SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, 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 (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 accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) 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). The OSH Act also requires that OSHA obtain such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). Paragraphs (b)(1), (b)(2), (c)(1), (c)(2), and (c)(4) contain the paperwork requirements of the Standard. Under paragraph (b)(1) of the Standard, employers must develop and maintain an organizational statement that establishes the: Existence of a fire brigade; the basic organizational structure of the brigade; type, amount, and frequency of training provided to brigade members; expected number of E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1 pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 224 / Wednesday, November 21, 2007 / Notices members in the brigade; and functions that the brigade is to perform. This paragraph also specifies that the organizational statement must be available for review by employees, their designated representatives, and OSHA compliance officers. The organizational statement delineates the functions performed by the brigade members and, therefore, determines the level of training and type of personal protective equipment (PPE) necessary for these members to perform their assigned functions safely. Making the statement available to employees, their designated representatives, and OSHA compliance officers ensures that the elements of the statement are consistent with the functions performed by the brigade members and the occupational hazards they experience, and that employers are providing training and PPE appropriate to these functions and hazards. To permit an employee with known heart disease, epilepsy, or emphysema to participate in fire-brigade emergency activities, paragraph (b)(2) of the Standard requires employers to obtain a physician’s certificate of the employee’s fitness to do so. This provision provides employers with a direct and efficient means of ascertaining whether or not they can safely expose employees with these medical conditions to the hazards of fire-fighting operations. Paragraph (c)(1) of the Standard requires employers to provide training and education for fire-brigade members commensurate with the duties and functions they perform, with brigade leaders and training instructors receiving more comprehensive training and education than employers provide to the general membership. Under paragraph (c)(2) of the Standard, employers must conduct training and education frequently enough, but at least annually, to assure that brigade members are able to perform their assigned duties and functions satisfactorily and safely; employers must provide brigade members who perform interior structural fire fighting with educational and training sessions at least quarterly. In addition, paragraph (c)(4) specifies that employers must: Inform brigade members about special hazards such as storage and use of flammable liquids and gases, toxic chemicals, radioactive sources, and water-reactive substances that may be present during fires and other emergencies; advise brigade members of changes in the special hazards; and develop written procedures that describe the actions brigade members must take when special hazards are present, and make these procedures available in the education and training VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:56 Nov 20, 2007 Jkt 214001 program and for review by the brigade members. Providing appropriate training to brigade members at the specified frequencies, informing them about special hazards, developing written procedures on how to respond to special hazards, and making these procedures available for training purposes and review by the members enables them to use operational procedures and equipment in a safe manner to avoid or control dangerous exposures to fire related hazards. Therefore, the training and information requirements specified by paragraphs (c)(1), (c)(2), and (c)(4) of the Standard prevent serious injuries and death among members of fire brigades. 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 functions, including whether the information is useful; • The accuracy of OSHA’s estimate of the burden (time and costs) of the information collection requirements, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • The quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and • Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply; for example, by using automated or other technological information collection and transmission techniques. III. Proposed Actions OSHA is requesting that OMB extend its approval of the information collection requirements contained in the Standard on Fire Brigades (29 CFR 1910.156). The Agency is requesting an adjustment decrease from 6,042 hours to 5,048 hours for a total decrease of 994 hours. The decrease is a result of updated data estimating that the total number of establishments requiring new or revised organizational statements has declined from 2,797 to 2,337; and that the number of fire brigade members has declined from 559,390 to 467,330. The Agency will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice and will include this summary in the request to OMB. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Standard on Fire Brigades (29 CFR 1910.156). OMB Number: 1218–0075. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Number of Respondents: 7,010. Frequency: On occasion. PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 65609 Average Time Per Response: Varies from 5 minutes (.05 hour) to obtain a physician’s certificate to 2 hours to develop or revise an organizational plan.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce 
paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, 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 (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 accurate. The 
Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 
et seq.) 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). The OSH Act also requires 
that OSHA obtain such information with minimum burden upon employers, 
especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the 
maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining 
information (29 U.S.C. 657).
    Paragraphs (b)(1), (b)(2), (c)(1), (c)(2), and (c)(4) contain the 
paperwork requirements of the Standard.
    Under paragraph (b)(1) of the Standard, employers must develop and 
maintain an organizational statement that establishes the: Existence of 
a fire brigade; the basic organizational structure of the brigade; 
type, amount, and frequency of training provided to brigade members; 
expected number of

[[Page 65609]]

members in the brigade; and functions that the brigade is to perform. 
This paragraph also specifies that the organizational statement must be 
available for review by employees, their designated representatives, 
and OSHA compliance officers. The organizational statement delineates 
the functions performed by the brigade members and, therefore, 
determines the level of training and type of personal protective 
equipment (PPE) necessary for these members to perform their assigned 
functions safely. Making the statement available to employees, their 
designated representatives, and OSHA compliance officers ensures that 
the elements of the statement are consistent with the functions 
performed by the brigade members and the occupational hazards they 
experience, and that employers are providing training and PPE 
appropriate to these functions and hazards.
    To permit an employee with known heart disease, epilepsy, or 
emphysema to participate in fire-brigade emergency activities, 
paragraph (b)(2) of the Standard requires employers to obtain a 
physician's certificate of the employee's fitness to do so. This 
provision provides employers with a direct and efficient means of 
ascertaining whether or not they can safely expose employees with these 
medical conditions to the hazards of fire-fighting operations.
    Paragraph (c)(1) of the Standard requires employers to provide 
training and education for fire-brigade members commensurate with the 
duties and functions they perform, with brigade leaders and training 
instructors receiving more comprehensive training and education than 
employers provide to the general membership. Under paragraph (c)(2) of 
the Standard, employers must conduct training and education frequently 
enough, but at least annually, to assure that brigade members are able 
to perform their assigned duties and functions satisfactorily and 
safely; employers must provide brigade members who perform interior 
structural fire fighting with educational and training sessions at 
least quarterly. In addition, paragraph (c)(4) specifies that employers 
must: Inform brigade members about special hazards such as storage and 
use of flammable liquids and gases, toxic chemicals, radioactive 
sources, and water-reactive substances that may be present during fires 
and other emergencies; advise brigade members of changes in the special 
hazards; and develop written procedures that describe the actions 
brigade members must take when special hazards are present, and make 
these procedures available in the education and training program and 
for review by the brigade members.
    Providing appropriate training to brigade members at the specified 
frequencies, informing them about special hazards, developing written 
procedures on how to respond to special hazards, and making these 
procedures available for training purposes and review by the members 
enables them to use operational procedures and equipment in a safe 
manner to avoid or control dangerous exposures to fire related hazards. 
Therefore, the training and information requirements specified by 
paragraphs (c)(1), (c)(2), and (c)(4) of the Standard prevent serious 
injuries and death among members of fire brigades.

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 functions, 
including whether the information is useful;
     The accuracy of OSHA's estimate of the burden (time and 
costs) of the information collection requirements, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     The quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply; 
for example, by using automated or other technological information 
collection and transmission techniques.

III. Proposed Actions

    OSHA is requesting that OMB extend its approval of the information 
collection requirements contained in the Standard on Fire Brigades (29 
CFR 1910.156). The Agency is requesting an adjustment decrease from 
6,042 hours to 5,048 hours for a total decrease of 994 hours. The 
decrease is a result of updated data estimating that the total number 
of establishments requiring new or revised organizational statements 
has declined from 2,797 to 2,337; and that the number of fire brigade 
members has declined from 559,390 to 467,330. The Agency will summarize 
the comments submitted in response to this notice and will include this 
summary in the request to OMB.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Standard on Fire Brigades (29 CFR 1910.156).
    OMB Number: 1218-0075.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit.
    Number of Respondents: 7,010.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Average Time Per Response: Varies from 5 minutes (.05 hour) to 
obtain a physician's certificate to 2 hours to develop or revise an 
organizational plan.
    Estimated Total Burden Hours: 5,048.
    Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $0.
