collection request (ICR) titled, "Temporary Labor Camps Standard," to

including a description of the likely respondents, proposed frequency

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Temporary Labor Camps Standard makes it
mandatory for covered employers to report to the local public health
officer the name and address of any individual in the camp known to
have, or suspected of having, a communicable disease. Employers are
also required to notify local public health authorities of each
occurrence of a suspected case of food poisoning or of an unusual
prevalence of any illnesses in which fever, diarrhea, sore throat,
vomiting, or jaundice is a prevalent symptom. These reporting
requirements are necessary to minimize the possibility of communicable
disease epidemics spreading throughout the camps and endangering the
health of the camp residents. In addition, the Standard requires
marking "for men" and "for women" on certain toilet rooms.
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 1218-0096. The current
approval is scheduled to expire on October 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 31395).
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 1218-0096.
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.
