What To Treat Tanalised Timber With?

I'm hoping someone can give me a conclusive answer to this query please...

I've just had some tanalised timber reproduction sleepers installed in my UK garden where there's a couple of steps up from the patio to the lawn. They've come from the same timber yard who supplied all my fence panels about 4yrs ago. With the fence panels, I let them weather for a year or so, then treated with a few coats of light coloured 5yr Duckback, and they're as good as new. But with the sleepers, I want to use a clear treatment rather than a coloured one.

My first thought was yacht varnish because I used to use that on the Morris Minor Traveller woodwork, but after searching for options on t'internet, I can't decide between total wood preservative or decking oil, or any other product stacked with UV filters.

My requirements are:
preferably clear
must be non toxic as there are animals frequenting the garden.

Thank you!
