SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Slings Standard information collection requirements codified in regulations 29 CFR 1910.184. The Standard specifies several information collection requirements, depending on the type of sling. The purpose of each requirement is to prevent workers from using defective or deteriorated slings, thereby reducing the risk of death or serious injury caused by sling failure during material handling. Information on the identification tags, markings, and codings assists the employer in determining whether the sling can be used for the lifting task. Sling inspections enable early detection of faulty slings. Inspection and repair records provide the employer with information about when the last inspection was done and about the type of repairs made. This information provides some assurance about the condition of the slings. These records also provide the most efficient means for an OSHA compliance officer to determine whether an Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) covered employer is complying with the Standard. Proof-testing certificates give employers, workers, and OSHA compliance officers assurance that the slings are safe to use. The certificates also provide the compliance officers with an efficient means to assess employer compliance with the Standard. OSH Act sections 2(b)(9), 6, and 8(c) authorize this information collection. See 651(b)(9), 655, and 657(c). This information collection is subject to the PRA.
