including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
    Agency: Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
    Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection.
    Title: Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (Hazwoper) 
(29 CFR 1910.120).
    OMB Number: 1218-0202.
    Frequency: On occasion.
    Type of Response: Recordkeeping and Third party disclosure.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit; Not-for-profit 
institutions; Federal Government; and State, local, or tribal 
    Number of Respondents: 35,529.
    Number of Annual Responses: 1,198,868.
    Estimated Time per Response: Varies from one minute to maintain a 
certification record to 24 hours for initial employee training.
    Total Burden Hours: 1,235,602.
    Total Annualized capital/startup costs: $0.
    Total Annual Costs (operating/maintaining systems or purchasing

    Description: The standard specifies a number of collection of 
information (paperwork) requirements. Employers can use the information 
collected under the HAZWOPER rule to develop the various programs the 
standard requires and to ensure that their employees are trained 
properly about the safety and health hazards associated with hazardous 
waste operations and emergency response to hazardous waste releases. 
OSHA uses the records developed in response to this standard to find 
adequate compliance with the safety and health provisions. The 
employer's failure to collect and distribute the information required 
in this standard will affect significantly OSHA's effort to control and 
reduce injuries and fatalities.
