  Review; Comment Request; Temporary Labor Camps Standard

  ACTION: Notice.


  SUMMARY: The Department of Labor (DOL) is submitting the Occupational
  Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sponsored information
  collection request (ICR) titled, "Temporary Labor Camps Standard," to
  the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval for
  continued use, without change, in accordance with the Paperwork
  Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq. Public comments on
  the ICR are invited.

  DATES: The OMB will consider all written comments that agency receives
  on or before September 10, 2015.

  ADDRESSES: A copy of this ICR with applicable supporting documentation;
  including a description of the likely respondents, proposed frequency
  of response, and estimated total burden may be obtained free of charge
  from the RegInfo.gov Web site at 
http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAViewICR?ref_nbr=201507-1218-002 (this link will only become active on the day following publication of this notice) or by contacting Michel Smyth by telephone at 202-693-4129, TTY 202-693-8064, (these are not toll-free numbers) or by email at DOL_PRA_PUBLIC@dol.gov. Submit comments about this request by mail or courier to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Attn: OMB Desk Officer for DOL- OSHA, Office of Management and Budget, Room 10235, 725 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503; by Fax: 202-395-5806 (this is not a toll- free number); or by email: OIRA_submission@omb.eop.gov. Commenters are encouraged, but not required, to send a courtesy copy of any comments by mail or courier to the U.S. Department of Labor-OASAM, Office of the Chief Information Officer, Attn: Departmental Information Compliance Management Program, Room N1301, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210; or by email: DOL_PRA_PUBLIC@dol.gov. INFORMATION CONTACT: Contact Michel Smyth by telephone at 202-693-4129, TTY 202-693-8064, (these are not toll-free numbers) or by email at DOL_PRA_PUBLIC@dol.gov. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Temporary Labor Camp Standards information collection requirements codified in regulations 29 CFR 1910.142. It is mandatory for an Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) covered employer subject to the Standard to report to the local public health officer the name and address of any individual in the camp known to have, or suspected of having, a communicable disease. The employer is also required to notify local public health authorities of each occurrence of a suspected case of food poisoning or of an unusual prevalence of any illnesses in which fever, diarrhea, sore throat, vomiting, or jaundice is a prevalent symptom. These reporting requirements are necessary to minimize the possibility of communicable disease epidemics spreading throughout the camps and endangering the health of the camp residents. In addition, the Standard requires marking "for men" and "for women" on certain toilet rooms. OSH Act sections 2(b)(9), 6, and 8(c) authorize this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651(b)(9), 655, and 657(c). 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 1218-0096. 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 October 31, 2015. 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 April 29, 2015 (80 FR 23822). 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 thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218-0096. 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. Agency: DOL-OSHA. Title of Collection: Temporary Labor Camps Standard. OMB Control Number: 1218-0096. Affected Public: Private Sector--farms. Total Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,933. Total Estimated Number of Responses: 1,933. Total Estimated Annual Time Burden: 155 hours. Total Estimated Annual Other Costs Burden: $0. Dated: August 4, 2015.
