SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 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 accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (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 business, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). The information collection requirements specified in the 13 Carcinogens Standard protect workers from the adverse health effects that may result from their exposure to the specified carcinogens. The following is a brief description of the collection of information requirements contained in the 13 Carcinogens Standard: Establishing and implementing a medical surveillance program for workers assigned to enter regulated areas; informing workers of their medical examination results; and providing workers with access to their medical records. Further, employers must retain worker medical records for specified time periods and make them available upon request to OSHA and NIOSH. 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 the proper performance of the Agency’s functions, including whether the information is useful; VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:55 Jun 18, 2018 Jkt 244001 • 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 the approval of the information collection requirements contained in the 13 Carcinogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1003). OSHA is requesting an adjustment increase of 67 hours (from 1,493 hours to 1,560 hours). The increase is a result of a slight growth in the number of establishments affected by the Standards from 97 to 101. The Agency will summarize any comments submitted in response to this notice and will include this summary in its request to OMB. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Title: 13 Carcinogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1003). OMB Control Number: 1218–0085. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits. Number of Respondents: 101. Frequency of Responses: On occasion, annually. Total Number of Responses: 2,291. Average Time per Response: Time per response ranges from approximately 5 minutes (for employers to maintain records) to 2 hours (for worker medical surveillance). Estimated Total Burden Hours: 1,560 hours. Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $115,370. IV.

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 accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (PRA) (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 business, and to reduce to 
the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in 
obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657).
    The information collection requirements specified in the 13 
Carcinogens Standard protect workers from the adverse health effects 
that may result from their exposure to the specified carcinogens. The 
following is a brief description of the collection of information 
requirements contained in the 13 Carcinogens Standard: Establishing and 
implementing a medical surveillance program for workers assigned to 
enter regulated areas; informing workers of their medical examination 
results; and providing workers with access to their medical records. 
Further, employers must retain worker medical records for specified 
time periods and make them available upon request to OSHA and NIOSH.

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 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 that OMB extend the approval of the information 
collection requirements contained in the 13 Carcinogens Standard (29 
CFR 1910.1003). OSHA is requesting an adjustment increase of 67 hours 
(from 1,493 hours to 1,560 hours). The increase is a result of a slight 
growth in the number of establishments affected by the Standards from 
97 to 101.
    The Agency will summarize any comments submitted in response to 
this notice and will include this summary in its request to OMB.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: 13 Carcinogens Standard (29 CFR 1910.1003).
    OMB Control Number: 1218-0085.
    Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits.
    Number of Respondents: 101.
    Frequency of Responses: On occasion, annually.
    Total Number of Responses: 2,291.
    Average Time per Response: Time per response ranges from 
approximately 5 minutes (for employers to maintain records) to 2 hours 
(for worker medical surveillance).
    Estimated Total Burden Hours: 1,560 hours.
    Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $115,370.
