NIOSH Submits Proposed Survey to OMB, Will Accept Comments for 30 Days

On July 17, 2017, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) published a Federal Register notice announcing it submitted a proposed information collection to the Office of Management and Budget for review and approval. The proposed project is "Survey of Engineered Nanomaterial Occupational Safety and Health Practices." As reported in our February 14, 2017, blog item, NIOSH invited comment on the proposed survey on February 10, 2017. See http://nanotech.lawbc.com/2017/02/niosh-seeks-comment-on-proposed-survey-of-engineered-nanomaterial-osh-practices/ NIOSH will survey companies that manufacture, distribute, fabricate, formulate, use, or provide services related to engineered nanomaterials. NIOSH will compile a sample of 600 companies from lists of industry associations, research reports, marketing databases, and web-based searches. Of the 600 selected companies, NIOSH states that it anticipates that 500 will complete the survey within two years. The goal of the project is to assess the relevance and impact of NIOSH's contribution to guidelines and risk mitigation practices for safe handling of engineered nanomaterials in the workplace. The intended use of the data is to inform NIOSH's research agenda to enhance its relevance and impact on worker safety and health in the context of engineered nanomaterials. Publication of the July 17, 2017, Federal Register notice began a 30-day comment period.
