Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 210 / Wednesday, November 1, 2017 / Notices 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. III. Proposed Actions OSHA is requesting an adjustment increase of 102,613 burden hours (from 2,646,702 hours to 2,749,315 hours). This increase is a result of updated data showing an increase in the number of affected low-impact establishments (from 435,063 establishments to 461,523 establishments). In addition, OSHA is requesting an adjustment increase of $52,265 in operation and maintenance costs (from $1,426,421 to $1,478,686) associated with the purchase of tags and ties by employers. This increase is also a result of updated data showing an increase in the number of affected lowimpact establishments. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

talents to a wide range of scientific and societal issues. NASA's 
mission to reach for new heights and reveal the unknown so that what we 
do and learn will benefit all humankind. NASA uses the vantage point of 
space to achieve with the science community and our partners a deep 
scientific understanding of our planet, other planets and solar system 
bodies, the interplanetary environment, the Sun and its effects on the 
solar system, and the universe beyond. Citizen science and 
crowdsourcing can support NASA's mission and purpose by providing new 
opportunities to explore our solar system and our own home planet like 
never before, producing critical data that expands our knowledge of the 
universe, and advancing our ability to provide societal benefit through 
the synergy of satellite and ground based observations.

II. Methods of Collection

    Citizen science and crowdsourcing collections submitted under this 
generic clearance can be stand-alone projects or

[[Page 50692]]

the methods may be incorporated into an existing or new project, 
including, but not limited to, projects in the following typology:
    [ssquf] Data gathering projects. These projects may include: (1) 
Observation, characterization and documentation of natural phenomena or 
general environmental health observations, opinions, or preferences or 
(2) surveying participants or screening environmental conditions, 
including using specialized equipment provided by project leaders to 
record and submit data, or submitting samples plus descriptors (e.g. of 
air or water) for testing. Data may be collected using technologies 
mentioned above, through structured data forms, surveys, focus groups 
or interviews, submitting photographs or other media, surveys or 
questionnaires, or providing written observations.
    [ssquf] Classification/problem solving projects. Participants' 
tasks may include: (1) Observation of recorded materials provided by 
project organizers (images, video, etc.) through structured data 
submission forms, surveys or questionnaires in an online or computer 
program, clicking boxes, highlighting parts of text or image, and 
providing comments and/or annotations; (2) Classification of images or 
sounds using structured data submission forms or clicking boxes in an 
online or computer program; (3) Transcribing information, by typing 
handwritten logs or notes; (4) Performing a function meant to generate 
human behavior data; or (5) Problem-solving or manipulation of data. 
Tasks 1-5 may be conducted via structured actions or instructions or 
through the use of ``human-based computational game'' or ``game with a 
purpose'', a human-based computational technique in which a 
computational process performs its function by presenting certain steps 
to humans in an entertaining way.
