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 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). Paragraph (b)(3) of the Standard specifies that systems have nameplates if required, and that these nameplates ‘‘be permanently attached to the system (as specified by paragraph (b)(3)(ii)(j)) so as to be readily accessible for inspection * * * ’’ In addition, this paragraph requires that markings on containers and systems covered by paragraphs (c) (‘‘Systems utilizing stationary, nonrefrigerated storage containers’’), (f) (‘‘Tank motor vehicles for the transportation of ammonia’’), (g) (‘‘Systems mounted on farm vehicles other than for the application of ammonia’’), and (h) (‘‘Systems mounted on farm vehicles for the application of ammonia’’) provide information regarding nine specific characteristics of the containers and systems. Similarly, paragraph (b)(4) of the Standard specifies that refrigerated containers be marked with a nameplate on the outer covering in an accessible place which provides information regarding eight specific characteristics of the container. The required markings ensure that employers use only properly designed and tested containers and systems to store anhydrous ammonia, thereby, preventing accidental release of, and exposure of workers to, this highly toxic E:\FR\FM\18NON1.SGM 18NON1 70688 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 222 / Thursday, November 18, 2010 / Notices and corrosive substance. In addition, these requirements provide the most efficient means for an OSHA compliance officer to ensure that the containers and systems are safe. 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 that OMB extend its approval of the information collection requirements specified in the Anhydrous Ammonia Standard (29 CFR 1910.111). The Agency is requesting that it retain its previous estimate of 345 burden hours associated with this Standard. The Agency will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice, and will include this summary in the request to OMB. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Anhydrous Ammonia (29 CFR 1910.111). OMB Number: 1218–0208. Affected Public: Farms. Number of Respondents: 2,030. Frequency: On Occasion. Total Responses: 2,030.

Workers separated from employment at Actel Corporation had their wages reported under a separate unemployment insurance (UI) tax account under the name Microsemi Corporation.

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 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).
    Paragraph (b)(3) of the Standard specifies that systems have 
nameplates if required, and that these nameplates ``be permanently 
attached to the system (as specified by paragraph (b)(3)(ii)(j)) so as 
to be readily accessible for inspection * * * '' In addition, this 
paragraph requires that markings on containers and systems covered by 
paragraphs (c) (``Systems utilizing stationary, nonrefrigerated storage 
containers''), (f) (``Tank motor vehicles for the transportation of 
ammonia''), (g) (``Systems mounted on farm vehicles other than for the 
application of ammonia''), and (h) (``Systems mounted on farm vehicles 
for the application of ammonia'') provide information regarding nine 
specific characteristics of the containers and systems. Similarly, 
paragraph (b)(4) of the Standard specifies that refrigerated containers 
be marked with a nameplate on the outer covering in an accessible place 
which provides information regarding eight specific characteristics of 
the container.
    The required markings ensure that employers use only properly 
designed and tested containers and systems to store anhydrous ammonia, 
thereby, preventing accidental release of, and exposure of workers to, 
this highly toxic

and corrosive substance. In addition, these requirements provide the 
most efficient means for an OSHA compliance officer to ensure that the 
containers and systems are safe.

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 that OMB extend its approval of the information 
collection requirements specified in the Anhydrous Ammonia Standard (29 
CFR 1910.111). The Agency is requesting that it retain its previous 
estimate of 345 burden hours associated with this Standard. The Agency 
will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice, and 
will include this summary in the request to OMB.

    OMB Number: 1218-0208.
    Affected Public: Farms.
    Number of Respondents: 2,030.
    Frequency: On Occasion.
