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

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.

Subpart P).
    OMB Number: 1218-0248.

    Description: 29 CFR part 1915, Subpart P (``the Standard'') 
requires employers to develop a written fire safety plan and written 
statements or policies that contain information about fire watches and 
fire response duties and responsibilities. The Standard also requires 
the employer to obtain medical exams for certain workers and to develop 
training programs and to train employees exposed to fire hazards. The 
Standard also requires employers to create and maintain records to 
certify that employees have been made aware of the details of the fire 
safety plan and that employees have been trained as required by the 
Standard. OSHA uses the records developed in response to this Standard 
to determine compliance with the safety and health provisions of the 
Standard and they are critical in OSHA's effort to control and reduce 
injuries and fatalities related to fires in shipyard employment.

Darrin A. King,
Acting Departmental Clearance Officer.
