This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Requirements for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Training Institute Education Centers Program and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Outreach Training Program information collection. The OSHA has two educational programs, the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education Centers Program and the OSHA Outreach Training Program (Outreach). To be a participant in the OTI Education Centers Program or the Outreach Training Program, an individual/organization must provide the OSHA with certain information. The requested information is necessary to evaluate the applicant organization and to implement, oversee, and monitor the OTI Education Centers and Outreach Training Programs, courses, and trainers. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because the OSHA is adding a form that will require OTI education centers to provide a listing of all authorized Outreach trainers to the National Office. Occupational Safety and Health Act section 21 authorizes this information collection. See U.S.C. 670. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number.
