Proposed Project Statement in Support of Application for Waiver of Inadmissibility under Immigration and Nationality Act (0920– 0006)—Extension—National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). primarily to collect information to establish and maintain records of waiver applicants in order to notify the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services when terms, conditions and controls imposed by waiver are not met. CDC is requesting approval from OMB to collect this data for another three years. Based on a review of the number of waivers processed by CDC over the last three years, CDC does not request a change in the amount of burden. The annualized burden for this data collection is 100 hours. Respondents must mail these documents to CDC, and this entails an additional cost. CDC estimates that respondents will spend a maximum of $15 per year on postal fees, for a total of $3,000 annually. Background and Brief Description Section 212(a)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act states that aliens with specific health related conditions are ineligible for admission into the United States. The Attorney General may waive application of this inadmissibility on health-related grounds if an application for waiver is filed and approved by the consular office considering the application for visa.

Background and Brief Description As mandated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Pub. L. 91–596), the mission of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is to conduct research and investigations on work-related disease and injury and to disseminate information for preventing identified workplace hazards (Sections 20(a)(1) and (d), Attachment 1). Organizations work to cultivate wellbeing to improve employee safety and health. Well-being can contribute to physical health and conversely, its absence may foster disease and mental disorders. Yet, in order to invest in employee well-being it is necessary to define and measure it. The Total Worker Health® (TWH) Program within the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has made worker well-being a key aspect of its mission. TWH is defined as policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-related safety and health hazards with promotion of injury and illness prevention efforts to advance worker well-being. Through an E:\FR\FM\20APN1.SGM 20APN1 18649 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 75 / Thursday, April 20, 2017 / Notices integrated approach, its end goal is not only the lack of disease or injury, but also a culture of safety and health and an enhancement of overall well-being (NIOSH, 2016). Measuring worker wellbeing is the first step towards improving workplace policies, programs, and practices to promote prevention of disease and injury The TWH Program’s interest in the concept of worker well-being is consistent with other efforts across the nation. Well-being is now a common feature across the public health literature, as it reflects the expanded goals to create the conditions for health and foster a culture of health rather than to simply treat injury and illness (EASHW, 2013; City of Santa Monica, 2016; OECD, 2016). However, while the concept of well-being has been considered by many disciplines throughout history, there has been no consistent definition or consensus around measurement and application. The ambiguity around this very broad concept creates challenges for any program or initiative that aims to advance the well-being of individual workers or workplaces. Through a comprehensive and multidisciplinary literature review, this project developed a conceptual framework of worker wellbeing that provided the basis for development of a worker well-being survey instrument. For this study, data is being collected from a nationwide online panel of employed adults. The survey includes questions on five domains of worker well-being including: Worker evaluation and experiences with work, workplace physical environment and safety climate, organizational policies and culture, worker health status, and experiences outside of work (external context). The instrument will be programmed into a web-based survey that will be administered online to an existing nationwide survey panel (KnowledgePanel®) hosted by our vendor, GfK. The field period for data collection will be about 3 weeks. The provided instrument is intended to offer a comprehensive assessment and measurement of worker well-being across multiple domains; however the instrument itself has not yet been rigorously tested on its psychometric properties. Such work is necessary to ensure that the survey is considered a validated instrument that can be used to collect accurate and reliable data on worker well-being. The total estimated burden hours is 342. There are no costs to the respondent other than their time.

Background and Brief Description Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a substantial public health problem in the United States. Over a third of women and over a quarter of men have experienced rape, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner (Black, et al., 2011). Recognition of the importance and prevalence of this issue has fueled research to examine the causes, correlates, and outcomes of IPV over the past several decades. The proposed data collection will be used to identify classes of IPV perpetrators based on shared characteristics such as their personal attributes, risk factors, relationship characteristics, and characteristics of the violence they commit. The study will collect information to ascertain which factors or groups of factors may influence violence perpetration that occurs within adult intimate partner relationships.

Proposed Project

    Measuring Well-Being for Total Worker Health--New--National 
Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    As mandated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Pub. 
L. 91-596), the mission of the National Institute for Occupational 
Safety and Health (NIOSH) is to conduct research and investigations on 
work-related disease and injury and to disseminate information for

Attachment 1).

conversely, its absence may foster disease and mental disorders. Yet, 
in order to invest in employee well-being it is necessary to define and

National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has made 
worker well-being a key aspect of its mission. TWH is defined as 
policies, programs, and practices that integrate protection from work-

injury, but also a culture of safety and health and an enhancement of 
overall well-being (NIOSH, 2016). Measuring worker well-being is the 
first step towards improving workplace policies, programs, and 
practices to promote prevention of disease and injury
    The TWH Program's interest in the concept of worker well-being is
