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 Standard entitled ‘‘Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories’’ (29 CFR 1910.1450; the ‘‘Standard’’) applies to laboratories that use hazardous chemicals in accordance with the Standard’s definitions for ‘‘laboratory use of hazardous chemicals’’ and ‘‘laboratory scale.’’ The Standard requires these laboratories to maintain worker exposures at or below the permissible exposure limits specified for the hazardous chemicals in 29 CFR part 1910, subpart Z. The laboratories do so by developing a written Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) that describes the following: Standard operating procedures for using hazardous chemicals; hazard-control techniques; equipment-reliability measures; worker information and training programs; conditions under which the employer must approve operations, procedures, and activities before implementation; and medical consultations and examinations. The CHP also designates personnel responsible for implementing the CHP, and specifies the procedures to be used to provide additional protection PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to workers exposed to particularly hazardous chemicals. Other information collection requirements of the Standard include: Documenting exposure monitoring results; notifying workers in writing of these results; presenting specified information and training to workers; establishing a medical surveillance program for overexposed workers; providing required information to the physician; obtaining the physician’s written opinion on using proper respiratory equipment; and establishing, maintaining, transferring, and disclosing exposure monitoring and medical records. This collection of information requirements, including the CHP, control worker overexposure to hazardous laboratory chemicals, thereby preventing serious illnesses and death among workers exposed to such chemicals. 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. OSHA is requesting an adjustment increase in the existing burden hour estimate for the collection of information requirements in the Standard. In this regard, the agency is requesting to increase the current burden hour estimate from 332,350 to 695,105 hours, a total adjustment of 362,755 hours. The increase is due to an increase in the worker and establishment estimates and underestimation of data during the prior ICR. OSHA will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice, and will include this summary in its request to OMB to extend the approval of the information collection requirements contained in the Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories Standard.

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 Standard entitled ``Occupational Exposure to Hazardous 
Chemicals in Laboratories'' (29 CFR 1910.1450; the ``Standard'') 
applies to laboratories that use hazardous chemicals in accordance with 
the Standard's definitions for ``laboratory use of hazardous 
chemicals'' and ``laboratory scale.'' The Standard requires these 
laboratories to maintain worker exposures at or below the permissible 
exposure limits specified for the hazardous chemicals in 29 CFR part 
1910, subpart Z. The laboratories do so by developing a written 
Chemical Hygiene Plan (CHP) that describes the following: Standard 
operating procedures for using hazardous chemicals; hazard-control 
techniques; equipment-reliability measures; worker information and 
training programs; conditions under which the employer must approve 
operations, procedures, and activities before implementation; and 
medical consultations and examinations. The CHP also designates 
personnel responsible for implementing the CHP, and specifies the 
procedures to be used to provide additional protection to workers 
exposed to particularly hazardous chemicals.
    Other information collection requirements of the Standard include: 
Documenting exposure monitoring results; notifying workers in writing 
of these results; presenting specified information and training to 
workers; establishing a medical surveillance program for overexposed 
workers; providing required information to the physician; obtaining the 
physician's written opinion on using proper respiratory equipment; and 
establishing, maintaining, transferring, and disclosing exposure 
monitoring and medical records. This collection of information 
requirements, including the CHP, control worker overexposure to 
hazardous laboratory chemicals, thereby preventing serious illnesses 
and death among workers exposed to such chemicals.

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.
    OSHA is requesting an adjustment increase in the existing burden 
hour estimate for the collection of information requirements in the 
Standard. In this regard, the agency is requesting to increase the 
current burden hour estimate from 332,350 to 695,105 hours, a total 
adjustment of 362,755 hours. The increase is due to an increase in the 
worker and establishment estimates and underestimation of data during 
the prior ICR.
    OSHA will summarize the comments submitted in response to this 
notice, and will include this summary in its request to OMB to extend 
the approval of the information collection requirements contained in 
the Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in Laboratories 
Standard.
