SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Occupational Research Agenda 
(NORA) is a partnership program created to stimulate innovative 
research and improved workplace practices. The national agenda is 
developed and implemented through the NORA sector and cross-sector 
councils. Each council develops and maintains an agenda for its sector 
or cross-sector.
    Background: The National Occupational Research Agenda for Traumatic 
Injury Prevention (the Agenda) is intended to identify the research, 
information, and actions most urgently needed to prevent occupational 
traumatic injuries. The National Occupational Research Agenda for 
Traumatic Injury Prevention provides a vehicle for industry 
stakeholders to describe the most relevant issues, gaps, and safety and 
health needs for the cross-sector. Each NORA research agenda is meant 
to guide or promote high priority research efforts on a national level, 
conducted by various entities, including government, higher education, 
and the private sector.
    This is the first Traumatic Injury Prevention Agenda, developed for 
the third decade of NORA (2016-2026). The Agenda was developed 
considering information about injuries, the state of the science, and 
the probability that new information and approaches will make a 
difference.
    As the steward of the NORA process, NIOSH invites comments on the 
draft National Occupational Research Agenda for Traumatic Injury 
Prevention. Comments expressing support or with specific 
recommendations to improve the Agenda are requested. A copy of the 
draft Agenda is available at https://www.regulations.gov (search Docket 
Number CDC-2017-0104).
