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.
