Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Proposed Project Measuring Worker Well-being for Total Worker Health—New—National intended to generate data that can be used to validate a worker well-being survey instrument through testing of its psychometric properties. The survey includes questions on five domains of worker well-being including: worker evaluation and experiences with work; workplace physical environment and safety climate; organizational policies and culture; worker health status; and experiences outside of work (external context). For this study, the survey instrument will be programmed into a web-based survey that will be administered online to an existing nationwide survey panel of employed adults (KnowledgePanel®) hosted by our vendor, GfK. Deidentified data will be transmitted securely to RAND, and RAND researchers will analyze the data as a CDC contractor. The survey will be fielded to approximately 1,025 respondents in the GFK panel, and the expected burden per respondent for reading the email and completing the survey is 15 minutes or 0.25 hours of their time. This will be a one-time survey and panelists will not be asked to respond to this survey again in the future. The total estimated burden hours are 385 for reading the recruitment email and responding to the survey. There are no costs to the respondent other than their time.

Measuring Worker Well-being for Total Worker Health--New--National 
Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)--Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    As described in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (PL 
91-596), the mission of NIOSH is to conduct research and investigations 
on work-related disease and injury and to disseminate information for 
preventing identified workplace hazards (Sections 20 (a) (1) and (d), 
Attachment 1). NIOSH is requesting a one-year approval for this data 
collection.
    Measuring worker well-being is the first step towards improving 
workplace policies, programs, and practices to promote prevention of 
disease and injury.
    The Total Worker Health[supreg] Program within NIOSH has made 
worker well-being a key aspect of its mission. The Total Worker Health 
(TWH) Program encompasses policies, programs, and practices that 
integrate protection from work-related safety and health hazards with 
promotion of injury and illness prevention efforts to advance worker 
well-being. The goal of TWH is not only to prevent disease or injury, 
but also to promote a culture of safety and health and an enhancement 
of overall well-being.
    In order to promote and enhance worker well-being it is first 
necessary to develop and validate instruments aimed at measuring the 
concept. This study is intended to generate data that can be used to 
validate a worker well-being survey instrument through testing of its 
psychometric properties. The survey includes questions on five domains 
of worker well-being including: worker evaluation and experiences with 
work; workplace physical environment and safety climate; organizational 
policies and culture; worker health status; and experiences outside of 
work (external context).
    For this study, the survey instrument will be programmed into a
