Aerial Lifts Standard; Extension of the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Approval of Information Collection (Paperwork) Requirements, 64982-64983 [2013-25712]

Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES 64982 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 210 / Wednesday, October 30, 2013 / Notices Employers’ Attestation to Use Alien Crewmembers for Longshore Activities in U.S. Ports, Form ETA–9033, (currently approved under Control Number 1205–0309) and the Employers’ Attestation to Use Alien Crewmembers for Longshore Activities in the State of Alaska, Form ETA–9033A (currently approved under Control Number 1205– 0352). The information collection is required by Immigration and Nationality Act section 258 (8 U.S.C. 1288) and regulations 20 CFR 655 subpart F. The ETA collects the attestations from shipping companies seeking to use foreign crewmembers for longshore work when no U.S. workers are available. This ICR has been classified as a revision, because the DOL is merging two Control Numbers, which will simplify the process for both the stakeholder community interested in these collections and the Federal staff reviewing and enforcing the attestations. Control Number 1205–0352 will survive after the merger. The DOL is also proposing changes to the layout of the forms for ease of review and completion. Finally, the DOL proposes to add a few new collection fields that will more accurately capture employer and job-related information. The update of the forms will, for example, reflect current communications methods by requesting email addresses rather than fax numbers. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Numbers 1205–0309 and 1205–0352. The current approval for Control Number 1205–0309 is scheduled to expire on October 31, 2013, and Control Number 1205–0352 expires October 31, 2014. It should be noted that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a monthto-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on August 8, 2013 (78 FR 48463). VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:58 Oct 29, 2013 Jkt 232001 Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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 accord 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 OSHA to 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 certification requirement specified in the Aerial Lifts Standard VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:58 Oct 29, 2013 Jkt 232001 demonstrates that the manufacturer or an equally-qualified entity has assessed a modified aerial lift and found that it was safe for use by, or near, workers, and that it would provide workers with a level of protection at least equivalent to the protection afforded by the lift prior to modification. OSHA is requesting an adjustment increase in burden hour of 7 hours, resulting from an increase in the number of field modified lifts from 1,025 to 1,953; and an increase in the percentage of construction employers likely to be inspected from 6% to 6.6%. 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 Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Aerial Lifts Standard in Construction (29 CFR 1926.453) . OMB Control Number: 1218–0216. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits. Number of Respondents: 128. Frequency of Responses: On occasion. Total Responses: 128. Average Time per Response: 6 minutes (.10 hour) Estimated Total Burden Hours: 13. Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $0. IV.

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 accord 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 OSHA to 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 certification requirement specified in the Aerial Lifts 
Standard demonstrates that the manufacturer or an equally-qualified 
entity has assessed a modified aerial lift and found that it was safe 
for use by, or near, workers, and that it would provide workers with a 
level of protection at least equivalent to the protection afforded by 
the lift prior to modification. OSHA is requesting an adjustment 
increase in burden hour of 7 hours, resulting from an increase in the 
number of field modified lifts from 1,025 to 1,953; and an increase in 
the percentage of construction employers likely to be inspected from 6% 
to 6.6%.

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

    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Aerial Lifts Standard in Construction (29 CFR 1926.453) .
    OMB Control Number: 1218-0216.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profits.
    Number of Respondents: 128.
