  SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks PRA authority for the Safe + 
  Sound Campaign information collection. The OSHA established the Safe + 
  Sound Campaign as a voluntary effort to support the implementation of 
  safety and health programs in businesses throughout the United States. 
  The Campaign includes period activities and events, ranging from 
  regular email updates to quarterly national webinars to local meetings 
  to an annual national stand down, designed to increase overall employer 
  and employee awareness and understanding of safety and health programs 
  and promote employer adoption of these programs. To gain information 
  needed to support this effort, the OSHA is proposing to survey, and in 
  some cases interview, those participating in the Campaign activities. 
  The goal of the information collection is to understand and respond to 
  the needs of participants and publicly highlight outcomes to enhance 
  the effectiveness of the Campaign. Occupation Safety and
  
  
  Health Act of 1970 section 21 authorizes this information collection. 
  See 29 U.S.C. 670.
      This proposed 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 if the collection of information does not display a valid 
  Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. For additional 
  information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register 
  on December 12, 2017 (82 FR 58448).
      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 ICR Reference Number 201804-
  1218-001. 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.
