SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks PRA authority for the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration Alliance Program
information collection. OSHA's Alliance Program is a structure for
working with groups that are committed to worker safety and health. The
program enables OSHA to enter into a voluntary cooperative relationship
with industry, labor and other groups to improve workplace safety and
health, prevent workplace fatalities, injuries and illnesses, and to
reach employers and workers that OSHA may not otherwise reach through
traditional methods. OSHA collects information from organizations that
are signatories to an Alliance agreement through meetings, informal
conversations and data forms. OSHA will use the collected information
to develop Alliance agreements, support Alliance activities and
Alliance agreement objectives, and develop annual and program-wide
reports. Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 section (2)(b)(1)
authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651(2)(b)(1).
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 the OMB, under the PRA, approves it 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 June 21, 2018 (83 FR 28868).
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 201902-
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.
