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 E:\FR\FM\03AUN1.SGM 03AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 150 / Friday, August 3, 2018 / Notices 1970 (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 information collection requirements in the DBCP Standard provide protection for workers from the adverse health effects associated with exposure to DBCP. In this regard, the DBCP Standard requires employers to: Monitor workers’ exposure to DBCP; monitor worker health; and provide workers with information about their exposures and the health effects of exposure to DBCP. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 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 After extensive research, OSHA found no U.S. employer who currently produces DBCP or DBCP-based end-use products, most likely because the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration suspension for this substance remains in effect; therefore, no cost or time burdens accrue to employers under the Standard. The agency requests OMB approval of the information collection provisions as a one hour burden under the paperwork requirements if EPA lifts the suspension or technology develops new applications for DBCP.

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

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

[[Page 38181]]

1970 (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

feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information 
(29 U.S.C. 657).
    The information collection requirements in the DBCP Standard 
provide protection for workers from the adverse health effects 
associated with exposure to DBCP. In this regard, the DBCP Standard 
requires employers to: Monitor workers' exposure to DBCP; monitor 
worker health; and provide workers with information about their 
exposures and the health effects of exposure to DBCP.

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

    After extensive research, OSHA found no U.S. employer who currently
