SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burdens, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information collection requirements in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA–95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is correct. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of the 1970 (the Act) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657 et seq.). The OSPP allows OSHA to enter into an extended, voluntary, cooperative relationship with groups of employers, employees, and representatives (sometimes including other stakeholders, and sometimes involving only one employer) to encourage, assist and recognize their efforts to eliminate serious hazards and achieve a high level of worker safety and health that goes beyond what historically has been achieved through traditional enforcement methods. Each OSHA Strategic Partnership (OSP) determines which information will be needed, determining the best collection method, and clarifying how the information will be used. At a minimum, each OSP must identify baseline illness and injury data corresponding to all summary line items on the OSHA 200/300 logs, and must PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71173 track changes at either the worksite level or participant-aggregate level. An OSP may also include other measures of success, such as training activity, self inspections, and/or workers’ compensation data. In this regard, the information collection requirements for the OSPP is used by the Agency to gauge the effectiveness of its programs, identify needed improvements, and ensure that its resources are being used to good and effective purposes. II. Special Issues for Comment OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues: • Whether the proposed information collection requirements are necessary for the proper performance of the Agency’s function, including whether the information is useful; • The accuracy of OSHA’s estimate of the burden (time and costs) for the information collection requirements, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • The quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; • Ways to minimize the burden on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. III. Proposed Actions OSHA is requesting that OMB extend the approval of the collection of information (paperwork) requirements outlined by the Strategic Partnership Program. In addition, the Agency proposes to use a blanket approval, eliminating the need for the Agency to submit the collection of information requirements for each individual partnership to OMB for approval. The Agency also proposes to increase the existing burden hours estimates as a result of the increasing the number of partnerships. OSHA will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice, and will include this summary in its request to OMB to extend the approval of the collection of information requirements. Type of Review: Extension of currently approved information collection requirements. Title: OSHA Strategic Partnership Program for Worker Safety and Health (OSPP). OMB Number: 1218–0244. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits; not-for-profit institutions; Federal government; State, local or tribal governments. E:\FR\FM\25NON1.SGM 25NON1
