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 (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 Standard specifies two paperwork requirements. The following sections describe who uses the information collected under each requirement, as well as how they use it. The purpose of the requirements is to reduce workers’ risk of death or serious injury by ensuring that manlifts are in safe operating condition. Periodic Inspections and Records (paragraph (e)). This provision requires that each manlift be inspected at least once every 30 days and it also requires that limit switches shall be checked weekly. The manlift inspection is to cover at least the following items: Steps; step fastenings; rails; rail supports and fastenings; rollers and slides; belt and belt tension; handholds and fastenings; floor landings; guardrails; lubrication; limit switches; warning signs and lights; illumination; drive pulley; bottom (boot) pulley and clearance; pulley supports; motor; driving mechanism; brake; electrical switches; vibration and misalignment; and any ‘‘skip’’ on the up or down run when mounting a step (indicating worn gears). A certification record of the inspection must be prepared upon completion of the inspection. The record must contain the date of the inspection, the signature of PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 78397 the person who performed the inspection, and the serial number or other identifier of the inspected manlift. Disclosure of Inspection Certification Records. Employers are to maintain the certification record and make it available to OSHA compliance officers. This record provides assurance to employers, workers, and compliance officers that manlifts were inspected as required by the Standard. The inspections are made to keep equipment in safe operating condition thereby preventing manlift failure while carrying workers to elevated worksites. These records also provide the most efficient means for the compliance officers to determine that an employer is complying with the Standard. II.

Notice and Request for Comments—LSC merger of the migrant service areas in Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama. AGENCY: ACTION: The Legal Services Corporation (LSC) intends to merge the Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama migrant service areas. Grants for these individual service areas have been awarded to Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA) since 2001. For 2014, LSC will award TRLA 1-year grants for these migrant service areas. LSC intends to merge the seven migrant service area grants into one regional service area grant. Doing so will harmonize the grant structure with the longstanding delivery model. DATES: All comments must be received on or before the close of business on January 27, 2014. ADDRESSES: Written comments may be submitted to LSC by email to competition@lsc.gov (this is the preferred option); by submitting a form online at http://www.lsc.gov/contact-us; by mail to Legal Services Corporation, 3333 K Street NW., Third Floor, Washington, DC 20007, Attention: Reginald Haley; or by fax to 202–337– 6813. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Reginald J. Haley, Office of Program Performance, Legal Services Corporation, 3333 K St., NW., Washington, DC 20007; or by email at haleyr@lsc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The mission of LSC is to promote equal access to justice and to provide funding for high-quality civil legal assistance to low-income persons. Pursuant to its statutory authority, LSC designates service areas in U.S. states, territories, possessions, and the District of Columbia for which it provides grants to legal aid programs to provide free civil legal services. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 The LSC Act charges LSC with ensuring that ‘‘grants and contracts are made so as to provide the most economical and effective delivery of legal assistance to persons in both urban and rural areas.’’ 42 U.S.C. 2996f(a)(3). The LSC Act also required LSC to study the legal needs of migrants or seasonal farm workers and implement recommended approaches to meet their special legal needs. 42 U.S.C. 2996f(h). The regional approach to migrant delivery accomplished by merging the Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama migrant service areas would provide a more economical and effective delivery approach for serving the legal needs of migrants than a state-by-state delivery system would. This model serves two primary purposes—(1) it enables the grantee to pool the funds for these migrant service areas to provide services more effectively to respond to the needs of the migratory workers and families across the region, and (2) it enables LSC to fund a single entity to provide migrant services efficiently to all of these areas. LSC provides grants through a competitive bidding process, which is regulated by 45 CFR Part 1634. In 2013, LSC implemented a competitive grants process for 2014 calendar year funding that included, inter alia, the Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama migrant service areas. For 2014, LSC will award TRLA 1-year grants for the migrant service areas in Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama. These grants are effective January 1, 2014, through December 31, 2014. LSC intends to merge the Texas, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama migrant service areas into a single migrant service area and merge the 2014 grants to those service areas into a single grant beginning February 3, 2014. LSC invites public comment on this decision. Interested parties may submit comments to LSC no later than the close of business on January 27, 2014. More information about LSC can be found at: http://www.lsc.gov. Dated: December 20, 2013 Atitaya C. Rok, Staff Attorney.

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 (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 Standard specifies two paperwork requirements. The following 
sections describe who uses the information collected under each 
requirement, as well as how they use it. The purpose of the 
requirements is to reduce workers' risk of death or serious injury by 
ensuring that manlifts are in safe operating condition.
    Periodic Inspections and Records (paragraph (e)). This provision 
requires that each manlift be inspected at least once every 30 days and 
it also requires that limit switches shall be checked weekly. The 
manlift inspection is to cover at least the following items: Steps; 
step fastenings; rails; rail supports and fastenings; rollers and 
slides; belt and belt tension; handholds and fastenings; floor 
landings; guardrails; lubrication; limit switches; warning signs and 
lights; illumination; drive pulley; bottom (boot) pulley and clearance; 
pulley supports; motor; driving mechanism; brake; electrical switches; 
vibration and misalignment; and any ``skip'' on the up or down run when 
mounting a step (indicating worn gears). A certification record of the 
inspection must be prepared upon completion of the inspection. The 
record must contain the date of the inspection, the signature of the 
person who performed the inspection, and the serial number or other 
identifier of the inspected manlift.
    Disclosure of Inspection Certification Records. Employers are to 
maintain the certification record and make it available to OSHA 
compliance officers. This record provides assurance to employers, 
workers, and compliance officers that manlifts were inspected as 
required by the Standard. The inspections are made to keep equipment in 
safe operating condition thereby preventing manlift failure while 
carrying workers to elevated worksites. These records also provide the 
most efficient means for the compliance officers to determine that an 
employer is complying with the Standard.

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

    OSHA is requesting to retain its current burden hour estimate of 
37,801 hours.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Manlifts (29 CFR 1910.68).
    OMB Number: 1218-0226.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profits.
    Number of Respondents: 18,372.
    Frequency of Responses: On occasion; Monthly.
    Average Time per Response: Varies from 2 minutes (.03 hour) for an 
employer to disclose the inspection certification record to 1.05 hour 
to inspect a manlift.
    Estimated Total Burden Hours: 20,957.
    Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $0.
