This program ensures that information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA’s estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires that OSHA obtain such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Department of Labor, as part of the continuing effort to reduce 
paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, conducts a 
preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an 
opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information 
collection requirements in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act 
(PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information 
is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, 
collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA's estimate of 
the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety 
and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes 
information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for 
enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the 
causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and 
accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires that OSHA obtain 
such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those 
operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent 
feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information 
(29 U.S.C. 657).
    The collection of information contained in the Mechanical Power 
Presses Standard are necessary to reduce workers' risk of death or 
serious injury by ensuring that employers maintain the mechanical power 
presses used by the workers in safe operating condition.
    The following sections describe who uses the information collected 
under each requirement, as well as how they use it.

Section 1910.217(e)(1)(i)

    Paragraph (e)(1)(i) requires employers to establish and follow a 
program of periodic and regular inspections of power presses to ensure 
that all their parts, auxiliary equipment, and safeguards are in safe 
operating condition and adjustment. Employers must maintain a 
certification record of inspections that includes the date of 
inspection, the signature of the person who performed the inspection, 
and the

serial number, or other identifiers, of the power press that was 
inspected.

Section 1910.217(e)(1)(ii)

    Paragraph (e)(1)(ii) requires employers to inspect and test each 
press no less than weekly to determine the condition of the clutch/
brake mechanism, antirepeat feature, and single-stroke mechanism. 
Employers must perform and complete necessary maintenance or repair or 
both before the press is operated. In addition, employers must maintain 
a record of inspections, tests, and maintenance work. The record must 
include the date of the inspection, test, or maintenance; the signature 
of the person who performed the inspection, test, or maintenance; and 
the serial number, or other identifiers, of the press that was 
inspected, tested, or maintained.

II. Special Issues for Comment

    OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:
     Whether the proposed information collection requirements 
are necessary for the proper performance of the agency's functions, 
including whether the information is useful;
     The accuracy of OSHA's estimate of the burden (time and 
costs) of the information collection requirements, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     The quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply; 
for example, by using automated or other technological information 
collection and transmission techniques.

III. Proposed Actions

    OSHA is requesting a burden hour adjustment decrease of 17,160 
hours from 37,967 hours to 20,807 hours. This change in calculation 
methods accounts for the large decrease in the agency's estimate of 
mechanical power presses currently in service, still an overestimation.
