The increase in respondents and responses and costs is due to a greater number of mines using underground diesel-powered equipment. In addition, this package now calculates the cost burden of the requirement that diesel fuel tanks and safety cans be conspicuously marked. The decrease of in the hour burden is a result of MSHA no longer including the burden hours associated with conducting the weekly examinations of diesel-powered equipment; only the recordkeeping hours incurred when a defect is discovered during those examinations.
