Derricks Standard; Extension of the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Approval of Information-Collection (Paperwork) Requirements
AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Labor.
ACTION: Request for comment.
SUMMARY: OSHA solicits comment concerning its proposal to extend OMB approval of the information-collection requirements specified by its general industry Derricks Standard (29 CFR 110.181). The paperwork provisions of this Standard specify requirements for maintaining or posting load and capacity information and for developing, maintaining, and disclosing inspection records for ropes used on derricks. The purpose of each of these requirements is to prevent employees from using derricks beyond their rated load and capacity and from using unsafe ropes, thereby, reducing their risk of death or serious injury cased by a derrick component or rope failure.
DATES: Submit written comments on or before August 5, 2002.
ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to the Docket Office, Docket No. ICR-1218-0222(2002), OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, Room N-2625, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone: (202) 693-2350.

The Department of Labor, as part of its 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-95) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and cost) is minimal, collection instruments are understandable, and OSHA's estimate of the information-collection burden is correct.
The Derricks Standard specifies two paperwork requirements. The following sections describe who uses the information collected under each requirements, as well as how they use it. The purpose of these requirements is to prevent death and serious injuries to employees by ensuring that the derrick is not used to lift loads its rated capacity and that all the ropes are inspected for wear and tear.
OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:
OSHA proposes to extend the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) approval of the collection-of-information requirements specified by its Derricks Standard (29 CFR 1910.181).
