The MSHA requires a mine operator to provide important safety and health protection to an underground coal miner who works on and around diesel-powered equipment. Engines powering diesel equipment are potential contributors to fires and explosion hazards in the confined environment of an underground coal mine where combustible coal dust and explosive methane gas are present. In addition, diesel equipment operating in an underground coal mine can pose serious health risks to miners from exposure to diesel exhaust emissions, including diesel particulates, oxides of nitrogen, SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Agency Information Collection Activities; Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request; DieselPowered Equipment in Underground Coal Mines Jkt 235001 PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and carbon monoxide. Diesel exhaust is a lung carcinogen in animals. This information collection pertains to diesel equipment maintenance and use; tests and maintenance of fire suppression systems on both the equipment and at fueling stations; and exhaust gas sampling. Records are required to document essential testing and maintenance of diesel-powered equipment are conducted regularly by a qualified person; any corrective action is taken; and a person performing covered maintenance, repairs, examinations, or tests is trained and qualified to perform such tasks. The subject information collection requirements are found in regulations 30 CFR 75.1901(a), Diesel fuel requirements; 75.1904(b)(4)(i), Underground diesel fuel tanks and safety cans; 75.1906(d), Transport of diesel fuel; 75.1911(j), Fire suppression systems for diesel-powered equipment and fuel transportation units; 75.1912(i), Fire suppression systems for permanent underground diesel fuel storage facilities; 75.1914(f)(2), (g), (h)(1), and (h)(2), Maintenance of diesel-powered equipment; sections 75.1915(b)(5), (c)(1), and (c)(2), Training and qualification of persons working on diesel-powered equipment. Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 sections 801(a) and 803(h) authorize this information collection. See 30 U.S.C. 811(a), 813(h). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1205–0119. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2015.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for 
the Diesel-Powered Equipment in Underground Coal Mines information 
collection requirements codified in regulations 30 CFR part 75. The 
MSHA requires a mine operator to provide important safety and health 
protection to an underground coal miner who works on and around diesel-
powered equipment. Engines powering diesel equipment are potential 
contributors to fires and explosion hazards in the confined environment 
of an underground coal mine where combustible coal dust and explosive 
methane gas are present. In addition, diesel equipment operating in an 
underground coal mine can pose serious health risks to miners from 
exposure to diesel exhaust emissions, including diesel particulates, 
oxides of nitrogen, and carbon monoxide. Diesel exhaust is a lung 
carcinogen in animals.
    This information collection pertains to diesel equipment 
maintenance and use; tests and maintenance of fire suppression systems 
on both the equipment and at fueling stations; and exhaust gas 
sampling. Records are required to document essential testing and 
maintenance of diesel-powered equipment are conducted regularly by a 
qualified person; any corrective action is taken; and a person 
performing covered maintenance, repairs, examinations, or tests is 
trained and qualified to perform such tasks.
    The subject information collection requirements are found in 
regulations 30 CFR 75.1901(a), Diesel fuel requirements; 
75.1904(b)(4)(i), Underground diesel fuel tanks and safety cans; 
75.1906(d), Transport of diesel fuel; 75.1911(j), Fire suppression 
systems for diesel-powered equipment and fuel transportation units; 
75.1912(i), Fire suppression systems for permanent underground diesel 
fuel storage facilities; 75.1914(f)(2), (g), (h)(1), and (h)(2), 
Maintenance of diesel-powered equipment; sections 75.1915(b)(5), 
(c)(1), and (c)(2), Training and qualification of persons working on 
diesel-powered equipment. Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 
sections 801(a) and 803(h) authorize this information collection. See 
30 U.S.C. 811(a), 813(h).
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1205-0119.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on August 31, 2015. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that 
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information
