OMB Number: 1218-0NEW.
Affected Public: Business or other for-profit; Not-for-profit institutions; State, Local or Tribal Governments.
Number of Respondents: 6,582.

Description: The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is proposing a change to the language of the existing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) standard, 29 CFR 1910.132. This action is intended to clarify the Agency's longstanding intent that employers are required to pay for most items of PPE. In order to ensure the Agency has sufficient information on this matter, the Agency is planning on conducting a short survey of employers to inquire about their use of PPE and who pays for it currently. Some data from the survey will also be used to support the assigned protection factor portion of its respiratory protection rulemaking (29 CFR 1910.134), as well as its fall protection rulemaking (Subpart M).
Todd R. Owen,
Departmental Clearance Officer.
