The National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) is a partnership program to promote innovative research and improve workplace practices. Unveiled in 1996, NORA is a framework for guiding occupational safety and health research throughout the nation. NORA stakeholders collaborate to identify critical workplace issues in industry sectors. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) convened a number of these partners to develop the National Services Agenda which includes safety and health goals for Primary and Secondary Education. Groups such as school employees, school boards, professional organizations, and government agencies can build partnerships to implement these goals and help ensure that schools are safe for all employees as well as students.
