VIII. Paperwork Reduction Act

This final rule contains a collection of information requirement. Under 1910.126(g)(4), employers are required to determine how far away employees should remain when electrostatic paint detearing equipment is being used. This distance is called the "safe distance." The employer must conspicuously display this "safe distance" on a sign located near the equipment. OSHA does not believe that the provision imposes a burden on the employer to collect or display the information because OSHA believes the information has already been determined and displayed on the few, about 12, pieces of equipment in use today. Newer technology appears to have eliminated the need to manufacture or use electrostatic paint detearing equipment. OSHA solicited public comments on this information collection requirement. There were no comments submitted in response to the collection of information associated with this provision.

In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520), OSHA requested OMB approval of the collection of information requirement described above. On June 1, 1998, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) granted approval of the information requirement under OMB Control Number 1218-0237. The approval expires on June 30, 2001.

Under 5 CFR 1320.5(b), an Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless the collection displays a valid control number.
