The National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) is a partnership program developed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health to stimulate innovative research and improve workplace safety practices. NORA is a framework for occupational safety and health research in the nation. NORA is divided into 8 sectors. Each has a sector council that develops a national agenda based on critical issues identified in workplace safety and health. The agenda includes goals and an implementation plan for addressing the occupational safety and health issues in the sector.

There are over 7 million workers in the Transportation, Warehousing, and Utilities (TWU) industries. The Transportation sector includes industries that transport passengers and cargo; scenic and sightseeing transportation; and support activities for transportation. The Warehousing sector covers industries providing warehousing and storage of goods. The Utilities sector includes industries which provide, service, and distribute electric power, natural gas, steam supply, water supply, and sewage removal.
