SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Occupational Safety and Health Onsite Consultation Agreements information collection. The OSHA Onsite Consultation Service Program offers free and confidential advice to small and medium-sized businesses in all States across the country, with priority given to high-hazard worksites. The requirements specified in the Onsite Consultation regulations for cooperative agreements, 29 CFR part 1908, are necessary to ensure uniform delivery of onsite consultation services nationwide. The regulatory procedures specify the activities carried out by State Onsite Consultation Programs funded by the Federal government, as well as the responsibilities of employers who receive onsite consultation services. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because the OSHA is making minor edits to the Safety and Health Program Assessment Worksheet, Form OSHA–33, that reflect new terminology and revised requirements associated with the revised 2012 OSHA Hazard Communication Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1200. Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 sections 7(c)(1) and 21(c) authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 656(c)(1) and 670(c). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:38 Nov 02, 2018 Jkt 247001 notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1218–0110. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on March 30, 2018 (83 FR 13792). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218–0110. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Telephone: 202–693–0081 (this is not a toll-free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Background The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000, as amended (42 U.S.C. 7384 et seq.), was originally enacted on October 30, 2000, and the primary responsibility E:\FR\FM\05NON1.SGM 05NON1 55402 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 214 / Monday, November 5, 2018 / Notices for administering EEOICPA was assigned to the Department of Labor (DOL) by Executive Order 13179 (65 FR 77487). In section 2(c)(vii) of that Executive Order, DOE was directed to publish a list in the Federal Register of Atomic Weapons Employer (AWE) facilities, DOE facilities, and facilities owned and operated by a Beryllium Vendor (as those terms are defined in sections 7384l(5), 7384l(12) and 7384l(6) of EEOICPA, respectively). Pursuant to this direction, DOE published a list of these three types of facilities covered under EEOICPA on January 17, 2001 (66 FR 4003), and subsequently revised and republished the entire list on June 11, 2001 (66 FR 31218), December 27, 2002 (67 FR 79068), July 21, 2003 (68 FR 43095) and August 23, 2004 (69 FR 51825). In subsequent notices published on November 30, 2005 (70 FR 71815), June 28, 2007 (72 FR 35448), April 9, 2009 (74 FR 16191), August 3, 2010 (75 FR 45608), May 26, 2011 (76 FR 30695), February 6, 2012 (77 FR 5781), February 11, 2013 (78 FR 9678), July 16, 2015 (80 FR 42094) and February 17, 2016 (81 FR 8060), DOE further revised the August 23, 2004 list by removing a total of 21 AWE facilities, and formally designating one additional AWE facility, without republishing the list in its entirety. Following the amendments to EEOICPA that were enacted as subtitle E of Title XXXI of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005, Public Law 108–375, 118 Stat. 1811, 2178 (October 28, 2004), OWCP promulgated final regulations governing its expanded responsibilities under EEOICPA on December 29, 2006 (71 FR 78520). One of those regulations, 20 CFR 30.5(x)(2), indicates that OWCP has adopted the list of DOE facilities that was published by DOE on August 23, 2004, and notes that OWCP ‘‘will periodically update this list as it deems appropriate in its sole discretion by publishing a revised list of covered [DOE] facilities in the Federal Register.’’ In making these updates, § 30.5(x)(1) specifies that the Director of OWCP is solely responsible for determining if a particular work site under consideration meets the statutory definition of a Department of Energy facility. This sole responsibility is derived from the grant of primary authority to DOL to administer the EEOICPA claims process contained in section 2(a)(i) of Executive Order 13179. II. Purpose Since OWCP last published a notice listing all DOE facilities covered under EEOICPA in the January 20, 2015 Federal Register, the Director of OWCP VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:38 Nov 02, 2018 Jkt 247001 has made a number of determinations in connection with claims filed under EEOICPA. Those determinations are briefly described in this Supplementary Information and are memorialized in the two updated lists of DOE facilities published by OWCP today. Specifically, the Director of OWCP has determined that the Enewetak RADLAB, located on Enewetak Atoll and now within the Republic of the Marshall Islands, meets the definition of a Department of Energy facility for the purposes of claims filed under EEOICPA because a predecessor agency of DOE entered into a contract with an entity to provide radiological support during the remediation of the Pacific Proving Ground by the Defense Department. In addition, OWCP’s research has led the Director to clarify or otherwise modify the designation of two other work sites that have appeared in OWCP’s prior published lists. The first of these appears in List 1 published below as the Dayton Project, and the Director has modified the designation for this multiple-location work site so it includes another location in Dayton, Ohio known as floors 4, 5 and 6 of the Warehouse located at 601 East Third Street because OWCP’s research shows that the DOE contractor for the Dayton Project also performed work under a contract with a predecessor agency of DOE at that additional location. This expansion does not have any effect on the other locations associated with the Dayton Project, or on the covered time period for the Dayton Project. The Director has also clarified the designation of a second work site, which previously appeared in List 1 as the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. This work site now appears as the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park, California in this publication. This clarification does not have any effect on the status of the work site in question, and is only intended to more precisely identify that facility and its location. And finally, OWCP has moved one work site that appeared in previous publications in List 2 to List 1 in this publication. The Middlesex Municipal Landfill in Middlesex, New Jersey now appears in the list of work sites that have only been DOE facilities following DOE’s decision to remove that work site’s status as an AWE facility in its July 16, 2015 Federal Register notice. This move from List 2 to List 1 does not have any effect on the status of the work site as a Department of Energy facility for remediation purposes in 1984 and 1986. By updating the two lists found below, OWCP is presenting the public PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 with the most current listing of DOE facilities in order to assist potential claimants and their families. OWCP is continuing its efforts in this area as it adjudicates claims filed under EEOICPA, and further revisions of these lists should be expected. Although DOE maintains a website (https:// ehss.energy.gov/Search/Facility/ findfacility.aspx) that provides information on AWE facilities, Beryllium Vendor facilities and DOE facilities to the public, the information on that website regarding DOE facilities should not be relied upon as it may not be up to date, nor is it binding on OWCP’s adjudication of claims filed under EEOICPA. Instead, OWCP is solely authorized to give the public notice of the Director’s determinations regarding DOE facilities. III. Introduction to the Lists The five complete lists previously published by DOE included all three types of work sites described in Executive Order 13179, i.e., AWE facilities, Beryllium Vendor facilities, and DOE facilities. On the other hand, the lists published on June 23, 2009, November 24, 2010, March 6, 2012, April 8, 2013, January 20, 2015 and again today by OWCP only include work sites that meet the definition of a Department of Energy facility, because the authority to designate both AWE facilities and Beryllium Vendor facilities has been granted to DOE. However, since some work sites can meet the definition of more than just one type of covered work site during either the same or differing time periods, simply presenting one list of DOE facilities (without also differentiating among them in some easily understood fashion) could lead the reader to wrongly conclude that a listed work site has always been a DOE facility when, in fact, it only had that status during a brief period. To lessen the potential for this type of misunderstanding, OWCP has decided to continue its practice of presenting two separate lists of DOE facilities. The first list consists exclusively of work sites that have only been DOE facilities for purposes of coverage under EEOICPA, and the second list consists of work sites that have also been at least one other type of covered work site in addition to a DOE facility. To see what other types of covered work sites the DOE facilities appearing in the second list are or have been, readers can refer to the Federal Register notices published by DOE on August 23, 2004 (69 FR 51825), November 30, 2005 (70 FR 71815), June 28, 2007 (72 FR 35448), April 9, 2009 (74 FR 16191), August 3, E:\FR\FM\05NON1.SGM 05NON1 55403 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 214 / Monday, November 5, 2018 / Notices 2010 (75 FR 45608), May 26, 2011 (76 FR 30695), February 6, 2012 (77 FR 5781), February 11, 2013 (78 FR 9678), July 16, 2015 (80 FR 42094) and February 17, 2016 (81 FR 8060). Since covered time periods for a particular DOE facility are statutorily limited to periods during which ‘‘operations’’ are or were performed by or on behalf of DOE (or its predecessor agencies) at that DOE facility, and when DOE (or its predecessor agencies) either had a proprietary interest in the facility or had entered into a particular type of contract with an entity regarding the facility, the lists below include date ranges during which covered employment at each work site could have been performed. These date ranges, however, often do not reflect the exact day and month that a work site either acquired or lost its status as a DOE facility, and are not considered binding on OWCP in its adjudication of individual claims under EEOICPA. Rather, they are presented in this notice for the sole purpose of informing the public of the current results of OWCP’s research into the operational histories of these work sites, some of which extend back to the establishment of the Manhattan Engineer District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on August 13, 1942. OWCP’s efforts in this area are continuing, and it expects that the date ranges included in this notice will change with the publication of future notices. DOE facilities appearing on the lists that have undergone environmental remediation at the direction of or directly by DOE are identified by the following symbol—†—after the date range during which such environmental remediation occurred. During those periods, only the work of employees of DOE contractors who actually performed the remediation is ‘‘covered work’’ under EEOICPA.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act 
of 2000, as amended (42 U.S.C. 7384 et seq.), was originally enacted on 
October 30, 2000, and the primary responsibility

[[Page 55402]]

for administering EEOICPA was assigned to the Department of Labor (DOL) 
by Executive Order 13179 (65 FR 77487). In section 2(c)(vii) of that 
Executive Order, DOE was directed to publish a list in the Federal 
Register of Atomic Weapons Employer (AWE) facilities, DOE facilities, 
and facilities owned and operated by a Beryllium Vendor (as those terms 
are defined in sections 7384l(5), 7384l(12) and 7384l(6) of EEOICPA, 
respectively). Pursuant to this direction, DOE published a list of 
these three types of facilities covered under EEOICPA on January 17, 
2001 (66 FR 4003), and subsequently revised and republished the entire 
list on June 11, 2001 (66 FR 31218), December 27, 2002 (67 FR 79068), 
July 21, 2003 (68 FR 43095) and August 23, 2004 (69 FR 51825). In 
subsequent notices published on November 30, 2005 (70 FR 71815), June 
28, 2007 (72 FR 35448), April 9, 2009 (74 FR 16191), August 3, 2010 (75 
FR 45608), May 26, 2011 (76 FR 30695), February 6, 2012 (77 FR 5781), 
February 11, 2013 (78 FR 9678), July 16, 2015 (80 FR 42094) and 
February 17, 2016 (81 FR 8060), DOE further revised the August 23, 2004 
list by removing a total of 21 AWE facilities, and formally designating 
one additional AWE facility, without republishing the list in its 
entirety.
    Following the amendments to EEOICPA that were enacted as subtitle E 
of Title XXXI of the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization 
Act for Fiscal Year 2005, Public Law 108-375, 118 Stat. 1811, 2178 
(October 28, 2004), OWCP promulgated final regulations governing its 
expanded responsibilities under EEOICPA on December 29, 2006 (71 FR 
78520). One of those regulations, 20 CFR 30.5(x)(2), indicates that 
OWCP has adopted the list of DOE facilities that was published by DOE 
on August 23, 2004, and notes that OWCP ``will periodically update this 
list as it deems appropriate in its sole discretion by publishing a 
revised list of covered [DOE] facilities in the Federal Register.'' In 
making these updates, Sec.  30.5(x)(1) specifies that the Director of 
OWCP is solely responsible for determining if a particular work site 
under consideration meets the statutory definition of a Department of 
Energy facility. This sole responsibility is derived from the grant of 
primary authority to DOL to administer the EEOICPA claims process 
contained in section 2(a)(i) of Executive Order 13179.

II. Purpose

    Since OWCP last published a notice listing all DOE facilities 
covered under EEOICPA in the January 20, 2015 Federal Register, the 
Director of OWCP has made a number of determinations in connection with 
claims filed under EEOICPA. Those determinations are briefly described 
in this Supplementary Information and are memorialized in the two 
updated lists of DOE facilities published by OWCP today.
    Specifically, the Director of OWCP has determined that the Enewetak 
RADLAB, located on Enewetak Atoll and now within the Republic of the 
Marshall Islands, meets the definition of a Department of Energy 
facility for the purposes of claims filed under EEOICPA because a 
predecessor agency of DOE entered into a contract with an entity to 
provide radiological support during the remediation of the Pacific 
Proving Ground by the Defense Department. In addition, OWCP's research 
has led the Director to clarify or otherwise modify the designation of 
two other work sites that have appeared in OWCP's prior published 
lists. The first of these appears in List 1 published below as the 
Dayton Project, and the Director has modified the designation for this 
multiple-location work site so it includes another location in Dayton, 
Ohio known as floors 4, 5 and 6 of the Warehouse located at 601 East 
Third Street because OWCP's research shows that the DOE contractor for 
the Dayton Project also performed work under a contract with a 
predecessor agency of DOE at that additional location. This expansion 
does not have any effect on the other locations associated with the 
Dayton Project, or on the covered time period for the Dayton Project. 
The Director has also clarified the designation of a second work site, 
which previously appeared in List 1 as the Stanford Linear Accelerator 
Center, Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. This work site 
now appears as the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park, 
California in this publication. This clarification does not have any 
effect on the status of the work site in question, and is only intended 
to more precisely identify that facility and its location. And finally, 
OWCP has moved one work site that appeared in previous publications in 
List 2 to List 1 in this publication. The Middlesex Municipal Landfill 
in Middlesex, New Jersey now appears in the list of work sites that 
have only been DOE facilities following DOE's decision to remove that 
work site's status as an AWE facility in its July 16, 2015 Federal 
Register notice. This move from List 2 to List 1 does not have any 
effect on the status of the work site as a Department of Energy 
facility for remediation purposes in 1984 and 1986.
    By updating the two lists found below, OWCP is presenting the 
public with the most current listing of DOE facilities in order to 
assist potential claimants and their families. OWCP is continuing its 
efforts in this area as it adjudicates claims filed under EEOICPA, and 
further revisions of these lists should be expected. Although DOE 
maintains a website (https://ehss.energy.gov/Search/Facility/findfacility.aspx) that provides information on AWE facilities, 
Beryllium Vendor facilities and DOE facilities to the public, the 
information on that website regarding DOE facilities should not be 
relied upon as it may not be up to date, nor is it binding on OWCP's 
adjudication of claims filed under EEOICPA. Instead, OWCP is solely 
authorized to give the public notice of the Director's determinations 
regarding DOE facilities.

III. Introduction to the Lists

    The five complete lists previously published by DOE included all 
three types of work sites described in Executive Order 13179, i.e., AWE 
facilities, Beryllium Vendor facilities, and DOE facilities. On the 
other hand, the lists published on June 23, 2009, November 24, 2010, 
March 6, 2012, April 8, 2013, January 20, 2015 and again today by OWCP 
only include work sites that meet the definition of a Department of 
Energy facility, because the authority to designate both AWE facilities 
and Beryllium Vendor facilities has been granted to DOE. However, since 
some work sites can meet the definition of more than just one type of 
covered work site during either the same or differing time periods, 
simply presenting one list of DOE facilities (without also 
differentiating among them in some easily understood fashion) could 
lead the reader to wrongly conclude that a listed work site has always 
been a DOE facility when, in fact, it only had that status during a 
brief period. To lessen the potential for this type of 
misunderstanding, OWCP has decided to continue its practice of 
presenting two separate lists of DOE facilities.
    The first list consists exclusively of work sites that have only 
been DOE facilities for purposes of coverage under EEOICPA, and the 
second list consists of work sites that have also been at least one 
other type of covered work site in addition to a DOE facility. To see 
what other types of covered work sites the DOE facilities appearing in 
the second list are or have been, readers can refer to the Federal 
Register notices published by DOE on August 23, 2004 (69 FR 51825), 
November 30, 2005 (70 FR 71815), June 28, 2007 (72 FR 35448), April 9, 
2009 (74 FR 16191), August 3,

[[Page 55403]]

2010 (75 FR 45608), May 26, 2011 (76 FR 30695), February 6, 2012 (77 FR 
5781), February 11, 2013 (78 FR 9678), July 16, 2015 (80 FR 42094) and 
February 17, 2016 (81 FR 8060). Since covered time periods for a 
particular DOE facility are statutorily limited to periods during which 
``operations'' are or were performed by or on behalf of DOE (or its 
predecessor agencies) at that DOE facility, and when DOE (or its 
predecessor agencies) either had a proprietary interest in the facility 
or had entered into a particular type of contract with an entity 
regarding the facility, the lists below include date ranges during 
which covered employment at each work site could have been performed. 
These date ranges, however, often do not reflect the exact day and 
month that a work site either acquired or lost its status as a DOE 
facility, and are not considered binding on OWCP in its adjudication of 
individual claims under EEOICPA. Rather, they are presented in this 
notice for the sole purpose of informing the public of the current 
results of OWCP's research into the operational histories of these work 
sites, some of which extend back to the establishment of the Manhattan 
Engineer District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on August 13, 
1942. OWCP's efforts in this area are continuing, and it expects that 
the date ranges included in this notice will change with the 
publication of future notices.
    DOE facilities appearing on the lists that have undergone 
environmental remediation at the direction of or directly by DOE are 
identified by the following symbol--[dagger]--after the date range 
during which such environmental remediation occurred. During those 
periods, only the work of employees of DOE contractors who actually 
performed the remediation is ``covered work'' under EEOICPA.
