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 process 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–95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, the reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, the 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 (see 29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires OSHA to obtain such information with a minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of effort in obtaining said information (see 29 U.S.C. 657). The collection of information requirements specified in the Cadmium in Construction Standard protect workers from the adverse health effects that may result from their exposure to cadmium. The major collection of information requirements of the Standard include: Conducting worker exposure monitoring, notifying workers of their cadmium exposures, implementing a written compliance program, implementing medical surveillance of workers, providing VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:28 Aug 14, 2018 Jkt 244001 examining physicians with specific information, ensuring that workers receive a copy of their medical surveillance results, maintaining workers’ exposure monitoring and medical surveillance records for specific periods, and providing access to these records by the worker who is the subject of the records, the worker’s representative, and other designated parties. 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 The Agency is not seeking a burdenhour adjustment and 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: Cadmium in Construction (29 CFR 1926.1127). OMB Control Number: 1218–0186. Affected Public: Business or other forprofits. Number of Respondents: 10,000. Frequency: On occasion; Quarterly; Semi-annually; Annually.

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 process 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-95) (44 
U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the 
desired format, the reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, the 
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 (see 29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires OSHA to obtain 
such information with a minimum burden upon employers, especially those 
operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent 
feasible unnecessary duplication of effort in obtaining said 
information (see 29 U.S.C. 657).
    The collection of information requirements specified in the Cadmium 
in Construction Standard protect workers from the adverse health 
effects that may result from their exposure to cadmium. The major 
collection of information requirements of the Standard include: 
Conducting worker exposure monitoring, notifying workers of their 
cadmium exposures, implementing a written compliance program, 
implementing medical surveillance of workers, providing examining 
physicians with specific information, ensuring that workers receive a 
copy of their medical surveillance results, maintaining workers' 
exposure monitoring and medical surveillance records for specific 
periods, and providing access to these records by the worker who is the 
subject of the records, the worker's representative, and other 
designated parties.

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

    The Agency is not seeking a burden-hour adjustment and 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: Cadmium in Construction (29 CFR 1926.1127).
    OMB Control Number: 1218-0186.

    Frequency: On occasion; Quarterly; Semi-annually; Annually.
    Average Time per Response: Varies from five minutes (.08 hour) for 
an employer to notify a worker with exposure monitoring results to 1.5
