educational programs--the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) Education
Centers Program and the OSHA Outreach Training Program. To be a
participant in the OTI Education Centers Program or the Outreach
Training Program, an individual/organization must provide the OSHA with

the applicant organization and to implement, oversee, and monitor the
OTI Education Centers and Outreach Training Programs, courses, and
trainers. The information collection requirements include the
following: Application to become an OSHA Training Institute Education

Program Requirements; Outreach Training Program Report Forms (includes

These information collections are 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 that
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 1218-0262.
OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3)
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is
scheduled to expire on October 31, 2013; however, it should be noted
that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New
requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional
substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice
published in the Federal Register on August 5, 2013 (78 FR 47419).
Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB,
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in
the ADDRESSES section by November 30, 2013. In order to help ensure
appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number
1218-0262. 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.
