SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to maintain PRA authorization
for the Student Data Form, Form OSHA-182. The Occupational Safety and
Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act) authorizes the OSHA to conduct education
and training courses. See 29 U.S.C. 670. These courses must educate an
adequate number of qualified personnel to fulfill OSH Act purposes,
provide personnel with short-term training, inform students of the
importance and proper use of safety and health equipment, and train
employers and workers to recognize, avoid, and prevent unsafe and
unhealthful working conditions. The OSHA Training Institute provides
basic, intermediate, and advanced training and education in
occupational safety and health for Federal and State compliance
officers, OSHA professionals and technical-support personnel,
employers, workers, organizations representing workers and employers,
educators who develop curricula and teach occupational safety and
health courses, and representatives of professional safety and health
Students attending OSHA Training Institute courses complete a one-
page Student Data Form on the first day of class. The Student Data Form
collects information under five major categories; course information,
personal data, employer data, emergency contacts, and student groups.
The OSHA uses information provided on the Student Data Form to contact
a designated person in case of an emergency, to prepare certain OSH
Act-required reports, tuition receipts, to evaluate training output,
and to make decisions regarding program/course revisions, budget
support, and tuition costs.
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 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 1218-0172.
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 December 31, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend PRA
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years,
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related
notice published in the Federal Register on August 23, 2013 (78 FR
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 1218-0172.
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.
