SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Jkt 229001 Section 103(h) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act), 30 U.S.C. 813(h), authorizes MSHA to collect information necessary to carry out its duty in protecting the safety and health of miners. Compressed-air receivers and other unfired pressure vessels must be inspected by inspectors holding a valid National Board Commission and in accordance with the applicable chapters of the National Board Inspection Code, a Manual for Boiler and Pressure Vessels Inspectors, 1979. Safety defects found on compressed-air receivers and other unfired pressure vessels have caused injuries and fatalities in the mining industry. PO 00000 Frm 00047 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Records of inspections must be kept in accordance with the requirements of the National Board Inspection Code and the records must be made available to the Secretary or an authorized representative. Fired pressure vessels (boilers) must be equipped with water level gauges, pressure gauges, automatic pressurerelief valves, blowdown piping and other safety devices approved by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) to protect against hazards from overpressure, flameouts, fuel interruptions and low water level. Records of inspection and repairs must be retained by the mine operator in accordance with the requirements of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, 1977, and the National Board Inspection Code (progressive records— no limit on retention time) and shall be made available to the Secretary or an authorized representative. Operators must inspect equipment, machinery, and tools that are to be used during a shift for safety defects before the equipment is placed in operation. Defects affecting safety are required to be corrected in a timely manner. In instances where the defect makes continued operation of the equipment hazardous to persons, the equipment must be removed from service, tagged to identify that it is out of use, and repaired before use is resumed. Safety defects on self-propelled mobile equipment account for many injuries and fatalities in the mining industry. Inspection of this equipment prior to use is required to ensure safe operation. The equipment operator is required to make a visual and operational check of the various primary operating systems that affect safety, such as brakes, lights, horn, seatbelts, tires, steering, back-up alarm, windshield, cab safety glass, rear and side view mirrors, and other safety and health related items. Any defects found are required to be either corrected immediately, or reported to and recorded by the mine operator prior to the timely correction. A record is not required if the defect is corrected immediately, i.e. a defect that the operator can fix without a mechanic such as a light bulb that needs turned tighter. The precise format in which the record is kept is left to the discretion of the mine operator. Reports of uncorrected defects are required to be recorded by the mine operator and kept at the mine office from the date the defects are recorded, until the defects are corrected. A competent person designated by the operator must examine each working place at least once each shift for E:\FR\FM\03SEN1.SGM 03SEN1

Form, Form WH-3, as a guide for recording information complainants 
(e.g., current and former employees, unions, and competitor employers) 
provide about alleged violations of agency-administered labor 
standards. Complainants generally provide the information requested on 
the form to WHD staff over the telephone or in person. WHD staff use 
the information to determine whether the agency has jurisdiction to 
investigate the alleged violation(s). When the WHD schedules a 
complaint-based investigation, the agency makes the completed Form WH-3 
part of the investigation case file. Where the information provided 
does not support a potential WHD enforcement action, complainants are 
advised and referred to the appropriate agency for further assistance.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and

other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to

authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. It should also be noted 
that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB
