SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for
revisions to the Notice of Alleged Safety and Health Hazards, Form
OSHA-7, information collection. Respondents use Form OSHA-7 to report
unhealthful and/or unsafe conditions in the workplace to the OSHA. The
OSHA uses this information to evaluate the alleged hazards and to
schedule an inspection. This information collection has been classified
as a revision, because the agency proposes to include a question about
whether the respondent is a current or former employee of the employer
cited in the complaint. The Occupational Safety and Health Act
authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 651, 657.
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 1218-0064. The current approval is scheduled to
expire on May 31, 2014; however, the DOL notes 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 January 24, 2014 (79 FR 4180).
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 June 30, 2014. In order to help ensure
appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number
1218-0064. 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.
