The functions of the NoRA OSH standards search tool available at https://nora.kan-praxis.de/en have been enhanced. The database, which is updated monthly and contains bibliographic data and information on over 10,000 standards relevant to occupational safety and health, has been redesigned and now meets the requirements for accessible website design.
NoRA offers functions for conducting searches of standards according to hazards or areas of applications (subjects). The hit list also contains the tables of contents and abstracts of the standards. ErgoNora provides additional support specifically for searches for standards in the sphere of ergonomics.
Subscribe (free of charge) to the NoRA ticker to receive a monthly overview of standards that have recently been published, revised or withdrawn or that are at the public inquiry stage. The overview is customized to your particular areas of work. In the course of the revision, the ticker has now also been made available in English.

The question of what topics should be standardized at all is reflected in the current topic of community face coverings.
