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 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 Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is undertaking a rulemaking effort directed toward requiring employers to establish injury and illness prevention programs to monitor and more effectively implement practices to mitigate workplace hazards, thereby reducing the incidence of employee injuries and illnesses. OSHA believes that widespread implementation of such programs will substantially improve overall workplace safety and health conditions. To gain information needed to support this rulemaking effort, OSHA is proposing to conduct a statistical survey of private sector establishments in nonagricultural industries. The goal of the survey is to develop industry-specific, statistically accurate estimates of the current prevalence of a variety of baseline safety and health practices that PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48993 may be elements of injury and illness prevention programs among establishments. OSHA also proposes to conduct case study interviews in two sectors: (1) establishments in the agriculture sector to assess the prevalence of safety and health practices among farms with more than 10 workers; and (2) interviews with government officials in State Plan states to assess safety and heath practices among agencies and departments operated by state and local governments in State Plan states. In addition to the statistical survey (Baseline Safety and Health Practices) described above—which also includes ‘‘case studies’’ in two industry sectors that could not be adequately sampled by the survey methodology—the Agency is proposing to conduct as many as 50 site visits to employers. These employers could potentially be affected by a new standard that could require a management program or system to address workplace hazards. Site visits would collect information on current employer practices (much like the information collected in the ‘‘case studies’’ and the survey questionnaire itself), but also solicit information from employers on how they would comply with such a regulation and what time or costs would be required to do so. Site visit reports capture much richer detail about employer conditions than the survey instrument, reflecting variations of employer size and industry sector. These site visits would be conducted either by OSHA personnel or a contractor under the agency’s direction. 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 OMB approval of the collection of information (paperwork) requirements contained in the Baseline Safety and Health Practices Survey.

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 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 Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is 
undertaking a rulemaking effort directed toward requiring employers to 
establish injury and illness prevention programs to monitor and more 
effectively implement practices to mitigate workplace hazards, thereby 
reducing the incidence of employee injuries and illnesses. OSHA 
believes that widespread implementation of such programs will 
substantially improve overall workplace safety and health conditions.
    To gain information needed to support this rulemaking effort, OSHA 
is proposing to conduct a statistical survey of private sector 
establishments in non-agricultural industries. The goal of the survey 
is to develop industry-specific, statistically accurate estimates of 
the current prevalence of a variety of baseline safety and health 
practices that may be elements of injury and illness prevention 
programs among establishments. OSHA also proposes to conduct case study 
interviews in two sectors: (1) establishments in the agriculture sector 
to assess the prevalence of safety and health practices among farms 
with more than 10 workers; and (2) interviews with government officials 
in State Plan states to assess safety and heath practices among 
agencies and departments operated by state and local governments in 
State Plan states.
    In addition to the statistical survey (Baseline Safety and Health 
Practices) described above--which also includes ``case studies'' in two 
industry sectors that could not be adequately sampled by the survey 
methodology--the Agency is proposing to conduct as many as 50 site 
visits to employers. These employers could potentially be affected by a 
new standard that could require a management program or system to 
address workplace hazards. Site visits would collect information on 
current employer practices (much like the information collected in the 
``case studies'' and the survey questionnaire itself), but also solicit 
information from employers on how they would comply with such a 
regulation and what time or costs would be required to do so. Site 
visit reports capture much richer detail about employer conditions than 
the survey instrument, reflecting variations of employer size and 
industry sector. These site visits would be conducted either by OSHA 
personnel or a contractor under the agency's direction.

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 OMB approval of the collection of information 
(paperwork) requirements contained in the Baseline Safety and Health 
Practices Survey. The hour burden of the

[[Page 48994]]

information collection effort for the study is 4,177 hours. The burden 
hour estimates are based on tests of the length of time each type of 
respondent is likely to need to respond to the survey questions. The 
total cost to respondents is $213,153. This is a one-time data 
collection effort.
    OSHA will summarize the comments submitted in response to this
