This study addresses the repeated recommendation by NIOSH that all commercial fishermen wear PFDs while on deck. NIOSH is requesting OMB approval for 24 months to administer a survey to collect data on fishermen’s perceptions, attitudes, and beliefs. Additionally, NIOSH is requesting approval to involve fishermen directly with an evaluation of the wearability of several different styles of PFDs during fishing operations. This study has the potential to greatly benefit the fishing industry. One of the first steps to increasing PFD use among commercial fishermen is gaining an understanding of fishermen’s reasons for not wearing PFDs. With the empirical data at hand, safety professionals may be better equipped to address fishermen’s concerns and remove the barriers that are currently in place. Findings from the PFD evaluations will provide manufacturers valuable information about commercial fishermen’s needs and expectations of PFDs. Because the PFD wearability ratings will be completed by fishermen during fishing operations, the results may have more credibility when they are disseminated to the industry. The PFD evaluation will also supply information to fishermen about which types of PFDs worked best for different types of fishing operations. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 200. Background and Brief Description NIOSH has the responsibility under Public Law 91–596 section 20 (Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970) to conduct research relating to innovative methods, techniques, and approaches for dealing with occupational safety and health problems. Commercial fishing is one of the most dangerous occupations in the United States, with a fatality rate 30 times higher than the national average. Most fishermen who die on the job drown subsequent to a vessel sinking (51%) or fall overboard (29%). Because drowning is the leading cause of death for commercial fishermen, its prevention is one of the highest priorities for those who work to make the industry safer. The risk of drowning for commercial fisherman is high, yet most fishermen do not wear Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) while on deck. From 1990 to 2005, 71 commercial fishermen drowned subsequent to a fall overboard in Alaska. None of the victims were wearing a PFD, and many were within minutes of being rescued when they lost their strength and disappeared under the surface of the water. Although there are many new styles of PFDs on the market, it is unknown how many commercial fishermen are aware of them, or if they are more comfortable and wearable than the older styles. There have not been any published studies testing PFDs on commercial fisherman to measure product attributes and satisfaction. The purpose of this study is to first, identify fishermen’s perceptions of risk, safety attitudes, and beliefs about PFDs; and second, to evaluate a variety of ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Number of respondents Type of respondent Average burden per response (in hours) Number of responses per respondent Total burden hours Fishermen (Survey) .........................................................................................

Proposed Project

    Health Marketing--New--National Center for Health Marketing (NCHM), 
Coordinating Center for Health Information and Service (CCHIS), Centers 
for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    CDC is globally recognized for conducting research and 
investigations and for its action oriented approach. CDC applies 
research and findings to improve people's daily lives and responds to 
health emergencies--something that distinguishes CDC from its peer 
agencies.
    CDC is committed to achieving true improvements in people's health. 
To do this, the agency is defining specific health protection goals to 
prioritize and focus its work and investments and measure progress.
    It is imperative that CDC provide high-quality timely information 
and programs in the most effective ways to help people, families, and 
communities protect their health and safety. Through continuous 
consumer feedback, prevention research, and public health information 
technology, we identify and evaluate health needs and interests, 
translate science into actions to meet those needs, and engage the 
public in the excitement of discovery and the progress being made to 
improve the health of the Nation. In our outreach to partners, we build 
relationships that model shared learning, mutual trust, and diversity 
in points of view and sectors of society.
    The National Center for Health Marketing (NCHM) of the Coordinating 
Center for Health Information and Service (CCHIS) was established to 
help ensure that health information, interventions, and programs at CDC 
are based on sound science, objectivity, and continuous customer input.
    NCHM is requesting a 3-year approval for the generic concept of
