Hazard is the bi-annual journal of the Victorian Injury Surveillance Unit (VISU) (formerly VISAR). Information about injuries and their prevention is disseminated through this publication. The issues reviewed in Hazard are chosen because of a combination of the severity, frequency and preventability of the injury type.
