ACTION: Notice of Intent to Solicit Cooperative Agreement Applications. AGENCY: The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB), intends to award, through a competitive and merit-based process, two or more cooperative agreements to organizations to implement projects to combat exploitative child labor by promoting educational and training opportunities for target children and sustainable livelihoods for their households. In FY 2010, ILAB received Congressional authority to fund subgrants and microfinance activities. ILAB intends to obligate up to $9.5 million for a child labor elimination project(s) in Egypt and up to $4 million for a child labor elimination project(s) in Jordan. Projects to be funded under these solicitations will need to address the following five goals: 1. Reducing exploitative child labor, especially the worst forms through the provision of direct educational services and by addressing root causes of child labor, including innovative strategies to promote sustainable livelihoods of target households; 2. Strengthening policies on child labor, education, and sustainable livelihoods, and the capacity of national institutions to combat child labor, address its root causes, and promote formal, nonformal and vocational education opportunities to provide children with alternatives to child labor; mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:19 Sep 15, 2010 Jkt 220001 3. Raising awareness of exploitative and hazardous child labor and its root causes, and the importance of education for all children and mobilizing a wide array of actors to improve and expand education infrastructures; 4. Supporting research, evaluation, and the collection of reliable data on child labor, its root causes, and effective strategies, including educational and vocational alternatives, microfinance and other income generating activities to improve household income; and 5. Ensuring the long-term sustainability of these efforts. ILAB intends to solicit cooperative agreement applications from qualified organizations (i.e., any commercial, international, educational, or non-profit organization, including any faith-based, community-based, or public international organization(s), capable of successfully developing and implementing child labor projects) to implement these projects. Please refer to http://www.dol.gov/ILAB/grants/ main.htm for examples of previous notices of availability of funds and solicitations for cooperative agreement applications (SGAs). Key Dates: The forthcoming SGAs will be published on http://www.grants.gov and USDOL/ILAB’s Web site. A brief synopsis of the SGA(s), which will include Web site links to the full text solicitation(s), will be published in the Federal Register. The SGA(s) will remain open for at least 45 days from the date of publication. All cooperative agreement awards will be made on or before December 31, 2010. Submission Information: Applications in response to the forthcoming SGAs may be submitted electronically via http://www.grants.gov or hard copy by mail. Hard copy applications must be delivered to: U.S. Department of Labor, Procurement Services Center, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Room S– 4307, Washington, DC 20210, Attention: Georgiette Nkpa.

Background Information: Since 1995, the U.S. Congress has appropriated over $780 million to ILAB for efforts to combat exploitative child labor internationally. This funding has been used to support technical cooperation projects to combat exploitative child labor, including the worst forms, in more than 80 countries around the world. Technical cooperation projects funded by USDOL range from targeted action programs in specific sectors of work to more comprehensive programs that support national efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor, as defined by International Labor Organization (ILO) Convention 182. USDOL-funded projects have withdrawn or prevented over 1.4 million children from exploitative child labor. Signed at Washington, DC, this 7th day of September, 2010. Cassandra R.

In addition, Section 103(h) of the Mine Act mandates that mine operators keep any records and make any reports that are reasonably necessary for the Mine Safety and Health Administration to perform its duties under the Mine Act. MSHA established standards and regulations for diesel-powered equipment in underground coal mines that provide additional important protection for coal miners who work on and around diesel-powered equipment. The standards were designed to reduce the risks to underground coal miners of serious health hazards associated with exposure to high concentrations of diesel particulate matter. The standards contain information collection requirements for underground coal mine operators in Health Standards for Diesel Particulate Matter Exposure (Underground Coal Mines) 30 CFR 75.1915/72.503, 72.510, 72.520 and Part 7 or Part 36 as a result of § 72.500. • After-treatment devices installed on diesel-powered equipment must be maintained according to manufacturer specifications.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    Section 103(h) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 
(Mine Act), 30 U.S.C. 13(h), authorizes MSHA to collect information 
necessary to carry out its duty in protecting the safety and health of 
miners.
     Compressed-air receivers and other unfired pressure 
vessels must be inspected by inspectors holding a valid National Board 
Commission and in accordance with the applicable chapters of the 
National Board Inspection Code, a Manual for Boiler and Pressure 
Vessels Inspectors, 1979. Safety defects found on compressed-air 
receivers and other unfired pressure vessels have caused injuries and 
fatalities in the mining industry. Records of inspections are required 
to be kept in accordance with the requirements of the National Board 
Inspection Code and the records must be made available to the Secretary 
or an authorized representative.
     Fired pressure vessels (boilers) must be equipped with 
water level gauges, pressure gauges, automatic pressure-relief valves, 
blowdown piping and other safety devices approved by the American 
Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to protect against hazards from 
overpressure, flameouts, fuel interruptions and low water level. These 
sections also require that records of inspection and repairs be kept by 
the mine operator in accordance with the requirements of the ASME 
Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, 1977, and the National Board 
Inspection Code (progressive records--no limit on retention time) and 
must be made available to the Secretary or an authorized 
representative.
     Operators must inspect equipment, machinery, and tools 
that are to be used during a shift for safety defects before the 
equipment is placed in operation. Defects affecting safety are required 
to be corrected in a timely manner. In instances where the defect makes 
continued operation of the equipment hazardous to persons, the

correction. A record is not required if unsafe conditions are not 
present upon examination prior to use if the defect is corrected

the discretion of the mine operator. Reports of uncorrected defects are 
required to be recorded by the mine operator and kept at the mine 
office from the date the defects are recorded, until the defects are 
corrected.
     A competent person designated by the operator must examine 
each working place at least once each shift for conditions which may 
adversely affect safety or health. A record of such examinations must 
be kept by the operator for a period of one year and must be made 
available for review by the Secretary or an authorized representative.
