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.
