To date, little empirical research has been conducted to address practical research questions related to each. Therefore, the current research task is designed to investigate research questions related to the practical purpose, implementation, and evaluation of each element: (1) how is each of these HSMS elements best executed within mining organizations?; (2) how do you know an element has been successfully implemented within the organization?; and (3) what are the barriers to implementing these HSMS elements within mining organizations? This study employs a strictly qualitative approach to answer the research questions. A qualitative approach allows researchers to probe participants and learn about their specific experiences through in-depth examples. A protocol that will be used during an interview and/or focus group was developed. The subject matter in the protocol is focused on implementing and evaluating specific elements within mine recruitment script. It is estimated that a sample of up to 100 individuals (approximately 34 per year) will agree to participate among a variety of mine sites. Participants will be between the ages of 18 and 75, currently employed, and living in the United States. Participation will require no more than 60 minutes of workers’ time (approximately five minutes for the informed consent process and 55 minutes for the interview or focus group—there is no cost to respondents other than their time). Upon collection of the data, researchers will analyze and determine the effect that each element has on a mine’s ability to develop, implement or maintain an HSMS. With that said, lines of theoretical inquiry will be used to inform the thinking behind the practical guidance ultimately provided to mining organizations. Essentially, best practices can be provided that are applicable across an HSMS, not respective to just one aspect or element. Therefore, the findings will be used to make an HSMS more feasible and applicable for the mining industry. managers’ HSMS and possible barriers to implementation and evaluation. NIOSH is seeking a three year approval for this project which will target mine sites for participation by reaching out to organizational leaders/ managers of health and safety at respective mines for their participation. Data collection, in the form of interviews and/or focus groups will occur to answer the questions for this study. Respondents targeted for this study include corporate or site mine managers (also referred to in some cases as leaders, executives, coordinators or supervisors). These individuals are responsible for the day-to-day administration and/or implementation of the HSMS. In some cases, more than one individual is responsible for certain aspects of the HSMS. Therefore, depending on how these responsibilities are designated at mine sites and how many of these leaders are interested at each mine site, researchers will either facilitate a single interview or a focus group with mine site leadership.

The case review system assures that each child has a case plan designed to achieve placement in a safe setting that is the least restrictive (most family-like) setting available and in close proximity to the child’s parental home, consistent with the best interest and special needs of the child. Through these requirements, States and Tribes also comply, in part, with title IV–B section 422(b) of the Act, which assures certain protections for children in foster care. The case plan is a written document that provides a narrative description of the child-specific program of care. Federal regulations at 45 CFR 1356.21(g) and section 475(1) of the Act delineate the specific information that should be addressed in the case plan. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) does not specify a recordkeeping format for the case plan nor does ACF require submission of the document to the Federal government. Case plan information is recorded in a format developed and maintained by the State or Tribal child welfare agency.

Proposed Project

    Contact Investigation Outcome Reporting Forms (OMB Control No. 
0920-0900, expiration date: October 31, 2017)- Revision -National 
Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Division 
of Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ), Centers for Disease Control 
and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Division of 
Global Migration and Quarantine (DGMQ) requests revision to a currently 
approved information collection, OMB Control Number 0920-0900, Contact 
Investigation Outcome Reporting Forms. CDC is requesting the addition 
of Ebola-specific information collection tools to supplement the CDC's 
routine contact investigation activities so that CDC can better assess 
the risk to individuals who may have been exposed to a confirmed case 
of Ebola while traveling to or within the United States. These forms 
were approved by OMB under an emergency clearance, OMB Control Number 
0920-1032. The additional forms to be added are as follows:
     Ebola Airline passenger exposure questionnaire--This 
contact investigation form gathers information from airline passengers 
who traveled on plane(s) and sat within a 3 foot area around the 
suspected case and travel companions of the suspected case to determine 
the level of exposure and risk, as well as other passengers who may 
have had contact with the case's bodily fluids. Information gathered in 
this form is shared with the CDC to determine risk level. Risk levels 
are outlined in CDC's Movement and Monitoring Guidance.
     Ebola exposure Assessment Flight Crew--The flight exposure 
questionnaire is used to ascertain the same relevant information 
included in the passenger questionnaire for all crew who worked on 
flight(s) and came into contact with Ebola patient(s).
     Ebola exposure Assessment Cleaning Crew--This form 
collects the same information as the flight crew exposure 
questionnaire, used to determine the level of exposure a member of the 
cleaning crew who serviced a flight with an ill patient(s).
     Ebola exposure Assessment Airport or other port of entry 
staff--This questionnaire is utilized for airport staff who may have 
come into contact with a person ill with Ebola. Airport staff members 
are identified through conversations with airport authority to 
determine which employees carried out tasks that would have put them in 
contact with the ill person or their body fluids.
     Passengers of other commercial conveyance Ebola exposure 
questionnaire--This questionnaire collects the same information as the 
airline passenger questionnaire but will be utilized for passengers of 
commercial conveyance that is land- or waterborne
     Finally, the introduction and confirmation script is to be 
used by CDC staff manning open call lines available for persons who 
traveled on planes that carried suspected or confirmed patients with 
Ebola. As with the other questionnaires, this script assesses the risk 
of a plan passenger who was not in the immediate vicinity of the Ebola 
patient but still has concerns about the level of exposure and risk of 
contracting the virus.
    CDC is not proposing any changes to the routine contact 
investigation forms already approved under this information collection 
request.
    The total burden associated with this revision is 10,949 hours, 
including both standard contact investigation forms and updated forms 
to account for Ebola transmission. There are no costs to respondents 
other than their time.
