[Docket No. OSHA-2011-0189]

the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Approval of Information
Collection (Paperwork) Requirements

ACTION: Request for public comments.
SUMMARY: OSHA solicits public comments concerning the proposal to
extend the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) approval of the
information collection requirements specified in the Standard on
Servicing Multi-Piece and Single Piece Rim Wheels. The paperwork
provisions of the Standard includes a requirement that the manufacturer
or a Registered Professional Engineer certify that repaired restraining
devices and barriers meet the strength requirements specified in the
Standard and a requirement that defective wheels and wheel components
be marked or tagged.
DATES: Comments must be submitted (postmarked, sent, or received) by
June 1, 2021.
Electronically: You may submit comments, including attachments,
electronically at http://www.regulations.gov, the Federal eRulemaking
Portal. Follow the instructions online for submitting comments.
Docket: To read or download comments or other material in the
docket, go to http://www.regulations.gov. Documents in the docket are
listed in the http://www.regulations.gov index; however, some
information (e.g., copyrighted material) is not publicly available to
read or download through the website. All submissions, including
copyrighted material, are available for inspection through the OSHA
Docket Office. Contact the OSHA Docket Office for assistance in
locating docket submissions.
Instructions: All submissions must include the agency name and the
OSHA docket number for this Federal Register notice (OSHA-2011-0189).
OSHA will place comments and requests to speak, including personal
information, in the public docket, which may be available online.
Therefore, OSHA cautions interested parties about submitting personal
information such as Social Security numbers and birthdates. For further
information on submitting comments, see the ``Public Participation''
heading in the section of this notice titled SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Theda Kenney or Seleda Perryman,
Directorate of Standards and Guidance, OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor;
telephone (202) 693-2222.
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. The
Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et
seq.) authorizes information collection by employers as necessary or
appropriate for enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing
information regarding the causes and prevention of occupational
injuries, illnesses, and accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also
requires that OSHA obtain such information with minimum burden upon
employers, especially those operating small businesses, and to reduce
to the maximum extent feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in
obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657).
Certification of repair (Sec. 1910.177(d)(3)(iv)). This paragraph
requires that when restraining devices and barriers are removed from
service because they are defective, they shall not be returned to
service until they are repaired and reinspected. If the repair is
structural, the manufacturer or a Registered Professional Engineer must
certify that the strength requirements specified in Sec.
1910.177(d)(3)(i) of the Standard have been met.
The certification records are used to assure that equipment has
been properly repaired. The certification records also provide the most
efficient means for OSHA compliance officers to determine that an
employer is complying with the Standard.
Marking or tagging of wheel components (Sec. 1910.177(e)(2)). This
paragraph requires that defective wheels and wheel components ``be
marked or tagged unserviceable and removed from the service area.''
Under this requirement, OSHA is providing employers with sufficient
information from which they can derive the wording to use in marking
the object or constructing a tag. Therefore, this provision imposes no
paperwork burden because it falls within the portion of 5 CFR
1320(c)(2) that states, ``The public disclosure of information
originally supplied by the Federal government to the recipient for the
purpose of disclosure to the public is not included within this
definition [of `collection of information']''.
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 that OMB extend the approval of the information
collection requirements contained in the Standard on Servicing Multi-
Piece and Single Piece Rim Wheels (29 CFR 1910.177). OSHA is proposing
to retain the current burden hour estimate of one (1) hour. The agency
will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice and
will include this summary in the request to OMB.
Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Title: Servicing Multi-Piece and Single Piece Rim Wheels (29 CFR
