The PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3520, and its implementing regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, require Federal agencies to provide 60-days’ notice to the public to allow comment on information collection activities before seeking OMB approval of the activities. See 44 U.S.C. 3506, 3507; 5 CFR 1320.8 through 1320.12.

The summaries below describe the ICR that FRA will submit for OMB clearance as the PRA requires: Title: The Impact of Commute Times on the Fatigue and Safety of Locomotive Engineers. OMB Control Number: 2130–NEW. Abstract: Time-on-task and time awake are two well-known factors that contribute to fatigue. Time-on-task refers to the length of time a person has been performing a task, whereas time awake refers to the length of time since a person last slept. Both of these factors can have a detrimental effect on performance, with the risk of adverse safety events (e.g., crashes) increasing as the length of time that a person performs a task or remains awake increases. These factors also influence each other; that is, the negative effects of increasing time-on-task may become evident sooner if the person has also been awake for a long time. Drivers with longer commutes experience greater time awake and time-on-task than drivers with shorter commutes. A growing body of evidence from a number of industries (e.g., medical, mining, long-haul trucking) suggests that commuting time has a detrimental impact on driving performance, particularly when combined with nighttime shift work. However, the extent to which these factors impact the fatigue and safety of locomotive engineers remains unknown. Type of Request: New information collection. Affected Public: Railroad Workers. Forms: FRA F 245. Respondent Universe: 35,000 locomotive engineers. Frequency of Submission: Single submission per person. Reporting Burden: The estimated total annual burden is 1,750 hours across the 5,250 locomotive engineers (estimating a 15% response rate). Each locomotive engineer completes a single online VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 Oct 25, 2018 Jkt 247001 questionnaire and the questionnaire is estimated to take 20 minutes. Total Estimated Annual Responses: 5,250 responses. Total Estimated Annual Burden: 1,750 hours. Under 44 U.S.C. 3507(a) and 5 CFR 1320.5(b) and 1320.8(b)(3)(vi), FRA informs all interested parties that it may not conduct or sponsor, and a respondent is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
