SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of a 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 E:\FR\FM\27APN1.SGM 27APN1 jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 22280 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 79 / Tuesday, April 27, 2021 / Notices requirements in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, the reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal, the 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 OSHA to obtain such information with a minimum burden upon employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining said information (29 U.S.C. 657). The following sections describe who uses the information collected under each requirement, as well as how they use it. The purpose of these requirements is to reduce employees’ risk of death or serious injury by ensuring that equipment has been tested and is in safe operating condition. Manila rope and manila-rope slings (paragraph 1915.112(a)(1))—The employer must ensure that manila rope and manila-rope slings have permanently affixed and legible identification markings as prescribed by the manufacturer that indicate the recommended safe working load for the type(s) of hitch(es) used, the angle upon which it is based, and the number of legs if more than one. Wire rope and wire-rope slings (paragraph 1915.112(b)(1)(i))—The employer must ensure that wire rope and wire-rope slings have permanently affixed and legible identification markings as prescribed by the manufacturer that indicate the recommended safe working load for the type(s) of hitch(es) used, the angle upon which it is based, and the number of legs if more than one. Chain and chain slings (paragraph 1915.112(c)(1)(i))—The employer must ensure that chain and chain slings have permanently affixed and legible identification markings as prescribed by the manufacturer that indicate the recommended safe working load for the type(s) of hitch(es) used, the angle upon which it is based, and the number of legs if more than one. Chain and chain slings (paragraph 1915.112(c)(2))—The employer shall visually inspect all sling chains, VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:52 Apr 26, 2021 Jkt 253001 including end fastenings, before being used on the job, as well as every three months. The inspection shall include inspection for wear, defective welds, deformation and increase in length or stretch. Each chain shall bear an indication of the month in which it was thoroughly inspected. Shackles (paragraph 1915.113(a)(1))—The employer must ensure that shackles have permanently affixed and legible identification markings as prescribed by the manufacturer that indicate the recommended safe working load. Test Records for Hooks (paragraph 1915.113(b)(1))—This paragraph requires that the manufacturer’s recommendations be followed in determining the safe working loads of the various sizes and types of hooks. If the manufacturer’s recommendations are not available, the hook must be tested to twice the intended safe working load before it is initially put into use. The employer must maintain and keep readily available a certification record which includes the date of such test, the signature of the person who performed the test, and an identifier for the hook which was tested. The records are used to assure that equipment has been properly tested. The records also provide the most efficient means for the compliance officers to determine that an employer is complying with the Standard. Mobile Crawler or Truck Cranes Used on a Vessel (paragraph 1915.115(c))— This paragraph requires that the maximum manufacturer’s rated safe working loads for the various working radii of the boom and the maximum and minimum radii at which the boom may be safely used with and without outriggers shall be conspicuously posted near the controls and shall be visible to the operator. Examination and Test Records for Unfired Pressure Vessels (paragraphs 1915.172(b) and (d))—Paragraph (b) requires that portable, unfired pressure vessels not built to the requirements of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Rules for Construction of Unfired Pressure Vessels, 1963 be examined quarterly by a competent person and subjected to a yearly hydrostatic pressure test. A certification record of such examinations and tests shall be maintained as specified by paragraph (d). • 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 an adjustment decrease in the existing burden hour estimates for the collection of information requirements specified by the Standards from 11,813 hours to 10,610 hours, a total difference of 1,203 hours. This decrease is due to a change in the number of establishments. In this ICR, the scope of the maritime standards in 29 CFR 1915 for slings, shackles, and hooks are based on the Final Economic Analysis for the Final Rule revising subpart F of 29 CFR part 1915 prepared by OSHA’s Office of Regulatory Analysis. As a result of the Final Rule, the revision of the standard applies to all shipyard employment which is defined in § 1915.4(i) as ship repairing, shipbuilding, shipbreaking, and related employment. Also, upon further analysis, the agency identified two new collections of information contained in the Standard under paragraphs §§ 1915.112(c)(2) and 1915.115(c)(1). The agency will summarize any comments submitted in response to this notice and will include this summary in the request to OMB. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Department of Labor, as part of a 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

[[Page 22280]]

requirements in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 
(PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information 
is in the desired format, the reporting burden (time and costs) is 
minimal, the 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 OSHA to obtain such information with a minimum burden upon 
employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce 
to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in 
obtaining said information (29 U.S.C. 657).
    The following sections describe who uses the information collected 
under each requirement, as well as how they use it. The purpose of 
these requirements is to reduce employees' risk of death or serious 
injury by ensuring that equipment has been tested and is in safe 
operating condition.
    Manila rope and manila-rope slings (paragraph 1915.112(a)(1))--The 
employer must ensure that manila rope and manila-rope slings have 
permanently affixed and legible identification markings as prescribed 
by the manufacturer that indicate the recommended safe working load for 
the type(s) of hitch(es) used, the angle upon which it is based, and 
the number of legs if more than one.
    Wire rope and wire-rope slings (paragraph 1915.112(b)(1)(i))--The 
employer must ensure that wire rope and wire-rope slings have 
permanently affixed and legible identification markings as prescribed 
by the manufacturer that indicate the recommended safe working load for 
the type(s) of hitch(es) used, the angle upon which it is based, and 
the number of legs if more than one.
    Chain and chain slings (paragraph 1915.112(c)(1)(i))--The employer 
must ensure that chain and chain slings have permanently affixed and 
legible identification markings as prescribed by the manufacturer that 
indicate the recommended safe working load for the type(s) of hitch(es) 
used, the angle upon which it is based, and the number of legs if more 
than one.
    Chain and chain slings (paragraph 1915.112(c)(2))--The employer 
shall visually inspect all sling chains, including end fastenings, 
before being used on the job, as well as every three months. The 
inspection shall include inspection for wear, defective welds, 
deformation and increase in length or stretch. Each chain shall bear an 
indication of the month in which it was thoroughly inspected.
    Shackles (paragraph 1915.113(a)(1))--The employer must ensure that 
shackles have permanently affixed and legible identification markings 
as prescribed by the manufacturer that indicate the recommended safe 
working load.
    Test Records for Hooks (paragraph 1915.113(b)(1))--This paragraph 
requires that the manufacturer's recommendations be followed in 
determining the safe working loads of the various sizes and types of 
hooks. If the manufacturer's recommendations are not available, the 
hook must be tested to twice the intended safe working load before it 
is initially put into use. The employer must maintain and keep readily 
available a certification record which includes the date of such test, 
the signature of the person who performed the test, and an identifier 
for the hook which was tested.
    The records are used to assure that equipment has been properly 
tested. The records also provide the most efficient means for the 
compliance officers to determine that an employer is complying with the 
Standard.
    Mobile Crawler or Truck Cranes Used on a Vessel (paragraph 
1915.115(c))--This paragraph requires that the maximum manufacturer's 
rated safe working loads for the various working radii of the boom and 
the maximum and minimum radii at which the boom may be safely used with 
and without outriggers shall be conspicuously posted near the controls 
and shall be visible to the operator.
    Examination and Test Records for Unfired Pressure Vessels 
(paragraphs 1915.172(b) and (d))--Paragraph (b) requires that portable, 
unfired pressure vessels not built to the requirements of the American 
Society of Mechanical Engineers Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, 
Section VIII, Rules for Construction of Unfired Pressure Vessels, 1963 
be examined quarterly by a competent person and subjected to a yearly 
hydrostatic pressure test. A certification record of such examinations 
and tests shall be maintained as specified by paragraph (d).

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 an adjustment decrease in the existing burden 
hour estimates for the collection of information requirements specified 
by the Standards from 11,813 hours to 10,610 hours, a total difference 
of 1,203 hours. This decrease is due to a change in the number of 
establishments. In this ICR, the scope of the maritime standards in 29 
CFR 1915 for slings, shackles, and hooks are based on the Final 
Economic Analysis for the Final Rule revising subpart F of 29 CFR part 
1915 prepared by OSHA's Office of Regulatory Analysis. As a result of 
the Final Rule, the revision of the standard applies to all shipyard 
employment which is defined in Sec.  1915.4(i) as ship repairing, 
shipbuilding, shipbreaking, and related employment. Also, upon further 
analysis, the agency identified two new collections of information 
contained in the Standard under paragraphs Sec. Sec.  1915.112(c)(2) 
and 1915.115(c)(1). The agency will summarize any comments submitted in 
response to this notice and will include this summary in the request to 
OMB.
