Information collection requests submitted to OMB

On May 30, 2014 the Department of Labor (DOL) submitted two Information Collection Requests sponsored by OSHA to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

In Accordance with the Paper Reduction Act (PRA), OSHA will submit revisions to the Notice of Alleged Safety and Health Hazards. This form is the primary though not exclusive means by which employees or their representatives can report to the DOL that violations of safety or health standard that threatens physical harm, or that an imminent danger exists. This request 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.

The DOL will also submit to OMB on behalf of OSHA an Information Collection Request titled Recordkeeping and Reporting Occupational Injuries and Illnesses. This ICR also seeks to extend PRA authority for recordkeeping and reporting occupational injuries and illness information collection.
