Proposed Project National Occupational Safety and Health Professional Workforce Assessment: Employer and Education Provider Survey Data Collection— New—National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The mission of the NIOSH is to generate new knowledge in the field of occupational safety and health (OS&H) and to transfer that knowledge into practice for the betterment of workers. Developing and supporting a new generation of practitioners is critical to the future of occupational safety and health. As part of its mission to increase safety and protect worker health, NIOSH funds programs to support occupational PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58631 safety and health education through 17 regional university-based Education and Research Centers and 31 Training Project grants that train occupational safety and health professionals to meet the increasing demand for these professionals. Because of this central role NIOSH plays in the education and training of OS&H workers and because of the continually changing nature of the workplace, over the last 38 years NIOSH has sponsored 3 OS&H workforce assessments. These were conducted in 1977 and 1985 by NIOSH; and in 2000 the Institute of Medicine conducted a workforce assessment at NIOSH’s request. NIOSH is planning to perform another assessment to examine the current and anticipated future professional OS&H workforce. The assessment will attempt to collect information from two groups— employers of OS&H professionals and providers of training programs for OS&H professionals. The information collected from employers will concern the current supply and future demand for OS&H professionals; and the desired professional competencies (i.e., knowledge, skills, and abilities) required for the coming decade. To ensure that the overall proposed methodology for collecting information from employers is successful in collecting the information required, we will conduct a phase I study with a small group of employers. Should any needed methodological changes be identified, NIOSH will submit a request for modification to OMB. If no substantive methodological changes are required, the phase II study will proceed and the phase I data will be included in the phase II study data set. It is expected that approximately 744 employers will have to be screened in Phase I and 6,681 in Phase II to yield approximately 400 employer responses (40 in the employer phase I, 360 in the employer phase II study). The initial step in the study of employers will be to sample the total number of establishments needed for screening. The phase I portion of employers then will be conducted using approximately 744 of the establishments sampled and the following methodology: • A telephone screening to identify employers of OS&H professionals will be conducted. During the screening to identify employers of OS&H professionals, we will also obtain contact information for the most appropriate respondent. It is expected that the appropriate respondent will be E:\FR\FM\13NON1.SGM 13NON1
