Abstract
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) used a decade-long National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) process to involve stakeholders in identifying and implementing targeted research. The first NORA effort resulted in 21 cross-cutting topics. NIOSH is taking a "sector approach" for the second decade of NORA (2006-2016) and Construction is one of eight sectors developing a sector-specific national research agenda. This presentation will describe the multi-stakeholder NORA "Construction Sector Council" used to identify ten top problems, the process used to discuss candidate topics, and the resulting list of topics. It will also describe the use of a Construction Program Logic Model to guide NIOSH efforts in making an impact on end outcomes via research. Lastly, the presentation will describe the current status of efforts to develop strategic goals for each of the top problem topics including the current version of the draft goals. Each strategic goal includes an overall goal related to improved outcomes, performance measures to track progress toward outcomes, along with several intermediate research and research to practice goals. Taken together, the various strategic goals will comprise the National Construction Agenda.
