Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 237 / Tuesday, December 11, 2007 / Notices Employment and Training Administration Based on the new information, the Department conducted a survey of a major declining customer regarding its purchases of like or directly competitive products with plastic parts manufactured by the subject firm. The survey revealed that the major declining customer increased imports of plastic parts during the relevant period. In accordance with Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974 (26 U.S.C. 2813), as amended, the Department of Labor herein presents the results of its investigation regarding certification of eligibility to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance (ATAA) for older workers. In order for the Department to issue a certification of eligibility to apply for ATAA, the group eligibility requirements of Section 246 of the Trade Act must be met. The Department has determined in this case that the requirements of Section 246 have been met. A significant number of workers at the firm are age 50 or over and possess skills that are not easily transferable. Competitive conditions within the industry are adverse. [TA–W–61,867] Conclusion TA–W–62,478; Option One Mortgage Corporation, A Subsidiary of H and R Block, East Providence, RI The investigation revealed that criteria of Section 222(b)(2) has not been met. The workers’ firm (or subdivision) is not a supplier to or a downstream producer for a firm whose workers were certified eligible to apply for TAA. NONE I hereby certify that the aforementioned determinations were issued during the period of November 26 through November 30, 2007. Copies of these determinations are available for inspection in Room C–5311, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210 during normal business hours or will be mailed to persons who write to the above address. Dated: November 5, 2007. Ralph Dibattista, Director, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc. E7–23910 Filed 12–10–07; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 4510–FN–P DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Non-Metallic Components, Inc., Rib Lake, Notice of Revised Determination on Reconsideration pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES On November 8, 2007, the Department issued an Affirmative Determination Regarding Application on Reconsideration applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The notice was published in the Federal Register on November 16, 2007 (72 FR 64685). The previous investigation initiated on July 24, 2007, resulted in a negative determination issued on September 19, 2007, was based on the finding that imports of custom injection molded plastic parts did not contribute importantly to worker separations at the subject firm and no shift in production to countries that are Party to a Free Trade Agreements with the United States or beneficiary countries occurred. The denial notice was published in the Federal Register on October 3, 2007 (72 FR 56385). In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner provided additional information regarding the subject firm’s declining customers. VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:12 Dec 10, 2007 Jkt 214001 After careful review of the additional facts obtained on reconsideration, I conclude that increased imports of articles like or directly competitive with those produced at Non-Metallic Components, Inc., Rib Lake, Wisconsin, contributed importantly to the declines in sales or production and to the total or partial separation of workers at the subject firm. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, I make the following certification: ‘‘All workers of Non-Metallic Components, Inc., Rib Lake, Wisconsin, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after July 18, 2006, through two years from the date of this certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, and are eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.’’ Signed in Washington, DC this 30th day of November 2007.

Section 50.10 requires mine operators and mining contractors to immediately notify MSHA in the event of an accident. This immediate notification is critical to MSHA’s timely investigation and assessment of the probable cause of the accident.

The operator or contractor may not use MSHA Form 7000–1 as a report, unless the mine employs fewer than 20 miners and the occurrence involves an occupational injury not related to an accident. Section 50.20(a) requires mine operators and mining contractors to report each accident, injury, or illness to MSHA on Form 7000–1 within 10 working days after an accident or injury has occurred or an occupational illness has been diagnosed. The use of MSHA Form 7000–1 provides for uniform information gathering across the mining industry. Section 50.30(a) requires mine operators and independent contractors working on mine property to report quarterly employment and coal production to MSHA on Form 7000–2. MSHA tabulates and analyzes the information from this form along with data from MSHA Form 7000–1, Mine Accident, Injury, and Illness Report, to compute incidence and severity rates for various injury types. These rates are used to analyze trends and to assess the degree of success of the health and safety efforts of MSHA and the mining industry. MSHA tabulates and analyzes the information from MSHA Form 7000–1, E:\FR\FM\11DEN1.SGM 11DEN1
