National Sector Agendas

NORA Sector Councils  have created sector agendas for the nation to guide research and research-to-practice through the decade ending April 2016. The Councils will update the National Sector Agendas as needed. Please send suggestions for improving the agendas any time. All comments sent to the NORA Coordinator will be forwarded to the relevant Council.


Requesting Feedback on the Second Decade of NORA

NIOSH is requesting feedback from its partners and the public on the second decade of the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA). The following request is posed on the website: Please describe the most significant successes and challenges of your engagement with NIOSH during the second decade of NORA (2006 to present). Go to the NIOSH Docket webpage for additional information and instructions for submitting comments.

Supplement to the National Construction Agenda

The NORA Construction Sector Council conducted a mid-decade review of the National Construction Agenda. Six of the 15 strategic goals were judged “ready for impact,” since sufficient knowledge and solutions are available for implementation by contractors and workers. Subsequently, the council outlined a road map for achieving impact in each of the six goal areas. For details, see the link to the mid-decade review supplement on the National Construction Agenda webpage.
