National Services Sector Agenda

An updated agenda is available at

The NORA Services Sector Council revised the National Services Agenda to add goals related to the Hair and Nail Salons industry. The Council also marked some goals “accomplished” after conducting a literature review and considering progress and remaining gaps. The National Services Agenda consists of eighteen strategic goals across a number of services industries. Two of the strategic goals on musculoskeletal disorders and surveillance apply to all services industries. The council thinks these are important services topics where research combined with industry efforts are needed to reduce occupational illnesses, injuries, and fatalities.
