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). OSHA is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for certain information collection requirements contained in the Temporary Labor Camps Standard (29 CFR 1910.142). The main purpose of these provisions is to eliminate the incidence of communicable disease among temporary labor camp residents. The Standard requires camp superintendents to report immediately to the local health officer the name and address of any individual in the camp known to have, or suspected of having, a communicable disease. Whenever there is a case of suspected food poisoning or an unusual prevalence of any illness in which fever, diarrhea, sore throat, vomiting or jaundice is a prominent symptom, the Standard requires the camp superintendent to report that immediately to the health authority. In addition, the Standard requires that where the toilet rooms are shared, separate toilet rooms must be provided for each sex. These rooms must be ‘‘marked for men’’ and’’ for women’’ by signs printed in English and in the native language of the persons occupying the camp, or marked with easily understood pictures or symbols.

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 (PRA-95) (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).
    OSHA is requesting approval from the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for certain information collection requirements contained 
in the Temporary Labor Camps Standard (29 CFR 1910.142). The main 
purpose of these provisions is to eliminate the incidence of 
communicable disease among temporary labor camp residents. The Standard 
requires camp superintendents to report immediately to the local health 
officer the name and address of any individual in the camp known to 
have, or suspected of having, a communicable disease. Whenever there is 
a case of suspected food poisoning or an unusual prevalence of any 
illness in which fever, diarrhea, sore throat, vomiting or jaundice is 
a prominent symptom, the Standard requires the camp superintendent to 
report that immediately to the health authority. In addition, the 
Standard requires that where the toilet rooms are shared, separate 
toilet rooms must be provided for each sex. These rooms must be 
``marked for men'' and'' for women'' by signs printed in English and in 
the native language of the persons occupying the camp, or marked with 
easily understood pictures or symbols.

II. Special Issues for Comment

    OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:

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 contained in the Temporary Labor Camps Standard 
(29 CFR 1910.142). OSHA is proposing to decrease its existing burden

this notice and will include this summary in its request to OMB for 
approval.
