SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Survey of Occupational Injuries and Illnesses (SOII) information collection. The SOII is the primary indicator of the Nation’s progress in providing every working man and woman safe and healthful working conditions. The survey measures the overall rate of work injuries and illnesses by industry. In addition, survey data are used to evaluate the effectiveness of Federal and State programs and to prioritize scarce resources. Respondents include employers who maintain related records in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) and employers who are normally exempt from such recordkeeping. Each year a sample of exempt employers is required to keep records and participate in the survey. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because the BLS proposes collecting Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) assigned establishment identification number on a voluntary basis from SOII internet respondents required to submit data to the OSHA PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63539 and BLS. This identification number will be used to improve matching OSHA and BLS data. The BLS and OSHA also continue to work together to explore technological solutions to reduce duplicative burden, including changes to the collection systems for both and the possibility of data sharing from OHSA to BLS on a flow basis. The Household SOII feasibility test is now complete and that collection has been removed. OSH Act sections 8(c) and 24(a) authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 657(c), 673(a). 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, 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 1220–0045. 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 May 19, 2016 (81 FR 31666). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at 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 1220–0045. 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 E:\FR\FM\10DEN1.SGM 10DEN1 63540 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 236 / Monday, December 10, 2018 / Notices 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.

ACTION: Notice of special procedures. AGENCY: In the event of an appropriations lapse, the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) would be required to publish documents directly related to the performance of governmental functions necessary to address imminent threats to the safety of human life or protection of property. Since it would be impracticable for the OFR to make case-by-case determinations as to whether certain documents are directly related to activities that qualify for an exemption under the Antideficiency Act, the OFR will place responsibility on agencies submitting documents to certify that their documents relate to emergency activities authorized under the Act. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Amy Bunk, Director of Legal Affairs and Policy, or Miriam Vincent, Staff Attorney, Office of the Federal Register, National Archives and Records Administration, (202) 741–6030 or Fedreg.legal@nara.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Due to the possibility of a lapse in appropriations and in accordance with the provisions SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:10 Dec 07, 2018 Jkt 247001 of the Antideficiency Act, as amended by Public Law 101–508, 104 Stat. 1388 (31 U.S.C. 1341), the Office of the Federal Register (OFR) announces special procedures for agencies submitting documents for publication in the Federal Register. In the event of an appropriations lapse, the OFR would be required to publish documents directly related to the performance of governmental functions necessary to address imminent threats to the safety of human life or protection of property. Since it would be impracticable for the OFR to make case-by-case determinations as to whether certain documents are directly related to activities that qualify for an exemption under the Antideficiency Act, the OFR will place responsibility on agencies submitting documents to certify that their documents relate to emergency activities authorized under the Act. During a funding hiatus affecting one or more Federal agencies, the OFR will remain open to accept and process documents authorized to be published in the daily Federal Register in the absence of continuing appropriations. An agency wishing to submit a document to the OFR during a funding hiatus must attach a transmittal letter to the document which states that publication in the Federal Register is necessary to safeguard human life, protect property, or provide other emergency services consistent with the performance of functions and services exempted under the Antideficiency Act. Under the August 16, 1995 opinion of the Office of Legal Counsel of the Department of Justice, exempt functions and services would include activities such as those related to the constitutional duties of the President, food and drug inspection, air traffic control, responses to natural or manmade disasters, law enforcement and supervision of financial markets. Documents related to normal or routine activities of Federal agencies, even if funded under prior year appropriations, will not be published. At the onset of a funding hiatus, the OFR may suspend the regular three-day publication schedule to permit a limited number of exempt personnel to process emergency documents. Agency officials will be informed as to the schedule for filing and publishing individual documents. Authority: The authority for this action is 44 U.S.C. 1502 and 1 CFR 2.4 and 5.1. Oliver A. Potts, Director of the Federal Register.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for

information collection. The SOII is the primary indicator of the 
Nation's progress in providing every working man and woman safe and 
healthful working conditions. The survey measures the overall rate of 
work injuries and illnesses by industry. In addition, survey data are

related records in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health 
Act (OSH Act) and employers who are normally exempt from such 
recordkeeping. Each year a sample of exempt employers is required to 
keep records and participate in the survey. This information collection 
has been classified as a revision, because the BLS proposes collecting 
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) assigned 
establishment identification number on a voluntary basis from SOII 
internet respondents required to submit data to the OSHA and BLS. This 
identification number will be used to improve matching OSHA and BLS 
data. The BLS and OSHA also continue to work together to explore 
technological solutions to reduce duplicative burden, including changes 
to the collection systems for both and the possibility of data sharing 
from OHSA to BLS on a flow basis. The Household SOII feasibility test 
is now complete and that collection has been removed. OSH Act sections 
8(c) and 24(a) authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C.
