Proposed Submission of Information Collection for OMB Review; Comment Request; Administrative Appeals, 10554-10555 [2019-05326]

Download as PDF 10554 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 55 / Thursday, March 21, 2019 / Notices to employees a safe practices manual; maintain a list of emergency telephone or call numbers at the diving location; display a code flag ‘‘A’’ if diving from a surface other than a vessel in navigable waters; and develop and maintain a depth-time profile for each dive. The standards also mandate that employers: Record and maintain diving logs that contain required information; investigate and provide a written evaluation of any incident involving decompression sickness; mark diving umbilicals as required; inspect, test, and calibrate specified diving equipment; record modifications, repairs, tests, calibrations, and maintenance performed on any diving equipment; make a record of diving-related injuries and illnesses that result in a diver remaining in a hospital for over 24 hours; and create, and disclose to specified parties on request, the written records required by the standard, and maintain these records for specified periods. The standards paperwork requirements allow employers to deviate from established diving practices and tailor diving operations to unusually hazardous diving conditions, and to analyze diving records (including hospitalization and treatment records) for information they can use to improve diving operations. These requirements are also a direct and efficient means for employers to inform dive-team members about diving-related hazards, procedures to use in avoiding and controlling these hazards, and recognizing and treating diving-related illnesses and injuries. Additionally, employers can review equipment records to ensure that employees performed the required actions, and that the equipment is in safe working order. Disclosing these records to employees and their designated representatives permits them to identify operational and equipment conditions that may contribute to diving accidents or divingrelated medical conditions. amozie on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES II.
