SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES I. Background The February and May 2022 CPS Unemployment Insurance (UI) NonFiler Supplement will be conducted at the request of the Department of Labor’s Chief Evaluation Office. The supplement was last collected in May and September of 2018. The UI Non-Filer Supplement will gather information on people who are unemployed as well as on a subset of those who are not in the labor force. Information will be collected about UI participation and reasons for not participating. The supplement also contains questions about people’s job search experience, such as information about jobs for which they have applied and whether they would accept a job similar to their last job but at lower pay. Additionally, this supplement contains questions about the job search process of unemployed individuals and the difficulties these seekers have in finding new employment. Because this supplement is part of the CPS, the same detailed demographic information collected in the CPS will be available on respondents to the supplement. Comparisons between UI filers and non-filers will be possible across characteristics such as sex, race and ethnicity, age, and educational attainment. UI benefits provide temporary financial assistance to the unemployed who meet certain eligibility criteria and can also help protect the economy during economic downturns. Unemployment increased dramatically in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID– 19) pandemic, making updated information of paramount importance. Data gathered in this supplement will help measure the effectiveness of current UI programs, identify possible shortcomings in existing UI programs, and assist policy makers in developing more effective policies. II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the CPS UI Non-Filer Supplement. This collection is needed to provide the Nation with timely information about individuals who do not file for UI benefits and their reasons for not doing so. In addition, data from the supplement will provide a fuller picture about how the unemployed search for jobs and the hardships they face when doing so.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Department of Labor, as part of its 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 of 1995 (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 effort in obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657). The Vertical Tandem Lift (VTL) Standard for Marine Terminals (29 CFR part 1917) specifies the following collection of information requirements. The purpose of each of these requirements is to provide workers with safe work practices when using VTLs. A VTL is the practice of a container crane lifting two or more intermodal containers, one on top of the other, connected by a particular type of inter box connector, known as a semiautomatic twist lock. Paragraph (a) of § 1917.71 requires that all intermodal containers are legibly and permanently marked with the weight of the container when empty ((a)(1)); the maximum weight the container is designed to carry in pounds ((a)(2)); and the maximum weight including the container ((a)(3)). Additionally, loaded containers must display their gross weight plainly marked on the container in a way that it is visible to the crane operator or other hoisting equipment operator or signalman, or to every supervisor and foreman on the site and in charge of the operation ((b)(2)(i)), or supplied in the form of a cargo stowage plan or equivalent permanent record to the crane or other hoisting equipment VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:34 Apr 30, 2021 Jkt 253001 operator and signalman, if any, and to every supervisor and foreman on the site and in charge of the operation ((b)(2)(ii)). The labeling of intermodal containers with the weight of the container, the maximum weight of cargo that can be packed in the container, and their sum provides the crane operator or other hoisting equipment operator or signalman, or to every supervisor and foreman on the site and in charge of the operation with a minimum and maximum range under which a container can be safely lifted. Providing the gross weight, either marked on the container or supplied in the form of a cargo stowage plan or equivalent permanent record, ensures that the containers being lifted and the cranes/ derricks performing the lifting are not overloaded. Paragraph (i)(8)(iv) of § 1917.71 requires employers to ensure that the interbox connectors used in VTLs has been certified by a competent authority authorized under § 1918.11 (for interbox connectors that are part of a vessel’s gear) or § 1917.50 (for other interbox connectors). Paragraph (i)(8)(v) requires employers to make the certification available for inspection and that the certificate attests that the interbox connector meets the strength criteria specified in paragraph (i)(8)(iv) of the standard. Also, paragraph (i)(8)(vi) requires that each interbox connector be clearly and durably marked with its safe working load for lifting with and an identifying number or mark that will enable it to be associated with its test certificate. The certification is necessary to ensure that interbox connector-corner casting assemblies have adequate strength to ensure the safety of the lift. Marking of interbox connectors informs employers, workers and OSHA that the interbox connectors have been certified. Paragraph (j)(2) of § 1917.71 requires the employer to develop, implement, and maintain a written plan for transporting vertically connected containers in the terminal. The transport plan helps ensure the safety of terminal workers and thereby enhances productivity. Paragraph (k)(2) of § 1917.71 requires that the written transport plan include the safe work zone and procedures to ensure that workers are not in the zone when a VTL is in motion. Written plans give employers, workers, and OSHA compliance officers assurance that VTLs are safe to use and provide the compliance officers with an efficient means to assess employer compliance with the Standard.

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 to protect workers, 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 proposing an adjustment increase and a program change of the existing burden hour estimate for the collection of information requirements specified by the Standard from 512 hours to 23,256 hours, a total increase of 22,744 hours.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Department of Labor, as part of its 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 
of 1995 (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 effort in 
obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657).
    The Vertical Tandem Lift (VTL) Standard for Marine Terminals (29 
CFR part 1917) specifies the following collection of information 
requirements. The purpose of each of these requirements is to provide 
workers with safe work practices when using VTLs. A VTL is the practice 
of a container crane lifting two or more intermodal containers, one on 
top of the other, connected by a particular type of inter box 
connector, known as a semiautomatic twist lock.
    Paragraph (a) of Sec.  1917.71 requires that all intermodal 
containers are legibly and permanently marked with the weight of the 
container when empty ((a)(1)); the maximum weight the container is 
designed to carry in pounds ((a)(2)); and the maximum weight including 
the container ((a)(3)).
    Additionally, loaded containers must display their gross weight 
plainly marked on the container in a way that it is visible to the 
crane operator or other hoisting equipment operator or signalman, or to 
every supervisor and foreman on the site and in charge of the operation 
((b)(2)(i)), or supplied in the form of a cargo stowage plan or 
equivalent permanent record to the crane or other hoisting equipment 
operator and signalman, if any, and to every supervisor and foreman on 
the site and in charge of the operation ((b)(2)(ii)).
    The labeling of intermodal containers with the weight of the 
container, the maximum weight of cargo that can be packed in the 
container, and their sum provides the crane operator or other hoisting 
equipment operator or signalman, or to every supervisor and foreman on 
the site and in charge of the operation with a minimum and maximum 
range under which a container can be safely lifted. Providing the gross 
weight, either marked on the container or supplied in the form of a 
cargo stowage plan or equivalent permanent record, ensures that the 
containers being lifted and the cranes/derricks performing the lifting 
are not overloaded.
    Paragraph (i)(8)(iv) of Sec.  1917.71 requires employers to ensure 
that the interbox connectors used in VTLs has been certified by a 
competent authority authorized under Sec.  1918.11 (for interbox 
connectors that are part of a vessel's gear) or Sec.  1917.50 (for 
other interbox connectors). Paragraph (i)(8)(v) requires employers to 
make the certification available for inspection and that the 
certificate attests that the interbox connector meets the strength 
criteria specified in paragraph (i)(8)(iv) of the standard. Also, 
paragraph (i)(8)(vi) requires that each interbox connector be clearly 
and durably marked with its safe working load for lifting with and an 
identifying number or mark that will enable it to be associated with 
its test certificate. The certification is necessary to ensure that 
interbox connector-corner casting assemblies have adequate strength to 
ensure the safety of the lift. Marking of interbox connectors informs 
employers, workers and OSHA that the interbox connectors have been 
certified.
    Paragraph (j)(2) of Sec.  1917.71 requires the employer to develop, 
implement, and maintain a written plan for transporting vertically 
connected containers in the terminal. The transport plan helps ensure 
the safety of terminal workers and thereby enhances productivity. 
Paragraph (k)(2) of Sec.  1917.71 requires that the written transport 
plan include the safe work zone and procedures to ensure that workers 
are not in the zone when a VTL is in motion.
    Written plans give employers, workers, and OSHA compliance officers 
assurance that VTLs are safe to use and provide the compliance officers 
with an efficient means to assess employer compliance with the 
Standard.

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 to 
protect workers, 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 proposing an adjustment increase and a program change of 
the existing burden hour estimate for the collection of information 
requirements specified by the Standard from 512 hours to 23,256 hours, 
a total increase of 22,744 hours. The estimated number of marine 
terminals that use VTLs is based on data from the North American
