SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OSHA awards grants to non-profit
organizations to provide training under the Occupation Safety and
Health Act. To obtain such a grant, an organization must complete the
training grant application. The OSHA uses the information in this
application to evaluate: the organization's competence to provide the
proposed training (including the qualifications of the personnel who
manage and implement the training); the goals and objectives of the
proposed training program; a work plan that describes in detail the
tasks that the organization will implement to meet these goals and
objectives; the appropriateness of the proposed costs; and compliance
with Federal regulations governing nonprocurement, debarment, and
suspension, maintaining a drug-free workplace, and lobbying activities.
Also required is a program summary that Agency officials use to review
and evaluate the highlights of the overall proposal. After awarding a
training grant, the OSHA uses the work plan and budget information
provided in the application to monitor the organization's progress in
meeting training goals and objectives, as well as planned expenditures.
The initial grant award is for one year.
This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and
the public is generally not required to respond to an information
collection, unless it is currently approved by the OMB under the PRA
and 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 OMB approval for this information collection under OMB
Control Number 1218-0020. The current OMB approval is scheduled to
expire on November 30, 2010; however, it should be noted that
information collections submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month
extension while they undergo review. For additional information, see
the related notice published in the Federal Register on September 21,
2010 (75 FR 57503).
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 the appropriate consideration,
comments should reference OMB Control Number 1218-0020. 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.
