More On the Proposed Mandatory Condoms Issue

from www.laweekly.com – Following a campaign by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, the California Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board (Cal-OSHA) has recommended that an advisory committee be convened to help it decided whether or not to require condoms on the sets of adult films in the state.

As we told you, the foundation filed a petition with Cal-OSHA in December asking it to require condoms on-set: The organization argues that state law already requires such worker protection. “In our view the current regulation, which is about preventing the transmission of blood-borne pathogens in a work place — most often in a hospital or medical setting — also applies to the porn industry,” AHF spokeswoman Lori Yeghiayan told us. “We’re asking for compliance.”

“In order to address the specific concerns attendant to the adult film industry and in order to address any federal equivalence issues, the Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Division) recommends that an advisory committee be convened to consider the possible amendment of Section 5193,” Cal-OSHA states. ” … It is apparent to the Board that serious consideration should be given to the possible amendment” of state work rules when it comes to the porn industry.

The committee will include porn-industry stake-holders, according to the statement.
