On March 14, 2017, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) extended the comment period on the proposed information collection entitled “Survey of Engineered Nanomaterial Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Practices.”  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.  NIOSH invites comment on:

  • Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of NIOSH, including whether the information shall have practical utility;
  • The accuracy of NIOSH’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information;
  • Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected;
  • Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and
  • Estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.

According to NIOSH, because of an improper docket opening, the comment period is extended from April 11, 2017, to May 11, 2017.  More information about the survey is available in our February 14, 2017, blog item, “NIOSH Seeks Comment on Proposed Survey of Engineered Nanomaterial OSH Practices.”
