SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OSHA's Office of Training and Educational
Programs is designed to recognize and promote excellence in safety and
health training. The OSHA Training Institute's (OTI) Education Centers
offer courses for the private sector and other federal agency personnel
at locations throughout the United States. OSHA extends its training
reach to workers through its various Outreach Training Programs.
Through the Outreach Training Programs, qualified individuals complete
an OSHA trainer course and become authorized to teach student courses.
The collection of information requirements contained in these programs
are necessary to evaluate the applicant organization and to implement,
oversee, and monitor the OTI Education Centers and Outreach Training
Programs, courses and trainers. For additional substantive information
about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal
Register on May 28, 2020 (85 FR 32052).
This 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 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 that does not display a valid
OMB Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6.
DOL seeks PRA authorization for this information collection for
