SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The OSHA standard on manlifts requires that
each manlift be inspected at least once every 30 days, and it requires
that limit switches be checked weekly. A certification record of the
inspection must be prepared upon completion of the inspection. The
record must contain the date of the inspection, the signature of the
person who performed the inspection, and the serial number or other
identifier of the inspected manlift. The OSHA requires this information
to be collected by employers for determining the cumulative maintenance
status of a manlift and or taking the necessary preventive actions to
ensure worker safety.
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 1218-0236. The current OMB approval is scheduled to
expire on January 31, 2011; 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 October 21,
2010 (75 FR 65033).
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 1218-0226. 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.
