from www.dailynews.com – The last in a series of meetings to consider imposing additional safety regulations on adult film sets will be held Tuesday by the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health.

The public meeting will include discussions and comments by health advocates and others who have been lobbying for stricter standards on adult film sets and for tougher regulations to protect performers from HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Cal-OSHA officials say employers must establish an effective plan to limit exposure to blood-borne pathogens, including in semen and other bodily fluids. Currently, the code does not mandate the use of condom use.

Three production sites have been cited this year for violating the code, each receiving three citations. One of those sites was in Canoga Park and was associated with Hustler Video Productions, according to Cal-OSHA.

But advocates for those with HIV and AIDS say the regulators should mandate and enforce condom use on production sets in the adult entertainment industry.

In the last few years, a handful of actors and actresses have tested positive, prompting the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and the Los Angeles County Commission on HIV to demand legislation that would require condom use on production sets.

Tuesday’s meeting is merely a discussion of some possible changes, although there is no consensus on what those should be, said Deborah Gold, senior safety engineer in research and standard

“Right now, there’s not a commitment to bring any kind of proposal forward by the commission,” Gold said. “What we have put together is a discussion draft to take a look at regulatory language.”

Additional codes may be considered to address the transmission of diseases through oral sex, Gold said. The use and disposal of needles and personal razors on production sets also will be discussed.

The meeting follows the recent closure of the Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation in Sherman Oaks.

The clinic followed a protocol that required performers to be tested for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases every 30 days. Many said that form of self-regulation worked better than government regulation, which could force production to move to other states.

AIM shut down as a result of financial issues, but the 30-day testing for HIV will continue under the auspices of the Canoga Park based Coalition for Free Speech, officials said.

Tuesday’s Cal-OSHA meeting also comes a few weeks after the Los Angeles City Council in a 10-0 vote planned to ask state and county officials to allow Los Angeles to make the use of condoms on adult-film sets a condition of getting a film permit.
