This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Notice of public meeting.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be holding a two-day Buy Quiet Workshop. The Workshop is a National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) activity jointly organized by the NORA Construction Sector and Manufacturing Sector Programs, and the NIOSH Hearing Loss Prevention Cross-sector Program. The purpose of the Workshop is to determine feasibility and functionality of Buy Quiet programs and to explore proactive steps to ensure successful implementation. The Workshop goal is to stimulate the wider adoption of current and future engineering noise controls on machinery and equipment and to motivate the development and implementation of Buy Quiet programs for the Construction and Manufacturing industries.
Date and Time: November 9-10, 2011, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
Place: Robert A. Taft Laboratories, Taft Auditorium, 4676 Columbia Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45226.

Recommended Attendees: Purchasing agents and buyers of construction and manufacturing machinery and equipment who believe “Buy Quiet” programs can be effectively and efficiently woven into existing procurement processes.
Construction and manufacturing employers who wish to investigate the cost effectiveness of “Buy Quiet” and determine how best to use the program to demonstrate best available engineering noise control technology is being deployed at their worksites.
Noise control engineers, product designers and manufacturers wishing to learn how best to gather and present noise level information and to provide necessary information to their customers in support of “Buy Quiet” programs.
Other safety and health professionals and employee representatives who want to assist in bringing “Buy Quiet” programs into the workplace.
Format: Day one will provide presentations from invited speakers. Day two will combine presentations with break-out sessions and roundtable discussions. The break-outs and roundtable will provide participants the opportunity to share relevant experiences and aspirations on process techniques for implementation, incentives and barriers for implementation, and research to practice products and partnerships.
This workshop is not a sales event nor will exhibits of any kind be allowed. Any attendees who attempt to use this meeting for sales purposes will be asked to leave. This meeting is to explore methods for the development and implementation of “Buy Quiet” programs that meet the needs of the business community identified as part of the Construction and Manufacturing industry sectors.
