    Authority:  44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D).


SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Consistent with Occupational Safety and 
Health Act (OSH Act) section 21 authority, the OSHA created two 
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 
certain information. The requested information is necessary to evaluate 
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 
Center (OTI Education Center); OTI Education Centers Monthly Summary 
Report for the OTI Education Centers and the Outreach Training Program 
Monthly Summary Report; Statement of Compliance with Outreach Training 
Program Requirements; Outreach Training Program Report Forms (includes 
Construction, General Industry, Maritime, and Disaster Site);
Online Outreach Training Program Report; Active Trainer List; OSHA 
Training Institute Student Survey (OSHA Form 49 11-05 Edition) (OMB 
1225-0059); Attendance Documentation for OTI Education Centers; 
Outreach Online Training Certification Statement; Instructor and Staff 
Resumes (this includes anyone who may be assigned to conduct OSHA 
classes, contractor, subcontractor, employee, adjunct professor, etc.; 
and Course Material, upon Request by the OSHA from OTI Education 
Centers. The ICR has been classified as a revision, because the OSHA 
seeks to add two forms recording (1) outreach trainer audits and (2) 
activities outside of an OSHA region where the education center is 
located.
    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.
