[Docket No. OSHA-2007-0066]
RIN 1218-AC01

 
Cranes and Derricks in Construction; Approval of Information 
Collection Requirements

AGENCY: Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 
Department of Labor.

ACTION: Final rule; notice of the Office of Management and Budget's 
(OMB) approval of information collection requirements.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: On August 9, 2010, OSHA published a final rule revising the 
Cranes and Derricks Standard and related sections of the Construction 
Standard to update and specify industry work practices necessary to 
protect employees during the use of cranes and derricks in 
construction. That final standard also addressed advances in the 
designs of cranes and derricks, related hazards, and the qualifications 
of employees needed to operate them safely. Those requirements 
contained information collection requirements for which approval was 
needed from the Office of Management and Budget. This document 
announces that OMB has approved those collection of information 
requirements and makes the appropriate regulatory change to reflect 
that approval. The OMB approval number is 1218-0261.

DATES: Effective November 8, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Todd Owen, OSHA, Directorate of Standards 
and Guidance, Room N-3609, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue, 
NW., Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693-2222.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OSHA published a final rule for the Cranes and 
Derricks in Construction standard on August 9, 2010 (75 FR 47905-48177), 
after determining that hazards related to cranes and derricks used in 
construction pose a significant risk of injury or death to employees in 
the workplace. These requirements are necessary to provide protection from 
these hazards. The final rule becomes effective on November 8, 2010. As 
required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA-95) (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), 
the Federal Register notice for the Cranes and Derricks in Construction final 
rule states that employers do not have to comply with the collection of 
information requirements until OMB approves those collection of information 
requirements and the Department of Labor publishes a notice in the Federal 
Register announcing this approval and the control number assigned by OMB to 
the Cranes and Derricks in Construction's collection of information 
requirements. Under 5 CFR 1320.5(b), an agency may not conduct or 
sponsor a collection of information unless: (1) The collection of 
information displays a current valid OMB control number and (2) the 
agency informs members of the public required to respond to the 
collection of information that they are not required to do so unless 
the agency displays a currently valid OMB control number for the 
collection of information.
    On August 9, 2010, the Department of Labor submitted the Cranes and 
Derricks in Construction information collection request for the final 
rule to OMB for approval in accordance with PRA-95. On November 1, 
2010, OMB approved the collections of information contained in the 
final rule and assigned these collections of information OMB Control 
Number 1218-0261, titled "Cranes and Derricks in Construction (29 CFR 
part 1926, subpart CC)." The approval for collecting the information 
expires on November 30, 2013.
    The final Cranes and Derricks standard imposes new information 
collection requirements for purposes of PRA-95. These requirements 
impose a duty to produce and maintain records on employers that 
implement controls and take other measures to protect workers from 
hazards related to cranes and derricks used in construction. 
Accordingly, construction businesses with employees who operate or work 
in the vicinity of cranes and derricks must have, as applicable, the 
following documents on file and available at the job site: Equipment 
ratings, employee training records, written authorizations from 
qualified individuals, and qualification program audits. During an 
inspection, OSHA will have access to the records to determine 
compliance under conditions specified by the standard. An employer's 
failure to generate and disclose the information required in this 
standard will affect significantly the Agency's effort to control and 
reduce injuries and fatalities related to the use of cranes and 
derricks in construction.
    The table below identifies the new collections of information 
contained in the final rule.
