Proposed Project Assessment of Ill Worker Policies Study—NEW—National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is requesting a new three-year Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) clearance to conduct information collection entitled ‘‘Assessment of Ill Worker Policies Study.’’ CDC’s National Center for Environmental Health implements the Environmental Health Specialists Network (EHS-Net) program, which conducts studies to identify and understand environmental factors associated with foodborne illness outbreaks and other food safety issues (e.g., ill food workers). These data are essential to environmental public health regulators’ efforts to respond more effectively to and prevent future outbreaks by identifying underlying causes and intervention strategies. EHS-Net is a collaborative project of the CDC, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), industry partners and eight state and local public health departments (California, Minnesota, New York, New York City, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Southern Nevada Health District, and Harris County Texas). CDC funds these state and local health departments, which enables them to collaborate on study design, collect study data, and coanalyze study data with CDC. The federal partners also provide funding This data collection request aims to address data gap by surveying restaurants on their ill worker polices through a quasi-experimental nonequivalent group pre- post-test design, with implementation of an educational intervention to randomly selected independently-owned restaurants in the catchment area. The assessments at each site visit will be the same in both the intervention and control restaurants. Data collection will consist of a manager interview to understand the current practices in the restaurant, a facility observation to observe the practices in place to prevent contamination from an employee, and a food worker survey to obtain their beliefs towards the current policies. The educational intervention planned in the study is designed to encourage restaurants to develop ill worker management policies that have provisions to address the reasons that workers have reported working while ill. The efficacy of the intervention will be measured using a pre- post-test nonequivalent groups design. If the intervention is resulting in having restaurants enhance their ill worker management policies; at the follow up visit, the intervention will be provided to the control restaurants and an additional follow up visit will occur in these restaurants. For the purpose of the burden hours, eight sites will collect data in 40 restaurants. The total estimated annualized burden hours averaged over the three-year study period are 200 burden hours. Participation in this proposed information collection is completely voluntary. There is no cost to respondents other than their time. and input into study design and data analysis. Ill food service workers have long been identified as a source of contamination in restaurants. The 2013 FDA Food Code specifically addresses food worker health under section 2–201. However, even with these regulations in place food workers continue to serve as a source for disease transmission (e.g., Norovirus). The FDA Food Code calls for excluding food workers from working in the restaurant that are diagnosed with an illness or have symptoms. Research has indicated that many food service workers have reported working while sick and that the reasons provided are multi-faceted. To assist in reducing this national disease burden, it is critical to develop and implement successful interventions that address the reasons that restaurant workers continue to work while sick. The goals of this study include: (1) Assess the knowledge, attitudes and practices of both restaurant managers and workers to working while ill; and (2) Assess whether an educational intervention will result in restaurants enhancing their ill worker management procedures. The data from this study can be used to further develop educational materials, trainings, and tools that are targeted towards improving retail food establishment ill worker management practices. This improvement can contribute to a decrease in the number of food service workers that continue to work while ill in retail food establishments and a subsequent decrease in the contamination of foodstuffs from the ill worker.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: CDC is dedicated to protecting health and promoting quality of life through the prevention and control of disease, injury, and disability. NIOSH, one of CDC’s Centers, Institute, and Offices, was established by the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. NIOSH plans, directs, and coordinates a national program to develop and establish recommended occupational safety and health standards; conduct research and training; provide technical assistance; and perform related activities to assure safe and healthful working conditions for every working person in the United States. Three NIOSH research facilities—the Robert A. Taft Campus, Taft North Campus, and the Alice Hamilton Laboratory Campus—currently are located in Cincinnati, Ohio. Even with multiple renovations through the years, these facilities no longer meet the needs of modern research. The facilities’ deficiencies adversely affect NIOSH’s ability to conduct its important Cincinnati-based occupational safety and health research. The facilities’ outdated designs create health and safety challenges for NIOSH laboratory employees and administrative staff. It is not possible to renovate the facilities located on the three campuses to meet current standards and requirements. Additionally, the current distribution of NIOSH activities across separate campuses results in inefficiencies in scientific collaboration and the duplication of operational support activities. Therefore, CDC is proposing to relocate and consolidate its Cincinnati-based functions and personnel (approximately 550 employees) currently housed at the three existing campuses to a new, consolidated campus in Cincinnati. Potential locations for the proposed new campus were identified through a comprehensive site selection process conducted by GSA on behalf of CDC. In June 2016, GSA issued a Request for Expressions of Interest (REOI) seeking potential sites capable of accommodating the proposed new E:\FR\FM\14JYN1.SGM 14JYN1

    Assessment of Ill Worker Policies Study--NEW--National Center for 
Environmental Health (NCEH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 
(CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is requesting 
a new three-year Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) clearance to conduct 
information collection entitled ``Assessment of Ill Worker Policies 
Study.''
    CDC's National Center for Environmental Health implements the 
Environmental Health Specialists Network (EHS-Net) program, which 
conducts studies to identify and understand environmental factors 
associated with foodborne illness outbreaks and other food safety 
issues (e.g., ill food workers). These data are essential to 
environmental public health regulators' efforts to respond more 
effectively to and prevent future outbreaks by identifying underlying 
causes and intervention strategies.
    EHS-Net is a collaborative project of the CDC, the U.S. Food and 
Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), 
industry partners and eight state and local public health departments 
(California, Minnesota, New York, New York City, Rhode Island, 
Tennessee, Southern Nevada Health District, and Harris County Texas). 
CDC funds these state and local health departments, which enables them 
to collaborate on study design, collect study data, and co-analyze 
study data with CDC. The federal partners also provide funding and 
input into study design and data analysis.
    Ill food service workers have long been identified as a source of 
contamination in restaurants. The 2013 FDA Food Code specifically 
addresses food worker health under section 2-201. However, even with 
these regulations in place food workers continue to serve as a source 
for disease transmission (e.g., Norovirus).
    The FDA Food Code calls for excluding food workers from working in 
the restaurant that are diagnosed with an illness or have symptoms. 
Research has indicated that many food service workers have reported 
working while sick and that the reasons provided are multi-faceted. To 
assist in reducing this national disease burden, it is critical to 
develop and implement successful interventions that address the reasons 
that restaurant workers continue to work while sick. The goals of this 
study include:
    (1) Assess the knowledge, attitudes and practices of both 
restaurant managers and workers to working while ill; and
    (2) Assess whether an educational intervention will result in 
restaurants enhancing their ill worker management procedures.
    The data from this study can be used to further develop educational 
materials, trainings, and tools that are targeted towards improving 
retail food establishment ill worker management practices. This 
improvement can contribute to a decrease in the number of food service 
workers that continue to work while ill in retail food establishments 
and a subsequent decrease in the contamination of foodstuffs from the 
ill worker.
    This data collection request aims to address data gap by surveying 
restaurants on their ill worker polices through a quasi-experimental 
non-equivalent group pre- post-test design, with implementation of an 
educational intervention to randomly selected independently-owned 
restaurants in the catchment area. The assessments at each site visit 
will be the same in both the intervention and control restaurants. Data 
collection will consist of a manager interview to understand the 
current practices in the restaurant, a facility observation to observe 
the practices in place to prevent contamination from an employee, and a

in 40 restaurants. The total estimated annualized burden hours averaged 
over the three-year study period are 200 burden hours. Participation in 
this proposed information collection is completely voluntary. There is
