OSHA Seeks Comments on Proposed Fire Brigade Information Extension

OSHA is seeking public comment on its proposal (Docket No. OSHA-2007-0079) to extend the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) approval of the information collection requirements specified in its Standard on Fire Brigades (29 CFR 1910.156).

In the Nov. 21 Federal Registar, the agency has requested that OMB extend its approval of the information collection requirements contained in the standard by decreasing from 6,042 hours to 5,048 hours for a total decrease of 994 hours.

OSHA says the decrease is a result of updated data estimating that the total number of establishments requiring new or revised organizational statements has declined from 2,797 to 2,337, and that the number of fire brigade members has declined from 559,390 to 467,330. OSHA says it will summarize the comments submitted in response to this notice and will include this summary in the request to OMB.

All submissions must include the agency name and docket number. All comments, including any personal information provided, are placed in the public docket without change, and may be made available online at www.regulations.gov.
