  SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

  I. Background

      The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce
  paperwork and respondent (i.e., employer) burden, conducts a
  preclearance consultation program to provide the public with an
  opportunity to comment on proposed and continuing collections of
  information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995
  (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program ensures that information
  is in the desired format, reporting burden (time and costs) is minimal,
  collection instruments are clearly understood, and OSHA's estimate of
  the information collection burden is accurate. The Occupational Safety
  and Health Act of 1970 (the OSH Act) (29 U.S.C. 651 et seq.) authorizes
  information collection by employers as necessary or appropriate for
  enforcement of the OSH Act or for developing information regarding the
  causes and prevention of occupational injuries, illnesses, and
  accidents (29 U.S.C. 657). The OSH Act also requires OSHA to obtain
  such information with minimum burden upon employers, especially those
  operating small businesses, and to reduce to the maximum extent
  feasible unnecessary duplication of efforts in obtaining information
  (29 U.S.C. 657).
      The basic purpose of the collections of information in the Ionizing
  Radiation Standard is to document that employers are providing their
  workers with protection from ionizing radiation exposure. The
  collections of information contained in the Standard include:
  Monitoring worker exposure to ionizing radiation, posting caution signs
  at radiation areas, reporting worker overexposures to OSHA, maintaining
  exposure records, and providing exposure records to current and former
  workers.

  II. Special Issues for Comment

      OSHA has a particular interest in comments on the following issues:
       Whether the proposed collections of information are
  necessary for the proper performance of the Agency's functions,
  including whether the information is useful;
       The accuracy of OSHA's estimate of the burden (time and
  costs) of the collections of information, including the validity of the
  methodology and assumptions used;
       The quality, utility, and clarity of the information
  collected; and
       Ways to minimize the burden on employers who must comply,
  for example, by using automated or other technological information
  collection and transmission techniques.

  III. Proposed Actions

      OSHA is requesting an adjustment increase of 6,719 burden hours
  from 45,217 to 51,936 hours. This increase is the result of an
  adjustment of the number of establishments and workers used in this
  analysis based on updated data. The increase is off-set by a reduction
  in burden hours due to the determination that employers providing
  training to workers under paragraph (i)(2) is not considered to be a
  collection of information. Also, the increase is off-set by a reduction
  in the predicted number of notification of incidents (paragraph (l))
  and of overexposure and excessive levels and concentrations (paragraph
  (m)). The total estimated number of establishments affected by the
  regulation increased from 12,719 to 13,012, a total adjustment of 293
  more establishments.
      Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
      Title: Ionizing Radiation Standard (29 CFR 1910.1096).
      OMB Control Number: 1218-0103.
      Affected Public: Business or other for-profits.
      Number of Respondents: 13,012.


      Frequency: On Occasion; Quarterly; Annually; Immediately; Within 24
  hours; Within 30 days.
      Average Time per Response: Various.
      Estimated Number of Responses: 293,075.
      Estimated Total Burden Hours: 51,936.
      Estimated Cost (Operation and Maintenance): $7,388,465.
