Home and community

Since the 1980s, Monash has recognised the need to bring the rigours of scientific analysis and research into our domestic and recreational settings to aid the prevention of serious injury.

More Victorians die from injuries suffered in home, sport and leisure settings each year than do on our states roads. And we are nearly four times more likely to be admitted to hospital for injuries sustained in home and sports activities than for transport related incidents - in fact, more than 37,000 Victorians, on average, require hospital admission each year because of injuries they suffered while at home or at play.
