CDC will use a web-based system to collect data on the approaches that LEAs are using to meet their goals. Approaches include helping LEAs and priority schools deliver sexual health education emphasizing HIV and other STD prevention; increasing adolescent access to key sexual health services; and establishing safe and supportive environments for students and staff. To track LEA progress and evaluate the effectiveness of program activities, CDC will be collecting data using a mix of process and outcome measures. Process measures to be completed by all LEAs will assess the extent to which planned program activities have been implemented and lead to feasible and sustainable programmatic outcomes. Process measures include items on school health policy and practice assessment and training and technical assistance received from nongovernmental partner organizations. Outcome measures, which will be completed by local education agencies, assess whether funded activities at each site are leading to intended outcomes including public health impact of systemic change in schools. These measures drove the development of questionnaires that have been tailored to each of the LEAs’ strategies (i.e., SHE, SHS, SSE). Respondents are 25 LEAs that have been funded under PS18–1807. Local education agencies will complete the questionnaires semi-annually using the Program Evaluation and Reporting System (PERS), an electronic web-based interface specifically designed for this data collection. Each LEA will receive a unique log-in to the system and technical assistance to ensure they can use the system easily. The dates when data are requested reflect the Office of Financial Resources (OFR) deadlines to provide timely feedback to LEAs and CDC staff for accountability and optimal use of funds. CDC anticipates that semi- 47957 annual information collection will begin in February 2020 and will describe activities conducted during the period August 2019–July 2022. The estimated burden per response is approximately 2–26 hours. This estimate includes time for local education agencies to gather information at the district and schoollevels. Annualizing this collection over three years results in an estimated annualized burden of 1,750 hours per year and 5,250 for three years across all funded local education agencies. LEAs are required to allocate at least 6% of their NOFO award on evaluation ranging from $15,000 to $21,000. Grantees may use these discretionary funds for collection of process and outcome measures, including time to gather and enter data into the online and evaluation reporting system. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time. The total annual burden hours are 1,750.

This dual responsibility recognizes the need to translate research into workplace application if it is to impact worker safety and well-being. The goal of this project is to assess the relevance and impact of NIOSH’s contribution to guidelines and risk mitigation practices for safe handling of engineered nanomaterials in the workplace. The intended use of this data is to inform NIOSH’s research agenda to enhance its relevance and impact on worker safety and health in the context of engineered nanomaterials. The research under this project will survey companies who manufacture, distribute, fabricate, formulate, use or provide services related to engineered nanomaterials. The analysis will describe the survey sample, response rates, and types of company by industry and size. Further analysis will focus on identifying the types of engineered nanomaterials being used in industry and the types of occupational safety and health practices being implemented. The analysis will be used to develop a final report which evaluates the influence of NIOSH products, services, and outputs on industry occupational safety and health practices. Under this project, the following activities and data collections will be conducted: (1) Company Pre-calls. Sampled companies will be contacted to identify the person who will complete the survey and to ascertain whether or not the company handles engineered nanomaterials. (2) Survey. A web-based questionnaire, with a mail option, will be administered to companies. The purpose of the survey is to learn directly from companies about their use of NIOSH materials and their occupational safety and health practices concerning engineered nanomaterials. A sample of 600 companies will be compiled from lists of industry associations, research reports, marketing databases, and web-based searches. Of the 600 selected companies we anticipate that 500 will complete the survey. The company pre-call is expected to require five minutes to complete. The survey is expected to require 20 minutes to complete; including the time it may take respondents to look-up and retrieve needed information. The estimated annualized burden hours for the respondents’ time to participate in this information collection is 108 hours. There are no costs to the responders other than their time.

Background and Brief Description

    As mandated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (Pub.

[[Page 47958]]

Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is to conduct 
research and investigations on work-related disease and injury and to 
disseminate information for preventing identified workplace hazards 
(Sections 20(a)(1) and (d)). This dual responsibility recognizes the

and risk mitigation practices for safe handling of engineered 
nanomaterials in the workplace. The intended use of this data is to 
inform NIOSH's research agenda to enhance its relevance and impact on 
worker safety and health in the context of engineered nanomaterials.
    The research under this project will survey companies who 
manufacture, distribute, fabricate, formulate, use or provide services

survey sample, response rates, and types of company by industry and

will be conducted:
    (1) Company Pre-calls. Sampled companies will be contacted to 
identify the person who will complete the survey and to ascertain
