SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort 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 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 Standards on Longshoring and Marine Terminal Operations contain a number of collections of information which are used by employers to ensure that employees are informed properly about the safety and health hazards associated with longshoring and marine terminal operations. OSHA uses the records developed in response to the E:\FR\FM\08DEN1.SGM 08DEN1 74528 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 236 / Monday, December 8, 2008 / Notices collection of information requirements to find out if the employer is complying adequately with the provisions of the standards. 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 proposing that OMB extend its approval of the information collection requirements contained in the Standards on Longshoring (29 CFR part 1918) and Marine Terminal Operations. The Agency is proposing to retain its current burden hour estimate of 35,948 hours. The Agency will summarize any comments submitted in response to this notice and will include this summary in its request to OMB. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
