can see through client’s eyes at site.
  • Transparency through call & video transcripts.
  • Diversity using auto-translation to ensure knowledge is shared with all.
  • Redundancy from automatic meeting recording.

During COVID-19 most mines didn’t stop and our clients still needed to keep their tyre service teams safe. So KLINGE partnered with Hindsite to virtually attend sites that we couldn’t travel to. Remote presence technology and experience coming to the rescue. A world first.
