The Department of Labor, as part of the continuing effort to reduce
paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, conducts a
preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an
opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information
collection requirements in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act
of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that
information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs)
is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA's
estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. Consistent
with the authority of Section 21 of the OSH Act, the agency created two
educational programs, the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education
Centers Program and the OSHA Outreach Training Program (Outreach).
To be a participant in the OTI Education Centers Programs or the
Outreach Training Program, an individual/organization must provide the
agency with certain information. The requested information is necessary
to evaluate the applicant organization and to implement, oversee, and
monitor the OTI Education Centers and Outreach Training Programs,
courses and trainers. The 11 collection of information requirements are
A. Application to become an OSHA Training Institute Education
Center (OTI Education Center);
B. OTI Education Centers Monthly Summary Report for the OTI
Education Centers and the Outreach Training Program Monthly Summary
C. Statement of Compliance with Outreach Training Program
D. Outreach Training Program Report Forms (includes Construction,
General Industry, Maritime, and Disaster Site);
E. Online Outreach Training Program Report;
F. Active Authorized Outreach Trainer List;
G. OSHA Training Institute Student Survey (OSHA Form 49 11-05
Edition) (OMB 1225-0059) (Attachment I, OSHA Form 49 11-05 Edition);
H. Attendance Documentation for OTI Education Centers;
I. Outreach Online Training Certification Statement;
J. Instructor and Staff Resumes (this includes anyone who may be
assigned to conduct OSHA classes, contractor, subcontractor, employee,
adjunct professor, etc.; and
K. Course Material upon Request by OSHA from OTI Education Centers.
II. Special Issues for Comment
OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:
Whether the proposed information collection requirements
are necessary for the proper performance of the agency's functions,
including whether the information is useful;
The accuracy of OSHA's estimate of the burden (time and
costs) of the information collection requirements, including the
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
The quality, utility, and clarity of the information
Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply-
for example, by using automated or other technological information
collection and transmission techniques.
III. Proposed Actions
OSHA is requesting a 385 burden hour adjustment increase (from
15,913 to 16,298) as a result of increasing the number of courses
offered and the number of students attending these courses. The agency
will summarize comments submitted in response to this notice and will
