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 accord 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 (the 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 minimal 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). The OSH Act authorizes the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration ("OSHA" or the
"Agency") to conduct education and training courses (29 U.S.C. 670).
These courses must educate an adequate number of qualified personnel to
fulfill the purposes of the OSH Act, provide them with short-term
training, inform them of the importance and proper use of safety and
health equipment, and train employers and workers to recognize, avoid,
and prevent unsafe and unhealthful working conditions.
Under Section 21 of the OSH Act, the OSHA Training Institute (the
"Institute") provides basic, intermediate, and advanced training and
education in occupational safety and health for state compliance
officers, Agency professionals and technical-support personnel,
employers, workers, organizations representing workers and employers,
educators who develop curricula and teach occupational safety and
health courses, and representatives of professional safety and health
groups. The Institute provides courses on occupational safety and
health at its national training facility in Arlington Heights,
Students attending Institute courses complete the one-page Student
Data Form (OSHA Form 182) on the first day of class. The form provides
information under five major categories titled "Course Information,"
"Personal Data," "Employer Data," "Emergency Contacts," and
"Student Groups." The OSHA Directorate of Training and Education (the
"Directorate") compiles, for each fiscal year, the following
information from the "Course Information" and "Student Groups"
categories: Total student attendance at the Institute; the number of
students attending each training course offered by the Institute; and
the types of students attending these courses (for example, students
from federal or state occupational safety and health agencies). The
Directorate uses this information to demonstrate, in an accurate and
timely manner, that the Agency is providing the training and worker
education mandated by Section 21 of the Act. OSHA also uses this
information to evaluate training output, and to make decisions
regarding program/course revisions, budget support, and tuition costs.
The Agency uses the information collected under the "Course
Information," "Personal Data," and "Employer Data" to identify
private sector students so that it can collect tuition costs from them
or their employers as authorized by 31 U.S.C. 9701 ("Fees and Charges
for Government Services and Things of Value"); Office of Management
and Budget Circular A-25 ("User Charges"); and 29 CFR part 1949
("Directorate of Training and Education, Occupational Safety and
Health Administration"). The information in the "Personal Data" and
"Emergency Contacts" categories permits OSHA to contact students who
are residing in local hotels/motels if an emergency arises at their
home or place of employment, and to alert supervisors/alternate
contacts of a trainee's injury or illness.
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 the Agency'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
Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply;
for example, by using automated or other technological information
collection and transmission techniques.

collection requirements contained in the Student Data Form. The Agency
