The National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA)
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 in 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 Mining Agenda
The NORA Mining Sector Council, http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/nora/councils/mining/, has published a revised National Mining Agenda, http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/nora/comment/agendas/mining/. The revisions meet the need for research objectives and sub-objectives in the domain of data adequacy and analysis. The document sets objectives in eight major areas that include disaster prevention, disaster response, health hazards, ventilation, work organization, systems operation and management, human factors, and surveillance. The council encourages organizations to consider these objectives, perhaps in partnership with NIOSH. For more information, contact the NORA Coordinator.
