The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is tasked with generating new knowledge in the field of occupational safety and health and transferring that knowledge into practice for the betterment of workers. In 1996,NIOSH established the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA), which identified occupational hearing loss as a priority research area. The NORA Hearing Loss Team, composed of representatives from industry, academia, labor, professional organizations, and other governmental agencies, has developed a national research agenda for the prevention of occupational hearing loss. This is Part 2 of that document, outlining research needed to address the problem through effective prevention programs.
