SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OSHA-7 Form is used by OSHA personnel to 
report unhealthful and/or unsafe conditions in the workplace. The 
information is given to OSHA by employees who wish to report 
unhealthful and/or unsafe conditions at their place of employment. 
Employee reports are authorized by Section 8(f)(1) of the OSH Act. This 
information is used by OSHA to evaluate the alleged hazards and to 
schedule an inspection. The form is available in English and Spanish. 
OSHA-7 Form has also been translated into nine Asian American Pacific 
Islander languages. For additional substantive information about this 
ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on May 
11, 2020 (85 FR 27765).
    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.
