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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 02:54 Dec 13, 2014 Jkt 235001 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 entitled ‘‘Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories’’ (29 CFR 1910.1450; the ‘‘Standard’’) applies to laboratories that use hazardous chemicals in accord with the Standard’s definitions for ‘‘laboratory use of hazardous chemicals’’ and ‘‘laboratory scale.’’ The Standard requires these laboratories to maintain worker exposures at or below the permissible exposure limits specified for the hazardous chemicals in 29 CFR part 1910, subpart Z. The laboratories do so by developing a written Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) that describes the following: standard operating procedures for using hazardous chemicals; hazard-control techniques; equipment-reliability measures; worker information and training programs; conditions under which the employer must approve operations, procedures, and activities before implementation; and medical consultations and examinations. The CHP also designates personnel responsible for implementing the CHP, and specifies the procedures to be used to provide additional protection to workers exposed to particularly hazardous chemicals. Other information collection requirements of the Standard include: documenting exposure monitoring results; notifying workers in writing of these results; presenting specified information and training to workers; establishing a medical surveillance program for overexposed workers; providing required information to the physician; obtaining the physician’s written opinion on using proper respiratory equipment; and establishing, maintaining, transferring, and disclosing exposure monitoring and medical records.

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 Standard entitled ``Occupational Exposure to Hazardous 
Chemicals in Laboratories'' (29 CFR 1910.1450; the ``Standard'') 
applies to laboratories that use hazardous chemicals in accord with the 
Standard's definitions for ``laboratory use of hazardous chemicals'' 
and ``laboratory scale.'' The Standard requires these laboratories to 
maintain worker exposures at or below the permissible exposure limits 
specified for the hazardous chemicals in 29 CFR part 1910, subpart Z. 
The laboratories do so by developing a written Chemical Hygiene Plan 
(CHP) that describes the following: standard operating procedures for 
using hazardous chemicals; hazard-control techniques; equipment-
reliability measures; worker information and training programs; 
conditions under which the employer must approve operations, 
procedures, and activities before implementation; and medical 
consultations and examinations. The CHP also designates personnel 
responsible for implementing the CHP, and specifies the procedures to 
be used to provide additional protection to workers exposed to 
particularly hazardous chemicals.
    Other information collection requirements of the Standard include: 
documenting exposure monitoring results; notifying workers in writing 
of these results; presenting specified information and training to 
workers; establishing a medical surveillance program for overexposed 
workers; providing required information to the physician; obtaining the 
physician's written opinion on using proper respiratory equipment; and 
establishing, maintaining, transferring, and disclosing exposure 
monitoring and medical records. These collection of information 
requirements, including the CHP, control worker overexposure to 
hazardous laboratory chemicals, thereby preventing serious illnesses 
and death among workers exposed to such chemicals.

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 to 
protect workers, 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 extend the information collection requirements 
contained in the Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in 
Laboratories Standard (29 CFR 1910.1450). The Agency is requesting to 
increase the existing burden hour estimate for the collection of 
information requirements in the Standard. In this regard, the Agency is 
requesting to adjust the current burden hour estimate from 293,373 to 
332,350 hours a total increase of 38,977 hours.
    Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collections.
