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 accord 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 E:\FR\FM\17FEN1.SGM 17FEN1 9704 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 33 / Friday, February 17, 2012 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). The Standard on Blasting and the Use of Explosives (29 CFR part 1926, subpart U) specifies a number of paperwork requirements. The following is a brief description of the collection of information requirements contained in the Subpart. General Provisions (§ 1926.900) § 1926.900(d)—Paragraph (d) states that employers must ensure that explosives not in use are kept in a locked magazine, unavailable to persons not authorized to handle explosives. The employers must maintain an inventory and use record of all explosives—in use and not in use. In addition, the employer must notify the appropriate authorities in the event of any loss, theft, or unauthorized entry into a magazine. § 1926.900(k)(3)(i)—Paragraph (k)(3)(i) requires employers to display adequate signs warning against the use of mobile radio transmitters on all roads within 1,000 feet of blasting operations to prevent the accidental discharge of electric blasting caps caused by current induced by radar, radio transmitters, lightening, adjacent power lines, dust storms, or other sources of extraneous electricity. The employer must certify and maintain a record of alternative provisions made to adequately prevent any premature firing of electric blasting caps. § 1926.900(o)—Employers must notify the operators and/or owners of overhead power lines, communication lines, utility lines, or other services and structures when blasting operations will take place in proximity to those lines, services, or structures. § 1926.903(d)—The employer must notify the hoist operator prior to transporting explosives or blasting agents in a shaft conveyance. § 1926.903(e)—Employers must perform weekly inspections on the electrical system of trucks used for underground transportation of explosives. The weekly inspection is to detect any failure in the system which would constitute an electrical hazard. The most recent certification of inspection must be maintained and must include the date of inspection, a serial number or other identifier of the truck inspected, and the signature of the person who performed the inspection. § 1926.905(t)—Under § 1926.905(t), the employer blaster must maintain an accurate and up-to-date record of explosives, blasting agents, and blasting supplies used in a blast. In addition, the VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:08 Feb 16, 2012 Jkt 226001 employer must also maintain an accurate running inventory of all explosives and blasting agents stored on the operation. § 1926.909(a)—Employers must post a code of blasting agents on one or more conspicuous places at the operation. Additionally, all employees shall familiarize themselves with the code and conform to it at all times. Danger signs warning of blasting agents shall also be placed at suitable locations. 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 collection of information requirements contained in the Standard on Blasting and the Use of Explosives. The Agency will include this summary in its request to OMB to extend the approval of these collection of information requirements. Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection.

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 accord 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

[[Page 9704]]

operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent 
feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information 
(29 U.S.C. 657).
    The Standard on Blasting and the Use of Explosives (29 CFR part 
1926, subpart U) specifies a number of paperwork requirements. The 
following is a brief description of the collection of information 
requirements contained in the Subpart.

General Provisions (Sec.  1926.900)

    Sec.  1926.900(d)--Paragraph (d) states that employers must ensure 
that explosives not in use are kept in a locked magazine, unavailable 
to persons not authorized to handle explosives. The employers must 
maintain an inventory and use record of all explosives--in use and not 
in use. In addition, the employer must notify the appropriate 
authorities in the event of any loss, theft, or unauthorized entry into 
a magazine.
    Sec.  1926.900(k)(3)(i)--Paragraph (k)(3)(i) requires employers to 
display adequate signs warning against the use of mobile radio 
transmitters on all roads within 1,000 feet of blasting operations to 
prevent the accidental discharge of electric blasting caps caused by 
current induced by radar, radio transmitters, lightening, adjacent 
power lines, dust storms, or other sources of extraneous electricity. 
The employer must certify and maintain a record of alternative 
provisions made to adequately prevent any premature firing of electric 
blasting caps.
    Sec.  1926.900(o)--Employers must notify the operators and/or 
owners of overhead power lines, communication lines, utility lines, or 
other services and structures when blasting operations will take place 
in proximity to those lines, services, or structures.
    Sec.  1926.903(d)--The employer must notify the hoist operator 
prior to transporting explosives or blasting agents in a shaft 
conveyance.
    Sec.  1926.903(e)--Employers must perform weekly inspections on the 
electrical system of trucks used for underground transportation of 
explosives. The weekly inspection is to detect any failure in the 
system which would constitute an electrical hazard. The most recent 
certification of inspection must be maintained and must include the 
date of inspection, a serial number or other identifier of the truck 
inspected, and the signature of the person who performed the 
inspection.
    Sec.  1926.905(t)--Under Sec.  1926.905(t), the employer blaster 
must maintain an accurate and up-to-date record of explosives, blasting 
agents, and blasting supplies used in a blast. In addition, the 
employer must also maintain an accurate running inventory of all 
explosives and blasting agents stored on the operation.
    Sec.  1926.909(a)--Employers must post a code of blasting agents on 
one or more conspicuous places at the operation. Additionally, all 
employees shall familiarize themselves with the code and conform to it 
at all times. Danger signs warning of blasting agents shall also be 
placed at suitable locations.
