SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 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 effort in obtaining information (29 
U.S.C. 657). The information collection requirements specified in the 
Acrylonitrile (AN) Standard (29 CFR 1910.1045) protect workers from the 
adverse health effects that may result from their exposure to AN. The 
major information collection requirements of the AN Standard include 
notifying workers of their AN exposures, implementing a written 
compliance program, providing examining physicians with specific 
information, ensuring that workers receive a copy of their medical 
examination results, maintaining worker's exposure monitoring and 
medical records for specific periods, and providing access to these 
records by OSHA, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and 
Health, the affected workers, and designated representatives. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on February 15, 2022 (87 FR 
    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 
    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.
