Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 194 / Tuesday, October 7, 2014 / Notices 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). Certification of repair (§ 1910.177(d)(3)(iv)). This paragraph requires that when restraining devices and barriers are removed from service because they are defective, they shall not be returned to service until they are repaired and reinspected. If the repair is structural, the manufacturer or a Registered Professional Engineer must certify that the strength requirements specified in (§ 1910.177(d)(3)(i) of the Standard have been met. The certification records are used to assure that equipment has been properly repaired. The certification records also provide the most efficient means for OSHA compliance officers to determine that an employer is complying with the Standard. Marking or tagging of wheel components (§ 1910.177(e)(2)). This paragraph requires that defective wheels and wheel components ‘‘be marked or tagged unserviceable and removed from the service area.’’ Under this requirement, OSHA is providing employers with sufficient information from which they can derive the wording to use in marking the object or constructing a tag. Therefore, this provision imposes no paperwork burden because it falls within the portion of 5 CFR 1320(c)(2) that states, ‘‘The public disclosure of information originally supplied by the Federal government to the recipient for the purpose of disclosure to the public is not included within this definition [of ‘collection of information’]’’. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Oct 06, 2014 Jkt 235001 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 information collection requirements specified in the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard require employers to: develop and maintain exposure control plans; develop a housekeeping schedule; provide workers with Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) vaccinations, as well as post-exposure medical evaluations and follow-ups; maintain medical and training records for specified periods; and provide OSHA, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, workers and their authorized representatives with access to these records, HIV and HBV research laboratories and production facilities must also adopt or develop, and review at least once a year, a biosafety manual, and establish and maintain a sharps injury log for the recording of percutaneous injuries from contaminated sharps. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 • 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 The Agency is requesting an adjustment decrease in the number of burden hours from 14,518,778 to 5,528,994 hours. The Agency updated the industry profile and estimates that the number of facilities and workers affected by the Standard has increased. However, the Agency calculates an overall decrease in burden hours. This is primarily related to an administrative error found in the previous ICR which overestimated the burden hours and costs related to healthcare professional time associated with the Hepatitis B vaccination. Also, part of the decrease in burden hours is related to the determination that the training provision of the Standard, although still in effect, is not considered to be a collection of information. The operation and maintenance cost increased from $34,342,534 to $46,093,897 due to the increase in the cost of medical expenses associated with the Standard. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030). OMB Control Number: 1218–0180. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits. Number of Respondents: 691,669. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Total Responses: 17,815,712. Average Time per Response: Time per response varies from 5 minutes (.08 hour) to maintain records to 1.5 hours for employees to receive training or medical evaluations.

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 information collection requirements specified in the Bloodborne 
Pathogens Standard require employers to: develop and maintain exposure 
control plans; develop a housekeeping schedule; provide workers with 
Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) vaccinations, as well as post-exposure medical 
evaluations and follow-ups; maintain medical and training records for 
specified periods; and provide OSHA, the National Institute for 
Occupational Safety and Health, workers and their authorized 
representatives with access to these records, HIV and HBV research 
laboratories and production facilities must also adopt or develop, and 
review at least once a year, a biosafety manual, and establish and 
maintain a sharps injury log for the recording of percutaneous injuries 
from contaminated sharps.

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

    The Agency is requesting an adjustment decrease in the number of 
burden hours from 14,518,778 to 5,528,994 hours. The Agency updated the 
industry profile and estimates that the number of facilities and 
workers affected by the Standard has increased. However, the Agency 
calculates an overall decrease in burden hours. This is primarily 
related to an administrative error found in the previous ICR which 
overestimated the burden hours and costs related to healthcare 
professional time associated with the Hepatitis B vaccination. Also, 
part of the decrease in burden hours is related to the determination 
that the training provision of the Standard, although still in effect, 
is not considered to be a collection of information. The operation and 
maintenance cost increased from $34,342,534 to $46,093,897 due to the 
increase in the cost of medical expenses associated with the Standard.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Bloodborne Pathogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1030).
    OMB Control Number: 1218-0180.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profits.

    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Total Responses: 17,815,712.
    Average Time per Response: Time per response varies from 5 minutes
