Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 46943-46944 [2010-19118]

Download as PDF 46943 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 149 / Wednesday, August 4, 2010 / Notices 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(s). • A letter will be mailed to all eligible phase I establishments describing the study, inviting them to participate, and providing web access information. • Data collection then will be primarily by web questionnaire. After two weeks, all non-respondents will receive a special delivery service envelope containing another copy of the invitation letter. Two weeks later, telephone contact with non-respondents will begin. Up to 7 attempts to contact each potential respondent by telephone will be made. (When contact is made, respondents will be encouraged to complete the questionnaire on the web or by telephone at that time.) Assuming no methodological changes result from the phase I study, the phase II employer study then will begin with telephone screening of an additional 6,681 establishments. The data collection methodology will be identical to that described for the phase I study of employers. The study of educational providers will be a census of the approximately 400 educational providers identified and listed as part of this effort. There will be no sampling or screening activities. The information collected will be similar to that collected from employers. Beginning with the invitation letter, the data collection methodology for educational providers will be identical to that of the phase II study of the employers. We expect 180 educational providers to respond to either the Web or telephone questionnaire. There is no cost to any respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 898. ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Number of respondents Type of respondent Form name Employer .................................
