NIOSH Reports on National Occupational Research Agenda
NORA is a partnership program to stimulate innovative research and improved practices. Participation is broad, including universities, large and small businesses, professional societies, government agencies, and worker organizations.
The focus of NORA from 2006-2016 was on moving research into practice in the workplace, with an emphasis around ten industry sectors. The report highlights the work done in improving the health, safety, and wellbeing of the U.S. workforce and concludes by discussing the results of partnership and research-to-practice activities during the decade.
“As we continue moving forward into the third decade of NORA, it is important to reflect on the progress we have made through the efforts of NIOSH researchers and our partners,” said NIOSH Director John Howard, M.D. “With this report, we have a clear picture of the value of bringing together groups that have an interest in occupational safety and health and the impact we can have when we work together on shared goals.”
