SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD 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 collections of information 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Jul 20, 2016 Jkt 238001 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 basic purpose of the collections of information in the Standard is to document that employers in general industry are providing their workers with protection from exposure to hazardous asbestos. Asbestos exposure results in asbestosis, an emphysema-like condition; lung cancer; mesothelioma; and gastrointestinal cancer. Several provisions of the Standard are collections of information, including: Implementing an exposure monitoring program that notifies workers of their exposure monitoring results, establishing a written compliance program, and informing laundry personnel of the requirement to prevent release of airborne asbestos above the time-weighted average and excursion limit. Other collections of information in the Standard include: maintaining records of information obtained concerning the presence, location, and quantity of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) and/or presumed asbestos-containing materials (PACMs) in a building/facility; notifying housekeeping workers of the presence and location of ACMs and PACMs in areas they may occupy during their work; and using information, data, and analyses to demonstrate that PACMs do not contain asbestos. In addition, the collections of information in the Standard include: providing medical surveillance for workers potentially exposed to ACMs and/or PACMs, including administering a worker medical questionnaire, providing information to the examining physician, and providing the physician’s written opinion to the worker; maintaining records of exposure monitoring, objective data used for exposure determinations, and medical surveillance; and making specified records (e.g., exposure monitoring and medical surveillance records) available to designated parties. These collections of information permit employers, workers and their designated representatives, OSHA, and PO 00000 Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47441 other specified parties to determine the effectiveness of an employer’s asbestoscontrol program. Accordingly, the requirements ensure that workers exposed to asbestos receive all of the protections afforded by the Standard. II. Special Issues for Comment OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues: • Whether the proposed collections of information 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 collections of information, 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 The Agency is requesting an adjustment decrease of 6 burden hours (from 11,694 to 11,688 burden hours). The decrease is due to the removal of burden hours associated with OSHA requests to access records from employers. Usually, OSHA requests access to records during an inspection. Information collected by the Agency during the investigation is not subject to the PRA under 5 CFR 1320.4(a)(2). There is also an estimated increase in operation and maintenance costs of $38,624, from $925,026 to $963,650. The increase in operation and maintenance costs is due to the increase in medical exam costs, offset by a decrease in estimated costs for contract industrial hygiene services to conduct exposure monitoring sampling, due to the Agency’s use of a different data source to calculate the exposure monitoring sampling estimate. OSHA is providing the following summary information about the Asbestos in General Industry information collection: Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

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 collections of 
information 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 basic purpose of the collections of information in the Standard 
is to document that employers in general industry are providing their 
workers with protection from exposure to hazardous asbestos. Asbestos 
exposure results in asbestosis, an emphysema-like condition; lung 
cancer; mesothelioma; and gastrointestinal cancer.
    Several provisions of the Standard are collections of information, 
including: Implementing an exposure monitoring program that notifies 
workers of their exposure monitoring results, establishing a written 
compliance program, and informing laundry personnel of the requirement 
to prevent release of airborne asbestos above the time-weighted average 
and excursion limit. Other collections of information in the Standard 
include: maintaining records of information obtained concerning the 
presence, location, and quantity of asbestos-containing materials 
(ACMs) and/or presumed asbestos-containing materials (PACMs) in a 
building/facility; notifying housekeeping workers of the presence and 
location of ACMs and PACMs in areas they may occupy during their work; 
and using information, data, and analyses to demonstrate that PACMs do 
not contain asbestos. In addition, the collections of information in 
the Standard include: providing medical surveillance for workers 
potentially exposed to ACMs and/or PACMs, including administering a 
worker medical questionnaire, providing information to the examining 
physician, and providing the physician's written opinion to the worker; 
maintaining records of exposure monitoring, objective data used for 
exposure determinations, and medical surveillance; and making specified 
records (e.g., exposure monitoring and medical surveillance records) 
available to designated parties.
    These collections of information permit employers, workers and 
their designated representatives, OSHA, and other specified parties to 
determine the effectiveness of an employer's asbestos-control program. 
Accordingly, the requirements ensure that workers exposed to asbestos 
receive all of the protections afforded by the Standard.

II. Special Issues for Comment

    OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:
     Whether the proposed collections of information 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 collections of information, 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

    The Agency is requesting an adjustment decrease of 6 burden hours 
(from 11,694 to 11,688 burden hours). The decrease is due to the 
removal of burden hours associated with OSHA requests to access records 
from employers. Usually, OSHA requests access to records during an 
inspection. Information collected by the Agency during the 
investigation is not subject to the PRA under 5 CFR 1320.4(a)(2). There 
is also an estimated increase in operation and maintenance costs of 
$38,624, from $925,026 to $963,650. The increase in operation and 
maintenance costs is due to the increase in medical exam costs, offset 
by a decrease in estimated costs for contract industrial hygiene 
services to conduct exposure monitoring sampling, due to the Agency's 
use of a different data source to calculate the exposure monitoring 
sampling estimate.
    OSHA is providing the following summary information about the 
Asbestos in General Industry information collection:
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Asbestos in General Industry (29 CFR 1910.1001).
    OMB Control Number: 1218-0133.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits.
    Number of Respondents: 121.
    Frequency of Responses: Varies.
    Total Responses: 32,173.
    Average Time per Response: Varies.
    Estimated Total Burden Hours: 11,688.
