SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OSHA established the Safe + Sound Campaign, 
a voluntary effort to support the implementation of safety and health 
programs in businesses throughout the United States. The Campaign 
includes periodic activities and events, ranging from regular email 
updates to quarterly national Webinars to local meetings to an annual 
national stand down, designated to increase overall employer and 
employee awareness and understanding of safety and health programs and 
promote employer adoption of these programs. To gain information needed 
to support this effort, OSHA is proposing to survey, and in some cases 
interview, those participating in the Campaign activities. The goal of 
the information collection is to understand and respond to the needs of 
participants and publicly highlight outcomes to enhance the 
effectiveness of the Campaign. For additional substantive information 
about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal 
Register on December 9, 2020 (85 FR 79222).
    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.
