Background and Brief Description OMB approval is requested for three years for this new information collection project. CDC will collect information from grantees funded under Grants for Injury Control and Research Centers (ICRC) for the Annual Progress Report (APR). The CDC and the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) began funding the ICRCs throughout the United States in 1987 to study ways to prevent injuries and towards stated grant objectives. The reporting templates will capture this information through the use of performance indicators (indicators that signify progress towards a goal) and outcomes of project activities and tasks. In addition, each grantee will complete a personnel and publication data collection form. Information will be transmitted to CDC electronically and via hard copy by email and postal mail respectively. Data collection will include 100% of population, no sampling. The data will be analyzed using descriptive and summary statistics, qualitative summary. The only cost to respondents will be time spent responding to the survey. violence and to work with community partners to put research findings into action. There are currently ten CDC-funded ICRCs, which are typically funded in five-year funding cycles. ICRCs endeavor to prevent injuries and violence while working to strengthen the injury and violence prevention infrastructure by catalyzing and integrating resources at the local, state and national levels. This collaborative approach is a vital component in the success of ICRCs’s efforts to make an impact on population-level reduction in injury-related harm that is critical to HHS objectives.

After analysis, NIOSH will use the information to develop a final report. This project will also help evaluate the influence of NIOSH products, services, and outputs on industry occupational safety and health practices. Under this project, NIOSH will conduct the following activities and data collections: (1) Company Pre-calls. Sampled companies will be contacted to identify the person who will complete the survey and to ascertain whether or not the company handles engineered nanomaterials. (2) Survey. A web-based questionnaire, with a mail option, will be administered to companies. The purpose of the survey is to learn directly from companies about their use of NIOSH materials and their occupational safety and health practices concerning engineered nanomaterials. A sample of 600 companies will be compiled from lists of industry associations, research reports, marketing databases, and web-based searches. Of the 600 selected companies we anticipate that 500 will complete the survey. The company pre-call is expected to require 5 minutes to complete. The survey is expected to require 20 minutes to complete; including the time it may take respondents to look-up and retrieve needed information. The estimated annualized burden hours for the respondents’ time to participate in this information collection is 217 hours. There are no costs to the responders other than their time.

Proposed Project

    Survey of Engineered Nanomaterial Occupational Safety and Health 
Practices--New--National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health 
(NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    As mandated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (PL 
91-596), the mission of the National Institute for Occupational Safety 
and Health (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). This dual responsibility recognizes the need to 
translate research into workplace application if it is to impact worker 
safety and well-being.
    Adhering to the mission, NIOSH seeks to collect new information 
through a project tilted ``Survey of Engineered Nanomaterial 
Occupational Safety and Health Practices.'' The goal of this project is 
to assess the relevance and impact of NIOSH's contribution to 
guidelines and risk mitigation practices for safe handling of 
engineered nanomaterials in the workplace. The intended use of this 
data is to inform NIOSH's research agenda to enhance its relevance and 
impact on worker safety and health in the context of engineered 
nanomaterials.
    NIOSH will survey companies who manufacture, distribute, fabricate, 
formulate, use or provide services related to engineered nanomaterials. 
The analysis will describe the survey sample, response rates, and types 
of company by industry and size. Further analysis will focus on 
identifying the types of engineered nanomaterials being used in 
industry and the types of occupational safety and health practices 
being implemented. After analysis, NIOSH will use the information to 
develop a final report. This project will also help evaluate the 
influence of NIOSH products, services, and outputs on industry 
occupational safety and health practices.
    Under this project, NIOSH will conduct the following activities and 
data collections:
    (1) Company Pre-calls. Sampled companies will be contacted to 
identify the person who will complete the survey and to ascertain 
whether or not the company handles engineered nanomaterials.
    (2) Survey. A web-based questionnaire, with a mail option, will be 
administered to companies. The purpose of the survey is to learn 
directly from companies about their use of NIOSH materials and their 
occupational safety and health practices concerning engineered 
nanomaterials.
    A sample of 600 companies will be compiled from lists of industry 
associations, research reports, marketing databases, and web-based 
searches. Of the 600 selected companies we anticipate that 500 will 
complete the survey. The company pre-call is expected to require 5 
minutes to complete. The survey is expected to require 20 minutes to 
complete; including the time it may take respondents to look-up and 
retrieve needed information. The estimated annualized burden hours for 
the respondents' time to participate in this information collection is 
217 hours. There are no costs to the responders other than their time.
