NORA Public Safety Council
The Public Safety sector comprised approximately 1.8 million paid workers and 0.8 million volunteer fire fighters in 2005. These workers face risks that include infectious diseases, workplace violence, overexertion, chemicals, shift work, and psycho-social stressors.
A goal of the NORA Public Safety Council is to identify the most salient needs of this diverse sector. We seek to support the most important research, understand the most effective intervention strategies, and learn how to implement those strategies to achieve sustained improvements in workplace practice.
Join the Council as a Corresponding Member to keep informed of activities, provide input on issues to be discussed, and review draft documents. Some Corresponding Members may be asked to join workgroups on specific topics or to join as Members when openings arise. Contact the Sector Coordinator with any question or comment or to volunteer.
