Proposed Project NIOSH Customer Satisfaction Survey—Reinstatement—National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Background and brief description: The mission of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is to promote safety and health at work for all people through research and prevention. The Occupational Safety and Health Act, Public Law 91– 596 (section 20[a] [1]) authorizes the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) to conduct research to advance the health and safety of workers. NIOSH conducted a baseline survey in 2003 to assess customer satisfaction with NIOSH communication products, services, and methods of dissemination [OMB no. 0920–0544 expired 03/31/2003]. The baseline survey established an initial benchmark for gauging the effectiveness of NIOSH’s communication products, outreach services, and identified areas for improvement. NIOSH is conducting a follow-up Customer Satisfaction Survey of occupational safety and health professionals. A mail survey is planned with an option that will allow respondents to complete the survey electronically. The current survey is a 5year follow-up designed to enable NIOSH to determine the current level of customer satisfaction and identify changes that have occurred in the intervening years.

(2) To what extent has NIOSH been successful in distributing its communication products to its primary and traditional audience? (3) To what extent, and in what ways, have NIOSH communication products influenced workplace safety and health program policies and practices, or resolved other related issues? (4) What improvements could be made in the nature of NIOSH communication products and/or their manner of delivery that could enhance their use and benefits? (5) What is the reach and perceived importance of NIOSH outreach initiatives? The survey will be directed to the community of occupational safety and health professionals, as this audience represents the primary and traditional customer base for NIOSH information materials. For this purpose four major associations identified with occupational safety and health matters have indicated their willingness to partner with NIOSH on this follow-up survey, as they did on the baseline. These are the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM), the American Association of Occupational Health Nurses (AAOHN), and the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE).

Proposed Project Indicators of the Performance of Local, State, Territorial, and Tribal Education Agencies in HIV Prevention, Coordinated School Health Program, and Asthma Management Activities for Adolescent and School Health Programs—Reinstatement—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:33 Mar 21, 2008 Jkt 214001 Customer Customer Customer Customer Customer Customer Satisfaction Satisfaction Satisfaction Satisfaction Satisfaction Satisfaction Background and Brief Description The proposed project is an annual Web-based questionnaire to assess programmatic activities among local education agencies (LEA) and state, territorial, and tribal government education agencies (SEAs, TEAs, and TGs) funded by the Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The questionnaires are referred to as the Indicators for School Health Programs. Currently, the Indicators for School Health Programs are the only standardized annual reporting process for HIV prevention activities or coordinated school health program (CSHP) activities funded by DASH. There is no other standardized annual reporting process for HIV prevention activities or coordinated school health program (CSHP) activities among LEAs and SEAs/TEAs/TGs funded by DASH. The data being gathered via the questionnaires: (1) Provides standardized information about how HIV prevention, CSHP/physical activity, nutrition, and tobacco (PANT) use, and asthma management funds are used by LEAs and SEAs/TEAs/TGs; (2) assesses the extent to which programmatic adjustments are indicated; (3) provides descriptive and process information about program activities; and (4) provides greater accountability for use of public funds. The questionnaires are completed by the DASH-funded partners on a Web site managed by DASH. The questionnaires are to be completed ninety days after the end of each fiscal year. The Web-based questionnaires correspond to the specific funding source from the Division of Adolescent PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and School Health: two questionnaires pertain to HIV-prevention program activities among LEAs and SEAs/TEAs/ TGs; one pertains to CSHP/PANT activities among SEAs/TGs; and one pertains to asthma management activities among LEAs. Two HIV prevention questionnaires include questions on project planning, materials distribution, professional development activities, provision of technical assistance, collaboration with external partners, and reducing health disparities among populations at disproportionate risk. CDC plans to implement minor changes in the HIV questionnaires beginning in year 2 of this clearance period. The CSHP/PANT questionnaire focuses on the activities above as well as on physical activity, healthy eating, and tobacco-use prevention activities. CDC plans to implement minor changes in the CSHP/PANT questionnaire beginning in year 2 of this clearance period. The asthma management questionnaire includes questions on project planning, materials distribution, professional development activities, provision of technical assistance, collaboration with external partners, reducing health disparities among populations at disproportionate risk, and health services. Information collection on asthma management programs will begin in year 2 of this clearance period. There are no costs to respondents other than their time to complete the survey. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 783. Estimated Annualized Burden Hours: E:\FR\FM\24MRN1.SGM 24MRN1
