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

[[Page 44289]]

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 
obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657).
    The paperwork provisions of the Standard specify requirements for: 
Marking the rated load of cranes; preparing certification records to 
verify the inspection of the crane hooks, hoist chains, and rope; 
preparing reports of rated load tests for repaired hooks or modified 
cranes. Records and reports must be maintained and disclosed upon 
request.

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 an adjustment decrease of 38,764 burden hours, 
from 360,144 hours to 321,380 hours. The decrease is a result of new 
information showing that there are 31,495 overhead and gantry cranes in 
use, down from the previously estimated 35,000.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Overhead and Gantry Cranes (29 CFR 1910.179).
    OMB Number: 1218-0224.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profits.
    Number of Respondents: 31,495.
    Frequency: On occasion; Monthly; Semi-annually.
    Average Time per Response: Varies from 5 minutes (.08 hour) to 
disclose certification records to 2 hours to obtain and post rated load
