SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for
the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for General Industry Standard
information collections codified in regulations 29 CFR part 1910,
subpart I. The Standard requires that PPE--including equipment for
eyes, face, head, and extremities; protective clothing; respiratory
devices; and protective shields and barriers--be provided, used, and
maintained in a sanitary and reliable condition wherever it is
necessary by reason of hazards of processes or environment, chemical
hazards, radiological hazards, or mechanical irritants encountered in a
manner capable of causing injury or impairment in the function of any
part of the body through absorption, inhalation or physical contact.
This ICR covers hazard assessment and verification records and record
disclosure during inspections. Occupational Safety and Health Act
sections 2(b)(9) and 8(g)(2) authorize this information collection. See
29 U.S.C. 651(b)(9) and 657(g)(2).
OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3)
years without renewal, and 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 March 2, 2016 (81 FR 10918).
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 1218-0205.
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.
