SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In the event a worker is injured while
operating a mechanical power press, Regulations 29 CFR 1910.217(g)
makes it mandatory for an employer to report, within 30 days of the
occurrence, all point-of-operation injuries to operators or other
employees either to the Director of the Directorate of Standards or to
the State Agency administering a plan approved by the Assistant
Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health. Particularly,
this information identifies the equipment used and conditions
associated with these injuries. These reports are a source of up-to-
date information on power press machines.
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 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 valid Control Number. See
5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this
information collection under Control Number 1218-0070. The current
approval is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2012; however, it should
be noted that existing information collection requirements 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 May 25, 2012 (77 FR 31396).
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 help ensure appropriate
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1218-0070.
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.
