SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:22 Oct 21, 2014 Jkt 235001 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 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 Slings Standard (29 CFR 1910.184) specifies several collection of information (paperwork) requirements, depending on the type of sling (paragraph (e) of the Standard covers alloy steel chain slings; paragraph (f) covers wire rope slings; paragraph (g) covers metal mesh slings; paragraph (h) covers natural and synthetic fiber-rope slings; and paragraph (i) covers synthetic web slings). The purpose of each of these requirements is to prevent workers from using defective or deteriorated slings, thereby reducing their risk of death or serious injury caused by sling failure during material handling. The information on the identification tags, markings, and codings assist the employer in determining whether the sling can be used for the lifting task. The sling inspections enable early detection of faulty slings. The inspection and repair records provide employers with information about when the last inspection was done and about the type of repairs made. This information provides some assurance about the condition of the slings. These records also provide the most efficient means for an OSHA compliance officer to determine that an employer is complying with the Standard. Prooftesting certificates give employers, workers, and OSHA compliance officers assurance that the slings are safe to use. The certificates also provide the compliance officers with an efficient means to assess employer compliance with the Standard. II.

III. Proposed Actions OSHA is proposing to increase the existing burden hour estimate for the collection of information requirements specified by the Standard from 20,001 hours to 24,181, a total increase of 4,180 hours.

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 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 Slings Standard (29 CFR 1910.184) specifies several collection 
of information (paperwork) requirements, depending on the type of sling 
(paragraph (e) of the Standard covers alloy steel chain slings; 
paragraph (f) covers wire rope slings; paragraph (g) covers metal mesh 
slings; paragraph (h) covers natural and synthetic fiber-rope slings; 
and paragraph (i) covers synthetic web slings).
    The purpose of each of these requirements is to prevent workers 
from using defective or deteriorated slings, thereby reducing their 
risk of death or serious injury caused by sling failure during material 
handling. The information on the identification tags, markings, and 
codings assist the employer in determining whether the sling can be 
used for the lifting task. The sling inspections enable early detection 
of faulty slings. The inspection and repair records provide employers 
with information about when the last inspection was done and about the 
type of repairs made. This information provides some assurance about 
the condition of the slings. These records also provide the most 
efficient means for an OSHA compliance officer to determine that an 
employer is complying with the Standard. Proof-testing certificates 
give employers, workers, and OSHA compliance officers assurance that 
the slings are safe to use. The certificates also provide the 
compliance officers with an efficient means to assess employer 
compliance 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 proposing to increase the existing burden hour estimate for 
the collection of information requirements specified by the Standard 
from 20,001 hours to 24,181, a total increase of 4,180 hours. This 
increase in burden hours is a result of an adjustment in the number of 
slings (from 1,116,667 to 1,350,000).
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Slings (29 CFR 1910.184).
    OMB Control Number: 1218-0223.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profits; Not-for-profit 
organizations; Federal Government; State, Local, or Tribal Government.
    Number of Respondents: 1,350,000.
    Frequency of Response: On occasion.
    Total Responses: 297,676.
    Average Time per Responses: Varies from 1 minute (.02 hour) to 
maintain a certificate to 30 minutes (.50 hour) for a manufacturing 
worker to acquire information from a manufacturer for a new tag, make a 
new tag, and affix it to a sling.
    Estimated Total Burden Hours: 24,181.
