The objective of this project is to develop a selfadministered, paper and pencil risk assessment tool for the development of low back disorders specifically directed towards use in the mining industry. Many current methods of assessing the risk of low back disorders do not address stressors that are relatively unique to the mining environment, including the restricted vertical spaces to assess the degree of risk for the job and the individual. The tool will be useful in both prioritizing jobs that need interventions to reduce low back disorder risk, and in evaluating the effectiveness of interventions through tool administration before and after the implementation of an intervention. There will be no cost to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 80. in many coal mines that require workers to adopt stooping or kneeling postures for extended periods of their workday. The low back exposure assessment tool for mining will assess various occupational exposures associated with development of back disorders in the literature (postural demands, lifting, whole body vibration exposure, individual and psychosocial issues), as well as specific mining stressors and will develop a score that will be used ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Respondents Number of respondents Number of responses per respondent Average burden per response (in hours) Surface and Underground Miners ............................................................................................... 320 miners 1 15/60 Dated: March 5, 2007.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a public workshop entitled: Immune Globulins for Primary Immune Deficiency Diseases: Antibody Specificity, Potency and Testing. The purpose of the public workshop is to discuss approaches to identify the most relevant antibody specificities in Immune Globulins for the prevention of infections in patients with primary immune deficiency diseases (PIDD), and current and potential potency tests for Immune Globulins. The public workshop will also include a discussion about the declining measles antibody levels in U.S. licensed Immune Globulins and the potential clinical impact on patients with PIDD. The public workshop sponsors are FDA, the Immune Deficiency Foundation, and the Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association. Date and Time: The public workshop will be held on April 25, 2007, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and April 26, 2007, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Location: The public workshop will be held at the Lister Hill Center Auditorium, Building 38A, National Institutes of Health, 8800 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20894.
