FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Theda Kenney or Seleda Perryman, Directorate of Standards and Guidance, OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, telephone (202) 693–2222. 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 of 1995 (PRA–95) (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 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). In the event that a worker is injured while operating a mechanical power PO 00000 Frm 00093 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 press, 29 CFR 1910.217(g) requires the employer to report, within 30 days of the occurrence, all point-of-operation injuries to the operators or other employees to either the Director of the Directorate of Standards and Guidance at OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, Washington, DC 20210 or electronically at http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/ mechanical.html; or to the State agency administering a plan approved by the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health. This information includes the employer’s and worker’s name(s), workplace address and location; injury sustained; task being performed when the injury occurred; number of operators required for the operation and the number of operators provided with controls and safeguards; cause of the incident; type of clutch, safeguard(s), and feeding method(s) used; and means used to actuate the press stroke. These reports are a source of up-to-date information on power press machines. Specifically, this information identifies the equipment used and conditions associated with these injuries. OSHA’s Mechanical Power Press injury reporting requirement at 1910.217(g) is a separate injury reporting requirement from OSHA’s severe injury reporting requirements which are part of 1904.39. Under 1904.39, employers must, within 24 hours, report to OSHA any work-related injury requiring hospitalization as well as work-related incidents resulting in an amputation or loss of an eye. The Mechanical Power Press Standard requires employers to report all injuries involving operation of a power press to OSHA or an appropriate state agency within 30 days. Injuries that must be reported under 1910.217(g) include those that are also reportable under 1904.39 as well as those that are recordable under the recordkeeping standard (29 CFR 1904). 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.

Proposed Actions OSHA is requesting that OMB extend the approval of the information collection requirement contained in the Standard on Reports of Injuries to Employees Operating Mechanical Power Presses (29 CFR 1910.217(g)). The agency is requesting an adjustment decrease in the number of burden hours from 400 to 390, a total reduction of 10 burden hours. The decrease is due to a decrease in the estimated number of injury reports caused by mechanical power presses (from 1,190 to 1,170). Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

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 
of 1995 (PRA-95) (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 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).
    In the event that a worker is injured while operating a mechanical 
power press, 29 CFR 1910.217(g) requires the employer to report, within 
30 days of the occurrence, all point-of-operation injuries to the 
operators or other employees to either the Director of the Directorate 
of Standards and Guidance at OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, 
Washington, DC 20210 or electronically at http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/mechanical.html; or to the State agency administering a plan 
approved by the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety 
and Health. This information includes the employer's and worker's 
name(s), workplace address and location; injury sustained; task being 
performed when the injury occurred; number of operators required for 
the operation and the number of operators provided with controls and 
safeguards; cause of the incident; type of clutch, safeguard(s), and 
feeding method(s) used; and means used to actuate the press stroke. 
These reports are a source of up-to-date information on power press 
machines. Specifically, this information identifies the equipment used 
and conditions associated with these injuries.
    OSHA's Mechanical Power Press injury reporting requirement at 
1910.217(g) is a separate injury reporting requirement from OSHA's 
severe injury reporting requirements which are part of 1904.39. Under 
1904.39, employers must, within 24 hours, report to OSHA any work-
related injury requiring hospitalization as well as work-related 
incidents resulting in an amputation or loss of an eye. The Mechanical 
Power Press Standard requires employers to report all injuries 
involving operation of a power press to OSHA or an appropriate state 
agency within 30 days. Injuries that must be reported under 1910.217(g) 
include those that are also reportable under 1904.39 as well as those 
that are recordable under the recordkeeping standard (29 CFR 1904).

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

[[Page 40083]]

technological information collection and transmission techniques.

III. Proposed Actions

    OSHA is requesting that OMB extend the approval of the information 
collection requirement contained in the Standard on Reports of Injuries 
to Employees Operating Mechanical Power Presses (29 CFR 1910.217(g)). 
The agency is requesting an adjustment decrease in the number of burden 
hours from 400 to 390, a total reduction of 10 burden hours. The 
decrease is due to a decrease in the estimated number of injury reports 
caused by mechanical power presses (from 1,190 to 1,170).
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Title: Reports of Injuries to Employees Operating Mechanical Power 
Presses (29 CFR 1910.217(g)).
    OMB Control Number: 1218-0070.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profits.
    Number of Respondents: 1,170.
    Frequency of Responses: On occasion.
    Average Time per Response: Various.
    Estimated Total Burden Hours: 390.
    Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $0.
