E8–26486 Filed 11–6–08; 8:45 am] description of the State’s Continuing Planning Process. B. Public Comments The EPA received numerous public comments concerning the Alaska APDES program. Several comments urged the EPA to approve the State’s program. Supporters of approval felt the State had met all of the CWA requirements and that the program would benefit from being operated by ADEC though increased accessibility, resources, and familiarity with Alaska conditions. Comments were received that urged EPA to not approve the authorization request based on grounds that the application did not meet CWA requirements, including the lack of an adequate state enforcement program. Numerous Tribal governments and communities expressed concerns that once Alaska receives authorization, government-to-government tribal consultation with EPA would no longer be required and Tribes would lose an avenue for providing input into permit decisions. Some Tribes assert EPA’s trust responsibilities to Tribes prohibit program approval until all Tribal concerns are addressed. All public comments are addressed in the EPA Response to Comments document dated October 31, 2008, and can be viewed and downloaded from the EPA Web site, http://www.epa.gov/r10earth/ waterpermits.htm.

Proposed Project Occupational Injuries and Illnesses Among Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Workers: A NEISS-Work Telephone Interview Survey—New— National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description Studies have reported that EMS workers have higher rates of non-fatal PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 injuries and illnesses as compared to the general worker population. As EMS professionals are tasked with protecting the health of the public and treating urgent medical needs, it follows that understanding and preventing injuries and illnesses among EMS workers will have a benefit reaching beyond the workers to the general public. As mandated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Pub. L. 91–596), the mission of NIOSH is to conduct research and investigations on occupational safety and health. Related to this mission, the purpose of this project is to conduct research that will provide a detailed description of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses incurred by EMS workers. This project will bridge a gap of limited existing EMS worker injury and illness surveillance identified in a 2007 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, (NHTSA) report. The project will use two related data sources. The first source is data abstracted from medical records of EMS workers treated in a nationally stratified sample of emergency departments. These data are routinely collected by the occupational supplement to the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS-Work). The second data source, for which NIOSH is seeking OMB approval, is responses to telephone interview surveys of the injured and ill EMS workers identified within NEISS-Work. The proposed telephone interview surveys will supplement NEISS-Work data with an extensive description of EMS worker injuries and illnesses, including worker characteristics, injury types, injury circumstances, injury outcomes, and use of personal protective equipment. Previous reports describing occupational injuries and illnesses to EMS workers provide limited details on specific regions or sub-segments of the population and many are outdated. As compared to these earlier studies, the scope of the telephone interview data will be broader as it includes sampled cases nationwide and has no limitations in regards to type of employment (i.e., volunteer versus career). Results from the telephone interviews will be weighted and reported as national estimates. The sample size for the telephone interview survey is estimated to be approximately 175 EMS workers annually for the proposed four year duration of the study. This estimate is based on the number of EMS workers identified in previous years of NEISSWork data and a 50% response rate that is comparable to the rate of previously conducted National Electronic Injury E:\FR\FM\07NON1.SGM 07NON1
