Download as PDF sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 70324 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 227 / Monday, November 25, 2013 / Notices (12) After a well has been intersected and the working place determined safe, continue mining inby the well at a distance sufficient to permit adequate ventilation around the area of the wellbore. (13) No person will be permitted in the area of the cut-through operation except those actually engaged in the mining operation, mine management, representative of the miners, personnel from MSHA, and personnel from the appropriate State agency. (14) A certified official will directly supervise the cut-through operation and only the certified official in charge will issue instructions concerning the cutthrough operation. (15) Locate non-sparking (brass) tools on the working section in the event they are needed to expose and examine cased wells. (16) Alert all personnel in the mine to the planned intersection of the well prior to their going underground if the planned intersection is to occur during their shift. Repeat this warning for all shifts until the well has been mined through. Mining may be conducted in other working sections during the intersection of the well. (17) The responsible person required in 30 CFR 75.1501 will be responsible for well intersection emergencies. The responsible person will review the well intersection procedures prior to any planned intersection. Within 60 days after this petition becomes final, the petitioner will submit proposed revisions for its approved part 48 training plan to the DM. Within 30 days after this petition becomes final, the petitioner will submit proposed revisions for its approved mine emergency evacuation and firefighting plan required in 30 CFR 75.1501. The petitioner will revise the plans to include the hazards and evacuation procedures to be used for well intersections. All underground miners will be trained in this revised plan within 30 days of the DM’s approval of the revised evacuation plan. Such training may be done in a weekly safety meeting or other type of appropriate setting. The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure or protection afforded by the existing standard. Docket Number: M–2013–051–C. Petitioner: Jim Walter Resources, Inc., 3000 Riverchase Galleria, Suite 1700, Birmingham, Alabama 35244. Mines: No. 4 Mine, MSHA I.D. No. 01–01247 and No. 7 Mine, MSHA I.D. No. 01–01401, located in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:53 Nov 22, 2013 Jkt 232001 Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 75.1506(a)(3) (Refuge alternatives). Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard to permit the continued use of its currently deployed refuge alternatives chambers in the No. 4 and No. 7 Mines past December 31, 2013, provided that they are refurbished or replaced as soon as practicable thereafter. The petitioner asserts that: (1) Compliance with the standard’s current December 31, 2013, deadline (to the possible) will result in a diminution of safety to miners; and (2) allowing the use of its currently deployed units will at all times in the foreseeable future guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded the miners by the standard. The petitioner states that: (1) MineARC refuge chambers are currently in use at the No. 4 and No. 7 Mines. (2) The MineARC refuge chamber is the only commercially available refuge model to incorporate both a powerless carbon dioxide/carbon monoxide (CO2/ CO) scrubber as well as an intrinsically safe air conditioning system (refrigerant R744) housed within the same constructed unit. (3) The use of MineARC refuge chambers at No. 4 and No. 7 Mines has been continuously approved in the Mines’ Emergency Response Plans (ERPs) since February 2009. (4) The MineARC refuge chambers are currently undergoing 30 CFR Part 7 approval. (5) MineARC’s efforts to obtain Part 7 approval have been in good faith and delays in receiving Part 7 approval are common throughout the industry as reflected by the current absence of approved chambers. (6) In addition to the pending 30 CFR Part 7 approval process, the MineARC refuge chambers in use at the No. 4 and No. 7 Mines must be refurbished to comply with the directives of MSHA’s Program Policy Letter No. P11–V–17. (7) On April 4, 2013, MineARC informed the petitioner that MineARC will be unable to refurbish or replace all of the petitioners units prior to December 31, 2013, for the petitioner to comply with 30 CFR 75.1506(a)(3) and/ or the requirements of MSHA’s Program Policy Letter No. P11–V–17. (8) Replacing the currently deployed MineARC refuge chambers by December 31, 2013, with non-air conditioned, MSHA-approved refuge chambers is not feasible and/or would place the miners at significant and greater risk in any emergency. (9) The only way to guarantee no less than the same measure of safety to the PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 miners as afforded by the standard prior to December 31, 2013, is for MSHA to approve continued deployment of its MineARC refuge chambers until their replacement with like units and/or refurbishment of current units as soon as practicable. (10) Without instant granting of this petition, it will be impossible to submit the currently deployed MineARC chambers for approval by the District Manager in its ERPs under 30 CFR 75.1507 for January 2014 and later use. (11) Granting of this petition will in no way limit the authority of the District Manager to require appropriate measures in Jim Walter Resources’ ERPs to assure timely replacement of its current MineARC chambers with fullycompliant refurbished units. The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded by the existing standard. Dated: November 19, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD 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 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:53 Nov 22, 2013 Jkt 232001 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 collections of information contained in the Hydrostatic Testing Provision of the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard are necessary to reduce workers’ risk of death or serious injury by ensuring that portable fire extinguishers are in safe operating condition. The following paragraphs describe who uses the information in the testing certification record, as well as how they use it. Test Records (§ 1910.157(f)(16)) Paragraph (f)(16) requires employers to develop and maintain a certification record of hydrostatic testing of portable fire extinguishers. The certification record must include the date of inspection, the signature of the person who performed the test, and the serial number (or other identifier) of the fire extinguisher that was tested. Disclosure of Test Certification Records The certification record must be available to the Assistant Secretary or his/her representative upon request. The certification record provides assurance to employers, workers, and OSHA compliance officers that the fire extinguishers have been hydrostatically tested in accord with and at the intervals specified in § 1910.157(f)(16), thereby ensuring that they will operate properly in the event workers need to use them. Additionally, these records provide the most efficient means for the compliance officers to determine that an employer is complying with the hydrostatic testing provision. II. Special Issues for Comment OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues: PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 70325 • 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 cost) 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 that OMB extend its approval of the information collection requirements contained in the Hydrostatic Testing Provision of the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard for General Industry (29 CFR 1910.157(f)(16)). OSHA is proposing to increase the burden hours in its currently approved information collection request from 124,084 burden hours to 125,986 burden hours (a total increase of 1,902 hours). This increase is due to updated data showing an increase in the number of firms affected by the Standard. The Agency will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice and will include this summary in the request to OMB. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: The Hydrostatic Testing Provision of the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard (29 CFR 1910.157(f)(16)). OMB Control Number: 1218–0218. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits. Number of Responses: 9,205,000. Frequency of Responses: On occasion. Average Time per Response: Ranges from one minute (.02 hour) to maintain the certification records to 33 minutes (.55 hour) to test an extinguisher, and generate and maintain the certification record. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 125,986 hours. Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $16,952,542. 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 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 collections of information contained in the Hydrostatic Testing 
Provision of the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard are necessary to 
reduce workers' risk of death or serious injury by ensuring that 
portable fire extinguishers are in safe operating condition. The 
following paragraphs describe who uses the information in the testing 
certification record, as well as how they use it.

Test Records (Sec.  1910.157(f)(16))

    Paragraph (f)(16) requires employers to develop and maintain a 
certification record of hydrostatic testing of portable fire 
extinguishers. The certification record must include the date of 
inspection, the signature of the person who performed the test, and the 
serial number (or other identifier) of the fire extinguisher that was 
tested.

Disclosure of Test Certification Records

    The certification record must be available to the Assistant 
Secretary or his/her representative upon request. The certification 
record provides assurance to employers, workers, and OSHA compliance 
officers that the fire extinguishers have been hydrostatically tested 
in accord with and at the intervals specified in Sec.  1910.157(f)(16), 
thereby ensuring that they will operate properly in the event workers 
need to use them. Additionally, these records provide the most 
efficient means for the compliance officers to determine that an 
employer is complying with the hydrostatic testing provision.

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 
cost) 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 that OMB extend its approval of the information 
collection requirements contained in the Hydrostatic Testing Provision 
of the Portable Fire Extinguishers Standard for General Industry (29 
CFR 1910.157(f)(16)). OSHA is proposing to increase the burden hours in 
its currently approved information collection request from 124,084 
burden hours to 125,986 burden hours (a total increase of 1,902 hours). 
This increase is due to updated data showing an increase in the number 
of firms affected by the Standard. The Agency will summarize the 
comments submitted in response to this notice and will include this 
summary in the request to OMB.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
