The National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) is a partnership program to stimulate innovative research and improved workplace practices. Unveiled in 1996, NORA has become a research framework for NIOSH and the nation. Diverse parties collaborate to identify the most critical issues in workplace safety and health. Partners then work together to develop goals and objectives for addressing these needs. more...
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.
Revised National Agenda includes Wildland Fire Fighting
The NORA Public Safety Council updated the National Public Safety Agenda (http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/nora/sectors/pubsaf/agenda.html) to include goals related to wildland firefighting. Over 30 wildland firefighting stakeholders from throughout the United States identified research priorities highlighting knowledge gaps and the need for improvements in such areas as surveillance, interventions, equipment, communications, and occupational safety and health programs. Comments on the Agenda are always welcome and will be considered in future updates. Submit correspondence to email@example.com.
