About NORA's EH&S Forum

When a company joins the Association, they confirm their commitment to NORA’s Guiding Principles. The first guiding principle is: “We make health, safety, and environmental considerations a top priority in our planning for all
existing and new facilities, processes, products, and services.”

The association will host its 5th annual NORA Environmental, Health & Safety (EH&S) Forum on Tuesday, February 27, 2018 at the Sheraton Austin Hotel in Austin, Texas prior to the start of the Winter Meeting. This forum is tailored for those whose roles within their companies significantly relate to EH&S issues.You may register for the EH&S Forum as a standalone event for just $159, or combine it with the NORA Winter Meeting Registration for $369.
