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 information collection requirements in accord with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (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 PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 OSHA to 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). Paragraph (b)(1) of the Standard 29 CFR 1926.251 requires that alloy steel chains have permanently affixed, durable identification tags stating size, grade, rated capacity and sling manufacturer. Paragraph (b)(6)(i) requires the employer to make a thorough periodic inspection of alloy steel chain slings in use on a regular basis, but at least once a year. Paragraph (b)(6)(ii) requires the employer to make and maintain a record of the most recent month in which each alloy steel chain was inspected and make the record available for examination. Paragraph (c)(15)(ii) requires that all welded end attachments of wire rope slings be proof tested by the manufacturer at twice their rated capacity prior to initial use, and that the employer retain a certificate of the proof test and make it available for examination. Paragraphs (e)(1)(i), (ii), and (iii) require that synthetic web slings be marked or coded to show the manufacturer’s name or trademark, the rated capacity for the type of hitch and the type of synthetic webbing material. Paragraph (f)(2) requires that all hooks for which no applicable manufacturer’s recommendations are available be tested twice before they are put into use. The employer shall maintain a record of the dates and results of the tests. II. Special Issues for Comment OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues: • Whether the proposed information collection requirements 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 information collection requirements, 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.

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 information 
collection requirements in accord with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 
1995 (PRA) (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 OSHA to 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).
    Paragraph (b)(1) of the Standard 29 CFR 1926.251 requires that 
alloy steel chains have permanently affixed, durable identification 
tags stating size, grade, rated capacity and sling manufacturer. 
Paragraph (b)(6)(i) requires the employer to make a thorough periodic 
inspection of alloy steel chain slings in use on a regular basis, but 
at least once a year. Paragraph (b)(6)(ii) requires the employer to 
make and maintain a record of the most recent month in which each alloy 
steel chain was inspected and make the record available for 
examination.
    Paragraph (c)(15)(ii) requires that all welded end attachments of 
wire rope slings be proof tested by the manufacturer at twice their 
rated capacity prior to initial use, and that the employer retain a 
certificate of the proof test and make it available for examination.
    Paragraphs (e)(1)(i), (ii), and (iii) require that synthetic web 
slings be marked or coded to show the manufacturer's name or trademark, 
the rated capacity for the type of hitch and the type of synthetic 
webbing material.
    Paragraph (f)(2) requires that all hooks for which no applicable 
manufacturer's recommendations are available be tested twice before 
they are put into use. The employer shall maintain a record of the 
dates and results of the tests.

II. Special Issues for Comment

    OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:
     Whether the proposed information collection requirements 
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 information collection requirements, 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.

[[Page 18935]]

III. Proposed Actions

    OSHA is requesting that OMB extend its approval of the information 
collection requirements contained in the Standard on Rigging Equipment 
for Material Handling (29 CFR 1926.251). The Agency is requesting an 
increase in the burden hours from 51,815 burden hours to 52,428 hours. 
This increase is due to the additional marking requirements for wire 
rope slings.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Rigging Equipment for Material Handling (29 CFR 1926.251).
    OMB Control Number: 1218-0233.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profits.
    Number of Respondents: 1,220,910.
    Total Responses: 278,343.
    Frequency of Responses: On occasion.
    Average Time per Response: Average of 3 minutes (.05 hour) for an 
employer to maintain and disclose a certificate to 30 minutes (.50 
hour) for an employer to acquire information and make a tag for a 
sling.
    Estimated Total Burden Hours: 52,428.
    Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $0.
