Crawler, Locomotive, and Truck Cranes Standard; Extension of the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Approval of Information-Collection (Paperwork) Requirements

ACTION: Request for comment.
SUMMARY: OSHA solicits comment concerning its proposal to extend OMB approval of the information-collection requirements specified by its Crawler, Locomotive, and Truck Cranes Standard (29 CFR 1910.180). The paperwork provisions of this Standard specify requirements for developing, maintaining, and disclosing inspection records for cranes and ropes, as well as disclosing written reports of rated load tests. The purpose of each of these requirements is to prevent employees from using unsafe cranes and ropes, thereby reducing their risk of death or serious injury caused by a crane or rope failure during material handling.
DATES: Submit written comments on or before August 30, 2002.
ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to the Docket Office, Docket No. ICR-1218-0221 (2002), OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, Room N-2625, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693-2350. Commenters may transmit written comments on 10 pages or less by facsimile to (202) 693-1648.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Theda Kenney, Directorate of Safety Standards Programs, OSHA, U.S. Department of Labor, Room N-3609, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693-2044. A copy of the Agency's Information-Collection Request (ICR) supporting the need for the information collections specified by the Crawler, Locomotive, and Truck Cranes Standard is available for inspection and copying in the Docket Office, or by requesting a copy from Todd Owens at (202) 693-2444. For electronic copies of the ICR contact OSHA on the Internet at http://www.osha.gov/law-regs.html, and select "Information Collection Requests."
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 Crawler, Locomotive, and Truck Cranes Standard (i.e., "the Standard") specifies several paperwork requirements. The following sections describe who uses the information collected under each requirement, as well as how they use it.
