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. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES III. Proposed Actions OSHA is requesting an adjustment decrease in burden hours from 327,533 to 237,854 (a total decrease of 89,679 hours). The reasons for this reduction are: The estimated decrease in the number of covered establishments and workers; and, the removal of burden hours associated with the requirement that employers provide training to workers. Upon further analysis, this provision is not considered to be a collection of information under PRA– 95. In addition, the costs to conduct a medical examination increased (from $180 to $218) and for contract industrial hygiene services to conduct exposuremonitoring sampling increased (from $45 to $50). However, overall capital costs decreased, from $42,626,346 to $41,724,296, a decrease of $902,050. The decrease is due to the estimated decrease in the number of covered workers undergoing exposure monitoring and medical exams. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Formaldehyde Standard (29 CFR 1910.1048). OMB Control Number: 1218–0145. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits. Number of Respondents: 84,931. Frequency of Response: Annually; On occasion; Semi-annually. Total Responses: 904,202. Average Time per Response: Varies from 5 minutes (.08 hour) for employers to maintain records to 1 hour for workers to receive medical evaluations. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 237,854. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:28 Aug 22, 2013 Jkt 229001 Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $41,724,296. IV.
