SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Mine Safety and Health Administration, Labor. ACTION: Request for public comments. AGENCY: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A). This program helps to assure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) is soliciting comments on the information collection for Hazardous Conditions Complaints. DATES: All comments must be received on or before August 29, 2016. ADDRESSES: Comments concerning the information collection requirements of Under Section 103(g) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, as amended (Mine Act), a representative of miners, or any individual miner where there is no representative of miners, may submit a written or oral notification of an alleged violation of the Mine Act or a mandatory standard or that an imminent danger exists. The notifier has the right to obtain an immediate inspection by MSHA. A copy of the notice must be provided to the operator, with individual miner names redacted. MSHA regulations at 30 CFR part 43 implement Section 103(g) of the Mine Act. These regulations provide the procedures for submitting notification of the alleged violation and the actions that MSHA must take after receiving the notice. Although the regulations contain a review procedure (required by section 103(g)(2) of the Mine Act) whereby a miner or a representative of miners may in writing request a review if no citation or order is issued as a result of the original notice, the option is so rarely used that it was not considered in the burden estimates. mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:01 Jun 29, 2016 Jkt 238001 PO 00000 Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Incentives/ outlets test in 2017 20 57,774 II.

Background Section 317(c) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act), 30 U.S.C. 877(c), and 30 CFR 75.1702 prohibits persons from smoking or carrying smoking materials underground or in places where there is a fire or explosion hazard. Under the Mine Act, 30 U.S.C. 877(c) and 75.1702, coal mine operators are required to develop programs to prevent persons from carrying smoking materials, matches, or lighters underground and to prevent smoking in hazardous areas, such as in or around oil houses, explosives magazines or other areas where such practice may cause a fire or explosion. Section 75.1702–1 requires a mine operator to submit a smoking prevention plan to MSHA for approval under § 75.1702 to MSHA for approval. Section 103(h) of the Mine Act, 30 U.S.C. 813, authorizes MSHA to collect information necessary to carry out its duty in protecting the safety and health of miners. These information collection requirements help to ensure that a fire or explosion hazard does not occur. II.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    Under Section 103(g) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 
1977, as amended (Mine Act), a representative of miners, or any 
individual miner where there is no representative of miners, may submit 
a written or oral notification of an alleged violation of the Mine Act 
or a mandatory standard or that an imminent danger exists. The notifier 
has the right to obtain an immediate inspection by MSHA. A copy of the 
notice must be provided to the operator, with individual miner names 
redacted.
    MSHA regulations at 30 CFR part 43 implement Section 103(g) of the 
Mine Act. These regulations provide the procedures for submitting 
notification of the alleged violation and the actions that MSHA must 
take after receiving the notice. Although the regulations contain a 
review procedure (required by section 103(g)(2) of the Mine Act) 
whereby a miner or a representative of miners may in writing request a 
review if no citation or order is issued as a result of the original 
notice, the option is so rarely used that it was not considered in the 
burden estimates.

II. Desired Focus of Comments

     Suggest methods to enhance the quality, utility, and

techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
