Background and Brief Description As mandated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Pub. L. 91–596), the mission of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is to conduct research and investigations on work-related disease and injury and to disseminate information for preventing identified workplace hazards (Sections 20 (a)(1) and (d)). NIOSH is proposing a Reinstatement with Changes to continue a two-year study to collect stakeholder feedback on the effectiveness of its products and their dissemination. This dual responsibility of NIOSH’s mission recognizes the need to translate research into workplace application if it is to impact worker safety and well-being. NIOSH, through its communication efforts, seeks to promote greater awareness of occupational hazards and their control, influence public policy and regulatory action, shape national research priorities, change organizational practices and individual behavior, and ultimately, improve American working life. NIOSH’s primary communication vehicle is its series of numbered publications catalogued by the Institute as Policy Documents, Technical Documents, and Educational Documents. The aforementioned types of documents are available to the public through the use of mailing lists, NIOSH eNews, the NIOSH Web site, promotion at conferences, and by other means. In FY 2015, combined digital downloads and hard copy distributions of NIOSH publications registered at over 790,000. Yet, these numbers tell little of whether the reports are reaching all of the appropriate audiences, or whether the information is perceived as credible and useful by the recipients. Therefore, a Customer Satisfaction Survey (CSS) was conducted in 2003 and a follow-up CSS in 2010 to assess customer satisfaction and perceived impact of NIOSH publications. The proposed survey seeks to update the data collected for the 2010 survey (OMB Control Number 0920– 0544, expiration date 4/30/10) and PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 56025 gather data on outreach initiatives NIOSH has undertaken in recent years. The findings from the study completed in 2010 confirmed that NIOSH continues to be a credible source of occupational safety and health information, NIOSH publications were being used more frequently than in previous years, and respondents are relying more on the NIOSH Web site and other electronic resources. However, the 2010 CSS also revealed that the percentage of respondents who looked to NIOSH for Occupational Safety and Health information dropped from 84% in 2003 to 76% in 2009 (2010 survey data collection). Results from the 2010 CSS suggest that NIOSH needs to collaborate more with stakeholder associations to assess the needs of those in the OSH community who are not using NIOSH resources. Since then, NIOSH has established a partner database, which documents the private companies, professional associations, and labor unions listed as partners on various projects. Another recommendation is that NIOSH develop strategies to increase awareness of electronic resources and newsletters and develop a broader range of tools that have direct application and provide clearer guidance on policy. The currently proposed Customer Satisfaction and Impact (CSI) Survey is a reinstatement of the 2010 study with changes to the instrument and data collection methods to account for new products and technologies that did not exist in 2010. It is an effort by the agency to obtain current estimates of consumer use/benefit from NIOSH communication products as a whole, as well as to determine the adequacy of the agency’s circulation/delivery practices in light of changing distribution approaches and technologies. The CSI will account for changes in NIOSH publications, digital product formats, and new dissemination channels emerging since the last collection of survey data. As offered with many NIOSH publications, the CSI will also solicit more audience-based information that reflects the new media environment. Such expansions will yield findings that show how well customer service practices at NIOSH have followed the 2003 and 2010 recommendations, as well as provide insights into how users seek and use NIOSH information in the current digital environment. NIOSH will direct the survey to members of the following occupational safety and health organizations: American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), American College of Occupational and Environmental E:\FR\FM\27NON1.SGM 27NON1 56026 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 226 / Monday, November 27, 2017 / Notices Medicine (ACOEM), American Association of Occupational Health Nurses (AAOHN), American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), American Insurance Association (AIA), Insurance Loss Control Association (ILCA) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). NIOSH will randomly sample within each of the five following occupational groups: AIHA, ACOEM, AAOHN, ASSE, and other (includes members of AIA, ILCA, and NFPA). The annual number of respondents is 1500. Each participant will complete one of the four data collection instruments, depending on whether they are identified as an ‘‘intermediary’’ or ‘‘employer’’ and whether they complete the full or short version. NIOSH estimates that it will take 312 total burden hours to complete information collections, compared to 205 burden hours estimated for the 2010 CSS.

Proposed Project

    Evaluation of Effectiveness of NIOSH Publications: NIOSH Customer 
Satisfaction and Impact (CSI) Survey (OMB Control Number 0920-0544, 
Expiration Date 4/30/2010)--Reinstatement with Changes--National 
Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for 
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    As mandated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Pub. 
L. 91-596), the mission of the National Institute for Occupational 
Safety and Health (NIOSH) is to conduct research and investigations on 
work-related disease and injury and to disseminate information for 
preventing identified workplace hazards (Sections 20 (a)(1) and (d)). 
NIOSH is proposing a Reinstatement with Changes to continue a two-year 
study to collect stakeholder feedback on the effectiveness of its 
products and their dissemination. This dual responsibility of NIOSH's 
mission recognizes the need to translate research into workplace 
application if it is to impact worker safety and well-being. NIOSH, 
through its communication efforts, seeks to promote greater awareness 
of occupational hazards and their control, influence public policy and 
regulatory action, shape national research priorities, change 
organizational practices and individual behavior, and ultimately, 
improve American working life. NIOSH's primary communication vehicle is 
its series of numbered publications catalogued by the Institute as 
Policy Documents, Technical Documents, and Educational Documents.
    The aforementioned types of documents are available to the public 
through the use of mailing lists, NIOSH eNews, the NIOSH Web site, 
promotion at conferences, and by other means. In FY 2015, combined 
digital downloads and hard copy distributions of NIOSH publications 
registered at over 790,000. Yet, these numbers tell little of whether 
the reports are reaching all of the appropriate audiences, or whether 
the information is perceived as credible and useful by the recipients. 
Therefore, a Customer Satisfaction Survey (CSS) was conducted in 2003 
and a follow-up CSS in 2010 to assess customer satisfaction and 
perceived impact of NIOSH publications. The proposed survey seeks to 
update the data collected for the 2010 survey (OMB Control Number 0920-
0544, expiration date 4/30/10) and gather data on outreach initiatives 
NIOSH has undertaken in recent years. The findings from the study 
completed in 2010 confirmed that NIOSH continues to be a credible 
source of occupational safety and health information, NIOSH 
publications were being used more frequently than in previous years, 
and respondents are relying more on the NIOSH Web site and other 
electronic resources. However, the 2010 CSS also revealed that the 
percentage of respondents who looked to NIOSH for Occupational Safety 
and Health information dropped from 84% in 2003 to 76% in 2009 (2010 
survey data collection). Results from the 2010 CSS suggest that NIOSH 
needs to collaborate more with stakeholder associations to assess the

environment. Such expansions will yield findings that show how well 
customer service practices at NIOSH have followed the 2003 and 2010 
recommendations, as well as provide insights into how users seek and

    NIOSH will direct the survey to members of the following
