Marking of explosives enables law enforcement entities to more effectively trace explosives from the manufacturer through the distribution chain to the end purchaser. This process is used as a tool in criminal enforcement activities. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: It is estimated that 2,184 respondents will respond to this information collection. Estimated time for a respondent to respond is none. Manufacturers are required to place markings on explosives, therefore, the burden hours are considered usual and customary. 5 CFR 1320.3(b)(2) states, there is no burden when the collection of information is usual and customary. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated annual total burden hours associated with this collection is 1 hour.

Background [Docket No. OSHA–2011–0054] Revocation of Permanent Variances Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Labor. ACTION: Notice of revocation. AGENCY: With this notice, OSHA is revoking twenty-four (24) obsolete variances. Between 1975 and 1977, OSHA granted permanent variances to 24 companies engaged in the construction of cylindrical steel tanks. The variances specified several conditions that served as an alternative means of compliance to the fallingobject-protection and fall-protection requirements of the standard governing general requirements for scaffolds in effect during this period. In 1996, OSHA revised its scaffolds standards for construction to include provisions that essentially duplicated the conditions sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:15 Mar 01, 2013 Jkt 229001 specified by these variances. Therefore, OSHA believes the alternative means of compliance granted by the variances is no longer necessary and is revoking the variances. Based on comments received in response to a December 19, 2011, notice proposing to revoke these variances (76 FR 78698), on August 7, 2012, OSHA published a notice in the Federal Register correcting several cross references in OSHA’s scaffolds standards for construction (77 FR 46948). Today’s notice revoking the variances takes into consideration these newly corrected cross references. DATES: The effective date of the revocation of the permanent variances is March 4, 2013.

Copies of this Federal Register notice. Electronic copies of this notice are available at http:// www.regulations.gov. Electronic copies of this notice, as well as news releases and other relevant information, are available on OSHA’s Web site at http://www.osha.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OSHA’s general requirements for scaffolds used in the construction industry are set forth at 29 CFR 1926.451. OSHA adopted this standard from Section 107 of the Contract Work Hours and Safety Standards Act (Construction Safety Act) (40 U.S.C. 3704) under Section 6(a) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act; 29 U.S.C. 651, 655) in 1971 (see 36 FR 7340). Paragraphs (a)(4) and (a)(5) of § 1926.451 required employers to erect, on scaffolds more than 10 feet above the ground or floor, toeboards having a minimum height of four inches on all open sides and open ends of the platforms. These requirements prevented tools and other equipment from falling from the scaffold and striking employees below. To ensure the structural integrity of scaffolds, § 1926.451(a)(5) required employers to erect guardrail supports at PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 intervals not to exceed eight feet, while Table L–3 in § 1926.451(a)(10) set maximum permissible spans for 2-inch x 10-inch (or wider) planks. Between 1975 and 1977, OSHA granted 24 permanent variances from the falling-object-protection and fallprotection requirements in § 1926.451(a)(4), (a)(5), and (a)(10) to employers using scaffolds in the construction of cylindrical steel tanks. Construction of these tanks involves attaching curved steel plates together to form the outer surface of a tank. After attaching a horizontal layer (ring) of steel plates around the circumference of the existing shell, employees raise the scaffolds to attach the next ring of steel plates onto the existing shell. Steel mills typically fabricate the steel plates to a standard length. After delivery of the steel plates to a worksite, and prior to attaching the plates to form the outer surface of a tank, employers attach scaffolding and guardrail supports to brackets welded onto the steel plates. The standard length and radius of the steel plates make it difficult for employers to properly space scaffolding and guardrail supports as specified by § 1926.451. To address this problem, employers developed special procedures and methods, including special scaffolding that is more mobile, flexible, and holds fewer workers than conventional scaffolding. A. Alternative Means of Compliance Specified in the 24 Variances The variances OSHA granted to the 24 employers did not require scaffolds used in the construction of cylindrical steel tanks to have the toeboards required by § 1926.451(a)(4) and (a)(5). Instead, the variances specified that the employers must implement the following conditions as an alternative means of compliance: (1) Ensure that employees keep loose tools and equipment in secure, well-designed containers; and (2) use ropes to demarcate the area below the scaffold and post clearly visible signs indicating ‘‘overhead work above.’’ The variances also stated that no more than three employees could work on a 101⁄2-foot plank at any time. Since the contour of the steel plates on a tank’s outer surface is curved, and the adjacent edge of the scaffold is straight, there is an open space between them. As a result, the variances provided for the installation of a taut wire rope between the innermost edge of the scaffold and the curved plate of a tank’s outer surface to serve as a safety line in place of a guardrail assembly. In the event the open space on either side of the rope exceeded 12 inches, the E:\FR\FM\04MRN1.SGM 04MRN1
