The Lead in Construction Standard; Extension of the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Approval of Information Collection (Paperwork) Requirements, 47883-47885 [2012-19650]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 155 / Friday, August 10, 2012 / Notices 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). The information collection requirements in the Lead in General Industry Standard are designed to reduce occupational lead exposure in general industry. Lead exposure can result in both acute and chronic effects and can be fatal in severe cases of lead toxicity. The standard specifies the following requirements that impose paperwork burdens on employers: Establishing a compliance program and notifying laundry personnel of lead hazards; instituting programs for exposure monitoring and medical surveillance (including medical examinations); notifying workers of exposure levels and biological monitoring results; the option for multiple physician review; providing information to physicians; obtaining written medical opinions; implementing worker information and training programs; recording medical removals; maintaining and transferring records of exposure monitoring and medical surveillance results, medical removals, and objective data used for the initial exposure monitoring exemption; and making records available to specified parties. II. Special Issues for Comment mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 an adjustment decrease in burden hours from 1,225,253 to 1,127,123 (a total decrease of 98,130 hours). The adjustment is primarily due to a reduction in plants and a decrease in covered workers, based on updated data.

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 operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657).

Lead exposure can result in both acute and chronic effects and can be fatal in severe cases of lead toxicity.

The Standard requires that employers: Establish and maintain a training program; review the compliance program annually; provide exposure monitoring and medical surveillance programs; and maintain exposure monitoring and medical surveillance records. The records are used by employees, physicians, employers and OSHA to determine the effectiveness of the employer’s compliance efforts.

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 (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). 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).
    The purpose of the Lead in Construction Standard and its 
information collection requirements is to reduce occupational lead 
exposure in the construction industry. Lead exposure can result in both 
acute and chronic effects and can be fatal in severe cases of lead 
toxicity. Some of the health effects associated with lead exposure 
include brain disorders which can lead to seizures, coma, and death; 
anemia; neurological problems; high blood pressure; kidney problems; 
reproductive problems; and decreased red blood cell production. The 
Standard requires that employers: Establish and maintain a training 
program; review the compliance program annually; provide exposure 
monitoring and medical surveillance programs; and maintain exposure 
monitoring and medical surveillance records. The records are used by 
employees, physicians, employers and OSHA to determine the 
effectiveness of the employer's compliance efforts. The Standard seeks 
to reduce disease by requiring exposure monitoring to determine if lead 
exposures are too high, by requiring medical surveillance to determine 
if employee blood lead levels are too high, and by requiring treatment 
to reduce blood lead levels.

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 an adjustment increase in burden hours from 
1,363,802 to 1,425,907 (a total increase of 62,105 hours). The 
adjustment is primarily due to estimated increases in the number of 
firms, based on updated data and estimates.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Lead in Construction Standard (29 CFR 1926.62).
    OMB Number: 1218-0189.

State, Local or Tribal Government.
    Number of Respondents: 209,490.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion; Quarterly, Bi-monthly; Semi-
annually; Annually.
    Total Responses: 9,366,454.
    Average Time per Response: Varies from 1 minute (.02 hour) for a 
clerical employee to notify employees of their right to seek a second 
medical opinion to 8 hours to develop a compliance plan.

Estimated Total

    Burden Hours: 1,425,907.
