Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 186 / Tuesday, September 25, 2018 / Notices daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES I. Background Section 101(c) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (Mine Act) allows the mine operator or representative of miners to file a petition to modify the application of any mandatory safety standard to a coal or other mine if the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) determines that: 1. An alternative method of achieving the result of such standard exists which will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded the miners of such mine by such standard; or 2. That the application of such standard to such mine will result in a diminution of safety to the miners in such mine. In addition, the regulations at 30 CFR 44.10 and 44.11 establish the requirements and procedures for filing petitions for modification. II. Petition for Modification Docket Number: M–2018–017–C. Petitioner: Raw Coal Mining Company, Inc., 356 South College Avenue, Bluefield, Virginia 24605. Mine: EDM No. 1 Mine, MSHA I.D. No. 46–09507, located in McDowell County, West Virginia. Regulation Affected: 30 CFR 75.1101– 1(b) (Deluge-type water spray systems). Modification Request: The petitioner requests a modification of the existing standard to permit the removal of blowoff dust covers from nozzles on delugetype water spray systems. The petitioner states that: (1) Sections 75.1101–1 through 75.1101–4 set forth various requirements regarding deluge-type water spray systems; among the requirements there is no mandate to inspect and functionally test those systems. The petitioner conducts a weekly inspection and functional test of the complete deluge-type water spray system at its EDM No. 1 Mine. (2) Currently, the petitioner complies with the requirements of section 75.1101–1(b) by providing each nozzle with a blow-off cover. The petitioner states that because of the frequent inspections and functional testing of the system, the blow-off dust covers are not necessary because the nozzles can be maintained in an unclogged condition through weekly use. Further, it is burdensome to recap the large number of blow-off dust covers after each weekly inspection and functional test. (3) Petitioner proposes the following alternative method of achieving the result of the standard in section 75.1101–1(b), insofar as it requires that nozzles be provided with blow-off dust covers: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Sep 24, 2018 Jkt 244001 (a) Continue weekly inspection and functional testing of the complete deluge-type water spray system; and (b) Remove blow-off dust covers from the nozzles. The petitioner asserts that the proposed alternative method will at all times guarantee no less than the same measure of protection afforded by the standard. Patricia W. Silvey, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Operations, Mine Safety and Health Administration. 48457 This new, transformative strategy focuses on three key inter-related areas—security, procurement, and workforce—necessary to drive cloud adoption through building knowledge in government and removing burdensome policy barriers. This strategy will be available for review and public comment at https://cloud.cio.gov/. Suzette Kent, U.S. Federal Chief Information Officer.
