SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Noise-related hearing loss has been listed as one of the most prevalent occupational health concerns in the United States for more than 25 years. Every year between 20,000 and 25,000 workers suffer from preventable hearing loss due to high workplace noise levels. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has reported that nearly 125,000 workers have suffered significant, permanent hearing loss since 2004. Neither surgery nor a hearing aid can help correct this type of hearing loss. On October 19, 2010, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published in the Federal Register (FR) a proposed interpretation titled ‘‘Interpretation of OSHA’s Provisions for Feasible Administrative or Engineering Controls of Occupational Noise’’ (http:// www.edocket.access.gpo.gov/2010/ 2010–26135.htm). The proposed interpretation would have clarified the term ‘‘feasible administrative or engineering controls’’ as used in OSHA’s noise standard. This FR notice requested comments on the proposal to clarify that the word ‘‘feasible’’ has its ordinary, plain meaning of ‘‘capable of being done.’’ Comments were due December 20, 2010; however, in response to several requests from the regulated community, OSHA extended the comment period by 90 days to March 21, 2010. Over 90 comments were received in response to this proposed interpretation. OSHA stated that it would review all of the comments before making its final decision. The proposed interpretation was subsequently withdrawn on January 19, 2011, (http://www.osha.gov/pls/ oshaweb/owadisp.show_document? p_table=NEWS_ RELEASES&p_id=19119). OSHA decided to suspend work on the proposal in order to conduct an education, outreach and consultation initiative on preventing work-related hearing loss.
