Members of the NORA Public Safety Council

The Council has two co-chairs, a NIOSH Public Safety Program Coordinator and a stakeholder representative. The NIOSH Program Manager and other NIOSH Public Safety Program leaders are Council Members and facilitate the work of the Council. Members attend meetings and are the core of the group. Corresponding members are kept informed of Council activities, have opportunities to provide input on topics to be discussed, and may join workgroups. Contact the NIOSH Council Co-Chair or the NORA Coordinator with questions or comments or to volunteer.
