Our mission

The Monash Injury Research Institute (MIRI) is Australia's largest and most respected injury prevention research organisation. Our research, consultancy, training and scientific expertise include safety in all modes of transport, in the workplace, in the community and in the home.

Our goal is simple but profound: to prevent injury, save lives, and build futures.

We have already made Australia and Australians safer. Now, we are harnessing Monash University's global perspective and presence on four continents to help meet the challenges of public health around the world.

We strive to become an international solution to the problems of health and safety.

This ambition is reflected in our mission statement:

"Through high-standard research and independent recommendations, to challenge and support citizens, governments, industries and other organisations to eliminate serious health losses due to injury from all causes."

This statement guides everything we do across the breadth of our research, consultancy, public education and training.

It means we make our high-quality research available to governments, private business and the community so they can make better, safer decisions.

It means we offer leadership in advocating for new standards of injury prevention and treatment that can be adopted across communities.

And, it means we take action to remedy the problems we see, allowing us to make a difference in people's lives.
