Free Speech Coalition will outline details for Adult Production Health and Safety Services (APHSS) at an industry-wide meeting scheduled for this Thursday. The new program has been created to fill the gap left by the closure of the AIM clinic earlier this month.

Producers, performers and any industry members with concerns about production health and safety issues are encouraged to attend. FSC Executive Director Diane Duke will explain the APHSS rollout, and FSC Board members Peter Acworth (Kink.com) and Christian Mann (Evil Angel) also will discuss aspects of the new database, APHSS advisory board, testing facilities and health protocols. Performer privacy issues will be addressed.

“We encourage industry members to attend Thursday’s meeting and learn about the new program, as well as ask questions. Performers and producers will have a chance to fill out applications for the database,” FSC Executive Director Diane Duke said.

“This meeting is also important because we will have information on the CalOSHA Advisory Committee meeting to be held in Los Angeles on June 7,” Duke added. “That may be the last public CalOSHA meeting to discuss adult production health and safety, before the committee makes suggestions for new regulations that are expected to be handed down in September. We encourage industry members to attend that meeting, also.”

The APHSS meeting is to be held this Thursday, May 26, at 1pm, at the Sportsmen’s Lodge located at 12833 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604. This meeting is for industry members only and is not open to the general public.

Following the meeting at 3:30pm, a press conference will be held in the same location.

Media representatives will have an opportunity to interview Gary A. Richwald, MD MPH, who has been proposed for APHSS Medical Consultant.

Dr. Richwald is a public health and communicable disease expert. For 12 years from 1989 to 2000, Dr. Richwald served as the Director and Chief Physician of the Los Angeles County STD Program, the largest provider of sexual health and disease prevention-related services in California.

Attorney Karen Tynan will be available at the press conference. She will serve on the APHSS Advisory Board as its workplace safety attorney. Tynan has extensive expertise in the area of OSHA litigation and has been working with adult production companies, agents, and other entertainment companies to defeat subpoenas, appeal citations, and litigate injunctions during the past two years.

Duke, Acworth and Mann will also be available to answer questions at the press conference.

If you are an industry member and would like to attend the meeting or need more information, please, contact joanne@freespeechcoalition.com.
