General Working Conditions in Shipyard Employment; Extension of the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Approval of Information Collection (Paperwork) Requirements, 45900-45902 [2017-20981]

Download as PDF 45900 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 189 / Monday, October 2, 2017 / Notices OSHA staff determined that OSHA should grant the application to expand IAPMO’s NRTL recognition to include four of the eight requested standards. OSHA published the preliminary notice announcing IAPMO’s expansion application in the Federal Register on March 15, 2017 (82 FR 13868). The Agency requested comments by March 30, 2017, and received three comments in response to this notice. One comment supported IAPMO’s expansion application (OSHA–2013–0030–0010), while the other two (OSHA–2013–0030– 0008 and OSHA–2013–0030–0009) were not specifically related to it, but rather questioned the funding and oversight of the NRTL Program more generally. Because the comments were anonymous, the Agency could not respond directly to the commenters. However, the Agency reiterates that its NRTL procedures are governed by 29 CFR 1910.7 and notes that these procedures serve simply to protect workers under the OSH Act by allowing NRTLs to certify that a particular product complies with the requirements of one or more appropriate product safety test standards. OSHA now is proceeding with this final notice to grant expansion of IAPMO’s scope of recognition. To obtain or review copies of all public documents pertaining to IAPMO’s application, go to: http:// www.regulations.gov or contact the Docket Office, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–3653, Washington, DC 20210. Docket No. OSHA–2013–0030 contains all materials in the record concerning IAPMO’s recognition. II. Final Decision and Order OSHA staff examined IAPMO’s expansion application, its capability to meet the requirements of the test standards, and other pertinent information. Based on its review of this evidence, OSHA finds that IAPMO meets the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.7 for expansion of its recognition, subject to the limitation and conditions listed below. OSHA, therefore, is proceeding with this final notice to grant IAPMO’s scope of recognition. OSHA limits the expansion of IAPMO’s recognition to testing and certification of products for demonstration of conformance to the test standards listed in Table 1 below. TABLE 1—LIST OF APPROPRIATE TEST STANDARDS FOR INCLUSION IN IAPMO’S NRTL SCOPE OF RECOGNITION Test standard UL UL UL UL Test standard title 875 ......................................................................... 979 ......................................................................... 1241 ....................................................................... 1261 ....................................................................... sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES OSHA’s recognition of any NRTL for a particular test standard is limited to equipment or materials for which OSHA standards require third-party testing and certification before using them in the workplace. Consequently, if a test standard also covers any products for which OSHA does not require such testing and certification, a NRTL’s scope of recognition does not include these products. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) may approve the test standards listed above as American National Standards. However, for convenience, OSHA may use the designation of the standards-developing organization for the standard as opposed to the ANSI designation. Under the NRTL Program’s policy (see OSHA Instruction CPL 1–0.3, Appendix C, paragraph XIV), any NRTL recognized for a particular test standard may use either the proprietary version of the test standard or the ANSI version of that standard. Contact ANSI to determine whether a test standard is currently ANSI-approved. A. Conditions In addition to those conditions already required by 29 CFR 1910.7, IAPMO must abide by the following conditions of the recognition: 1. IAPMO must inform OSHA as soon as possible, in writing, of any change of ownership, facilities, or key personnel, VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:01 Sep 29, 2017 Jkt 244001 Standard Standard Standard Standard for for for for Electric Dry-Bath Heaters.

Electric Water Heaters for Pools and Tubs. and of any major change in its operations as a NRTL, and provide details of the change(s); 2. IAPMO must meet all the terms of its recognition and comply with all OSHA policies pertaining to this recognition; and 3. IAPMO must continue to meet the requirements for recognition, including all previously published conditions on IAPMO’s scope of recognition, in all areas for which it has recognition. Pursuant to the authority in 29 CFR 1910.7, OSHA hereby expands the scope of recognition of IAPMO, subject to the limitation and conditions specified above. III.

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–95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:01 Sep 29, 2017 Jkt 244001 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 that OSHA 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). The standard on General Working Conditions in Shipyard Employment (29 CFR part 1915, subpart F) covers provisions that address conditions and operations in shipyard employment that may produce hazards for workers. The subpart is comprised of 14 sections that include housekeeping; lighting; utilities; working alone; vessel radar and communication systems; lifeboats; medical services and first aid; sanitation; control of hazardous energy; safety color code for marking physical hazards; accident prevention signs and tags; retention of DOT markings, placards, and labels; motor vehicle safety equipment, operation and maintenance; and servicing multi-piece and single-piece rim wheels. 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 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. III.

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-95) (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 that OSHA 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).
    The standard on General Working Conditions in Shipyard Employment 
(29 CFR part 1915, subpart F) covers provisions that address conditions 
and operations in shipyard employment that may produce hazards for 
workers. The subpart is comprised of 14 sections that include 
housekeeping; lighting; utilities; working alone; vessel radar and 
communication systems; lifeboats; medical services and first aid; 
sanitation; control of hazardous energy; safety color code for marking 
physical hazards; accident prevention signs and tags; retention of DOT 
markings, placards, and labels; motor vehicle safety equipment, 
operation and maintenance; and servicing multi-piece and single-piece 
rim wheels.

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 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.

III. Proposed Actions

    OSHA is requesting that OMB extend its approval of the information 
collection requirements contained in subpart F of the General Working 
Conditions in Shipyard Employment Standard (29 CFR 1915). The Agency is 
proposing an adjustment decrease of 2,471 hours, from 101,376 to 98,905 
hours. The decrease in hours is a result of updated data showing a 
decrease in the number of small to large establishments covered by the 
standard.
    OSHA will summarize the comments submitted in response to this 
notice and will include this summary in the request to OMB to extend 
the approval of the information collection requirements.
