ACTION: Notice of meeting. SUMMARY: The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) in the Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration (ETA) has been reengineering several of its programs, including the H–2A foreign agricultural worker labor certification program. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the Employment Standards Administration (ESA) has been amending contractual obligations applicable to employers of workers subject to Section 218 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The Department published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to redesign the H–2A agricultural labor certification program on February 13, 2008. The Department is currently reviewing public comments on this proposed rule and intends to publish final regulations before the end of the calendar year. In addition, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has published an NPRM to amend its H–2A regulations and intends to publish a final rule before the end of the calendar year as well. Pursuant to the Department of Labor final rule, changes to information collection and regulatory requirements will affect the application forms. The H– 2A program will no longer use the Form ETA 750 (OMB control number 1205– VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:27 Dec 04, 2008 Jkt 217001 0015). Instead the program will utilize the new Form ETA 9142 (OMB control number 1205–0466). The new regulations also federalize the prevailing wage determination process in the H– 2A program. ETA and ESA are issuing this notice to announce that they will offer at least two public briefings to educate stakeholders, program users, and other interested members of the public on using the re-engineered program and new form. Representatives from DHS will also be joining the Department of Labor at the briefing sessions. As currently planned, the two briefings will take place in late 2008 in Atlanta and Denver. This notice provides the public with locations, dates, and registration information regarding the briefings. However, these briefings are subject to change and/or cancellation without further notice in the Federal Register. In the event of a change participants who have registered will be notified.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing efforts 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 OSH VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:27 Dec 04, 2008 Jkt 217001 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). The information collection requirements specified in the Cadmium in Construction Standard protect employees from the adverse health effects that may result from their exposure to cadmium. The major information collection requirements in the Standard include conducting employee exposure monitoring, notifying employees of their cadmium exposures, implementing a written compliance program, implementing medical surveillance of employees, providing examining physicians with specific information, ensuring that employees receive a copy of their medical surveillance results, maintaining employees’ exposure monitoring and medical surveillance records for specific periods, and providing access to these records by OSHA, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the employee who is the subject of the records, the employee’s representative, and other designated parties. 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 Cadmium in Construction Standard (29 CFR 1926.1127). The Agency is proposing to retain its previous estimate of 39,331 burden hours; however, it is proposing to increase the currently approved capital costs from $1,657,460 PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to $1,775,457, a total increase of $117,997. The increase is due to the Agency increasing the cost to perform medical surveillance and exposure monitoring. 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: Cadmium in Construction Standard (29 CFR 1926.1127). OMB Number: 1218–0186. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits; Federal Government; State, Local or Tribal Government. Number of Respondents: 10,000. Frequency: On occasion; quarterly; semi-annually; annually. Average Time per Response: Varies from two minutes (.03 hour) for a secretary to compile and maintain training records to 1.5 hours to administer employee medical examinations. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 39,331. Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $1,775,457 IV.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing efforts 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 OSH 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

    The information collection requirements specified in the Cadmium in

that may result from their exposure to cadmium. The major information 
collection requirements in the Standard include conducting employee 
exposure monitoring, notifying employees of their cadmium exposures, 
implementing a written compliance program, implementing medical

to these records by OSHA, the National Institute for Occupational 
Safety and Health, the employee who is the subject of the records, the 
employee's representative, and other designated parties.

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 Cadmium in Construction

increase the currently approved capital costs from $1,657,460 to 
$1,775,457, a total increase of $117,997. The increase is due to the 
Agency increasing the cost to perform medical surveillance and exposure 
monitoring.
