Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 247 / Wednesday, December 23, 2020 / Notices OSHA Challenge is designed to reach and guide employers and companies in all major industry groups who are strongly committed to improving their safety and health management programs and possibly pursuing recognition in the VPP. The Challenge Administrators application is used to: (1) Conduct a preliminary analysis of the applicant’s knowledge of safety and health management programs; and (2) make a determination regarding the applicant’s qualifications to become a Challenge Administrator. Once a Challenge Administrator is approved, the Administrator will review each challenge candidate’s application/ annual submissions to ensure that all necessary information is provided, prior to forwarding to OSHA’s National Office for acceptance and analysis. II. Special Issues for Comment OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues: • Whether the information collection requirements are necessary for the proper performance of the agency’s functions, including whether the information is useful; • The accuracy of the agency’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. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES III. Proposed Actions OSHA is requesting an adjustment decrease of 363 burden hours from 90,863 to 90,500 hours. The decrease is primarily due to the lack of Challenge participation, and lack of training of new SGE applicants and re-approval training of existing SGEs due to the negative impact of the COVID–19 imposed on all OSHA Cooperative Programs.

Number of Respondents: 4,052. Total Respondents: 3,601. Frequency: Various. Estimated Total Total Burden Hours: 90,500. Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $0.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DOL, as part of continuing efforts to 
reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance 
consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies

same purpose. This information collection is currently approved for use 
through April 30, 2021. 30 U.S.C. 933 and 20 CFR 726.110 authorize this 
information collection.
    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 the OMB under the PRA approves it 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.
