The National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) is a partnership program to stimulate innovative research and improve workplace practices. Unveiled in 1996, NORA has become a research framework for guiding Occupational Safety and Health research for the nation. The NORA Manufacturing Sector Council collaborates with manufacturing stakeholders such as, employers, employees, government agencies, insurers, manufacturers, mass and social media, professional associations, regulators, researchers, trade associations, treatment providers, workers groups, etc., to identify the most critical occupational safety and health issues in manufacturing. Through partnerships the Council has developed goals, objectives and an implementation plan to address these issues. While the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is serving as the steward to move this effort forward, it is a national partnership. The NORA Manufacturing Sector Council and the University of Cincinnati, Department of Environmental Health and Education and Research Center in partnership are sponsoring this conference as a national call for action to identify and develop partnerships to improve occupational safety and health in manufacturing http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/nora/councils/manuf/pubprod.html

The goals of the conference are to:
  • Identify the greatest opportunities to reduce injuries, illnesses, hazardous exposures and fatalities in the manufacturing sector.
  • Share information about innovative research and successful partnerships.
  • Explore potential research collaborations and partnerships to improve occupational safety and health.
