SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    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 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that 
information is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) 
is minimal, collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA's 
estimate of the information collection burden is accurate. The 
Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (the 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 efforts in 
obtaining information (29 U.S.C. 657).
    The Standard on Dipping and Coating Operations (29 CFR 
1910.126(g)(4)) requires employers to post a conspicuous sign near each 
piece of electrostatic detearing equipment that notifies employees of 
the minimum safe distance they must maintain between goods undergoing 
electrostatic detearing and the electrodes or conductors of the 
equipment used in the process. Doing so reduces the likelihood of 
igniting the explosive chemicals used in electrostatic detearing 
operations.

II. Special Issues for Comment

    OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:
     Whether the proposed information collection requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the Agency's functions to 
protect workers, including whether the information is useful;
     The accuracy of OSHA's estimate of the burden (time and 
costs) of the information collection requirement, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     The quality, utility, and clarity of the information 
collected; and
     Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply; 
for example, by using automated or other technological information 
collection and transmission techniques.

III. Proposed Actions

    OSHA is requesting that OMB extend its approval of the information 
collection requirement contained in the Standard on Dipping and Coating 
Operations (Dip Tanks) (29 CFR 1910.126(g)(4)). The Agency is 
requesting to retain its previous burden hour estimate of one (1) hour. 
The Agency will summarize the comments submitted in response to this 
notice, and will include this summary in the request to OMB.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved information 
collection.

1910.126(g)(4)).
