Lock Label Locate - NEW!

Lock Label Locate Toolkit now available!

Supporting effective drug management in veterinary facilities

All facility directors have been mailed a free Lock Label Locate Toolkit. Safety is everyone’s business in your practice, especially when it comes to managing drugs. The toolkit helps us all focus on these essential behaviours.

  • Lock - Secure all drugs by keeping them locked up
  • Label - Good inventory control through labelling on any container and to ensure it is not expired
  • Locate - This is about safe and responsible disposal

Let us all work to protect the public, animals, and your veterinary team with safe  management of drugs. If you need another toolkit or need more support, please contact the College.
