SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The DOL is seeking OMB reauthorization of
the OSHA-sponsored Student Data Form, OSHA Form 182. The DOL, as part
of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden,
submits information collections for OMB consideration after conducting
a preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an
opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing information
collection requirements in accordance with the PRA. See 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 the estimate of the information
collection burden is accurate.
The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) authorizes
the OSHA to conduct education and training courses. See 29 U.S.C. 670.
These courses must educate an adequate number of qualified personnel to
fulfill the purposes of the OSH Act, provide them with short-term
training, inform them of the importance and proper use of safety and
health equipment, and train employers and workers to recognize, avoid,
and prevent unsafe and unhealthful working conditions. The OSHA
Training Institute provides basic, intermediate, and advanced training
and education in occupational safety and health for Federal and State
compliance officers, OSHA professionals and technical-support
personnel, employers, workers, organizations representing workers and
employers, educators who develop curricula and teach occupational
safety and health courses, and representatives of professional safety
and health groups.
Students attending OSHA Training Institute courses complete a one-page
Student Data Form on the first day of class. The Student Data Form collects
information under five major categories; course information, personal data,
employer data, emergency contacts, and student groups. The OSHA uses information
provided on the Student Data Form to contact a designated person in case of
an emergency, to prepare certain OSH Act-required reports, tuition receipts,
to evaluate training output, and to make decisions regarding program/course
revisions, budget support, and tuition costs.
The Student Data Form constitutes an information collection within
the meaning of the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or
sponsor a collection of information unless it is currently approved by
the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control
Number. Furthermore, the public is generally not required to respond to
a collection of information unless it 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 if the collection of
information does not display a currently valid OMB Control Number. See
5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6.
The DOL obtains approval for this information collection under OMB
Control Number 1218-0172, and the current approval is scheduled to
expire on October 31, 2010. For additional information, see the related
notice published in the Federal Register on July 8, 2010 (75 FR 39279).
Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB,
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in
the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in
the Federal Register. In order to ensure appropriate consideration,
comments should reference OMB Control Number 1218-0172. The OMB is
particularly interested in comments that:
Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency,
including whether the information will have practical utility;
Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the
information to be collected; and
Minimize the burden of the collection of information on
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting
electronic submission of responses.
