SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 18, 2016, OSHA published a final rule revising and updating the general industry Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Protective Equipment (Fall Protection Systems) standards (29 CFR 1910, subparts D and I) (81 FR 82494) to provide workers with greater protections from slip, trip and fall hazards. This technical amendment adds to § 1910.8, which displays OSHA’s approved general industry collections of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1985 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the OMB control number for the new collection requirements in the final rule. Final subpart D contains three new collections of information. First, final § 1910.23(b)(10) requires that employers ensure any ladder with structural or SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\06JYR1.SGM 06JYR1 31253 jstallworth on DSK7TPTVN1PROD with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 128 / Thursday, July 6, 2017 / Rules and Regulations other defects be tagged immediately with ‘‘Dangerous: Do Not Use’’ or similar language and removed from service until ‘‘repaired . . . or replaced.’’ The information will alert employers and workers that the ladder is not safe and must not be used. Second, final § 1910.27(b)(1)(i) requires, before any rope descent system is used, that the building owner inform the employer in writing that the building owner has identified, tested, certified, and maintained each anchorage so it is capable of supporting at least 5,000 pounds (268 kg), in any direction for each employee attached. The information must be based on an annual inspection by a qualified person and certification of each anchorage by a qualified person, as necessary, and at least every 10 years. The information will assure employers and workers that the building owner has inspected, tested and certified the anchorage, which the employer may not own or have any control over, as safe to use. A related provision, final § 1910.27(b)(1)(ii), requires that the employer ensure no employee uses any anchorage before the employer has obtained written information from the building owner indicating that each anchorage meets the requirements of § 1910.27(b)(1)(i). The employer must keep the information for the duration of the job. The information will assure employers and workers that the anchorages employers use, but may not own or have any control over, are safe to use. Third, final § 1910.28(b)(1)(ii) specifies that when employers can demonstrate that it is not feasible or creates a greater hazard to use guardrail, safety net, or personal fall protection systems on residential roofs, they must develop and implement a written fall protection plan that meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1926.502(k) and training that meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1926.503(a) and (c). The information collection ensures that employers and workers will know what alternative measures will be used at a given worksite to provide an appropriate level of protection when conventional fall protection is not feasible. These requirements are contained in the Information Collection Request (ICR) approved by OMB under control number 1218–0199, which OSHA included in the final rule published in the Federal Register (81 FR 82978–80). The collections of information in final subpart D are necessary to ensure workers are protected from death or injury from falls from elevated heights. Final subpart I expands the existing collections of information contained in VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:53 Jul 05, 2017 Jkt 241001 the hazard assessment and verification requirements in 29 CFR 1910.132 to include assessments for workers who use personal fall protection systems (29 CFR 1910.140). These requirements are contained in the Information Collection Request (ICR) approved by OMB under control number 1218–0205, which OSHA included in the final rule published in the Federal Register (81 FR 82978–80). Additional public comment on the information collections in the final rule is not necessary. The public already has had the opportunity to comment on the collections of information and OMB has approved them. This revision of § 1910.8 is a purely technical step to increase public awareness of OMB’s approval of the collections of information. § 1910.8 OMB control numbers under the Paperwork Reduction Act.

Walking-Working Surfaces and Personal Protective Equipment (Fall 
Protection Systems) for General Industry; Approval of Collections of 
Information

AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 
Department of Labor.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This technical amendment revises an OSHA regulation to reflect 
the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) approval of the collections 
of information contained in the general industry Walking-Working 
Surfaces and Personal Protective Equipment (Fall Protection Systems) 
standards.

DATES: Effective July 6, 2017.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Todd Owen, OSHA, Directorate of 
Standards and Guidance, Room N-3609, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 
Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693-
2222.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 18, 2016, OSHA published a final 
rule revising and updating the general industry Walking-Working 
Surfaces and Personal Protective Equipment (Fall Protection Systems) 
standards (29 CFR 1910, subparts D and I) (81 FR 82494) to provide 
workers with greater protections from slip, trip and fall hazards. This 
technical amendment adds to Sec.  1910.8, which displays OSHA's 
approved general industry collections of information under the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1985 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the OMB 
control number for the new collection requirements in the final rule.
    Final subpart D contains three new collections of information. 
First, final Sec.  1910.23(b)(10) requires that employers ensure any 
ladder with structural or

[[Page 31253]]

other defects be tagged immediately with ``Dangerous: Do Not Use'' or 
similar language and removed from service until ``repaired . . . or 
replaced.'' The information will alert employers and workers that the 
ladder is not safe and must not be used.
    Second, final Sec.  1910.27(b)(1)(i) requires, before any rope 
descent system is used, that the building owner inform the employer in 
writing that the building owner has identified, tested, certified, and 
maintained each anchorage so it is capable of supporting at least 5,000 
pounds (268 kg), in any direction for each employee attached. The 
information must be based on an annual inspection by a qualified person 
and certification of each anchorage by a qualified person, as 
necessary, and at least every 10 years. The information will assure 
employers and workers that the building owner has inspected, tested and 
certified the anchorage, which the employer may not own or have any 
control over, as safe to use. A related provision, final Sec.  
1910.27(b)(1)(ii), requires that the employer ensure no employee uses 
any anchorage before the employer has obtained written information from 
the building owner indicating that each anchorage meets the 
requirements of Sec.  1910.27(b)(1)(i). The employer must keep the 
information for the duration of the job. The information will assure 
employers and workers that the anchorages employers use, but may not 
own or have any control over, are safe to use.
    Third, final Sec.  1910.28(b)(1)(ii) specifies that when employers 
can demonstrate that it is not feasible or creates a greater hazard to 
use guardrail, safety net, or personal fall protection systems on 
residential roofs, they must develop and implement a written fall 
protection plan that meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1926.502(k) and 
training that meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1926.503(a) and (c). The 
information collection ensures that employers and workers will know 
what alternative measures will be used at a given worksite to provide 
an appropriate level of protection when conventional fall protection is 
not feasible.
    These requirements are contained in the Information Collection 
Request (ICR) approved by OMB under control number 1218-0199, which 
OSHA included in the final rule published in the Federal Register (81 
FR 82978-80). The collections of information in final subpart D are 
necessary to ensure workers are protected from death or injury from 
falls from elevated heights.
    Final subpart I expands the existing collections of information 
contained in the hazard assessment and verification requirements in 29 
CFR 1910.132 to include assessments for workers who use personal fall 
protection systems (29 CFR 1910.140). These requirements are contained 
in the Information Collection Request (ICR) approved by OMB under 
control number 1218-0205, which OSHA included in the final rule 
published in the Federal Register (81 FR 82978-80).
    Additional public comment on the information collections in the 
final rule is not necessary. The public already has had the opportunity 
to comment on the collections of information and OMB has approved them. 
This revision of Sec.  1910.8 is a purely technical step to increase 
public awareness of OMB's approval of the collections of information.
