SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Under Section 101(a) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 
1977 (Mine Act), and Title 5, United States Code, Section 553, the 
Secretary of Labor shall develop, promulgate, and revise as may be 
appropriate, improved mandatory health or safety standards for the 
protection of life and prevention of injuries in coal or other mines.
    Diesel particulate matter (DPM) is a probable carcinogen that 
consists of tiny particles present in diesel engine exhaust that can 
readily penetrate into the deepest recesses of the lungs. Despite 
ventilation, the confined underground mine work environment may 
contribute to significant concentrations of particles produced by 
equipment used in the mine. Underground miners are exposed to higher 
concentrations of DPM than any other occupational group. As a result, 
they face a significantly greater risk than other workers of developing 
such diseases as lung cancer, heart failure, serious allergic responses 
and other cardiopulmonary problems.
    This information collection addresses the recordkeeping associated 
with:

Sec.   57.5060.........................  Limit on exposure to diesel
                                          particulate matter.

II. Desired Focus of Comments

    The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is soliciting 
comments concerning the proposed extension of the information 
collection related to the health standards for diesel particulates 
matter in underground metal and nonmetal mines. MSHA is particularly
