SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 21 of the OSH Act (29 U.S.C. 670) 
authorizes OSHA to conduct directly, or through grants and contracts, 
education and training courses. These courses must ensure an adequate 
number of qualified personnel to fulfill the purposes of the OSH Act, 
provide them with short-term training, inform them of the importance 
and proper use of safety and health equipment, and train employers and 
workers to recognize, avoid, and prevent unsafe and unhealthful working 
conditions. Under Section 21, OSHA awards training grants to nonprofit 
organizations to provide part of the required training. The agency 
requires organizations that receive these grants to submit quarterly 
progress reports that provide information on their grant-funded 
training activities; these reports allow OSHA to monitor the grantee's 
performance and to determine if an organization is using grant funds as 
specified in the grant application. For additional substantive 
information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the 
Federal Register on April 28, 2020 (85 FR 23534).
    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 
three (3) years. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than 
three (3) years without renewal. The DOL notes that information 
collection requirements submitted to the OMB for existing ICRs receive 
a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.
