SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 103(h) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, as amended (Mine Act), 30 U.S.C. 813(h), authorizes MSHA to collect information necessary to carry out its duty in protecting the safety and health of miners. Further, section 101(a) of the Mine Act, 30 U.S.C. 811, authorizes the Secretary of Labor (Secretary) to develop, promulgate, and revise as may be appropriate, improved mandatory health or safety standards for the protection of life and prevention of injuries in coal or other mines. The Mine Act recognizes that education and training is an important element of efforts to make the nation’s mines safe. Section 115(a) of the Mine Act states that ‘‘each operator of a coal or other mine shall have a health and safety training program which shall be approved by the Secretary.’’ Title 30 CFR 48.3 and 48.23 require training plans for underground and surface mines, respectively. These standards are intended to ensure that miners will be effectively trained in matters affecting their health and safety, with the ultimate goal of reducing the occurrence of injury and illness in the nation’s mines. Training plans are required to be submitted for approval to the MSHA District Manager for the area in which the mine is located. Plans must contain the following: (1) Company name; (2) mine name; (3) MSHA identification number of the mine; (4) the name and position of the person designated by the operator who is responsible for health and safety training at the mine; (5) a list of MSHAapproved instructors with whom the operator proposes to make arrangements to teach the courses and the courses each instructor is qualified to teach; (6) the location where training will be given for each course; (7) a description of the teaching methods and the course materials which are to be used in training; (8) the approximate number of miners employed at the mine and the PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 14647 maximum number who will attend each session of training; (9) the predicted time or periods of time when regularly scheduled refresher training will be given including the titles of courses to be taught; (10) the total number of instruction hours for each course; and (11) the predicted time and length of each session of training for new task training including a complete list of task assignments, the titles of personnel conducting the training, the outline of training procedures used, and the evaluation procedures used to determine the effectiveness of the training. Title 30 CFR 48.9 and 48.29 require records of training for underground and surface mines, respectively. Upon completion of each training program, the mine operator certifies on a form approved by the Secretary, MSHA Form 5000–23, Certificate of Training, that the miner has received the specified training in each subject area of the approved health and safety training plan. The Certificate of Training forms are to be maintained by the operator for a period of 2 years for current employees and for 60 days after termination of a miner’s employment, and must be available for inspection at the mine site. In addition, the miner is entitled to a copy of the certificate upon completion of the training and when the miner leaves the operator’s employment. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2020 (85 FR 68600). 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 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 OMB Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. DOL seeks PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) years. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal. The DOL notes that information collection requirements submitted to the OMB for existing ICRs receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. Agency: DOL–MSHA.
