SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to maintain PRA authorization 
for the Student Data Form, Form OSHA-182. The Occupational Safety and 
Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) authorizes the OSHA to conduct education 
and training courses. See 29 U.S.C. 670. These courses must educate an 
adequate number of qualified personnel to fulfill OSH Act purposes, 
provide personnel with short-term training, inform students 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. The OSHA Training Institute provides 
basic, intermediate, and advanced training and education in 
occupational safety and health for Federal and State compliance 
officers, OSHA 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 
    Students attending OSHA Training Institute courses complete a one-
page Student Data Form on the first day of class. The Student Data Form 
collects information under five major categories; course information, 
personal data, employer data, emergency contacts, and student groups. 
The OSHA uses information provided on the Student Data Form to contact 
a designated person in case of an emergency, to prepare certain OSH 
Act-required reports, tuition receipts, to evaluate training output, 
and to make decisions regarding program/course revisions, budget 
support, and tuition costs.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this
information collection under Control Number 1218-0172.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on December 31, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that 
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on August 23, 2013 (78 FR 
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in 
the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218-0172. 
The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
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.
