  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.
