SACRAMENTO — Cal/OSHA officials today said that an advisory meeting will be held next month to discuss issues surrounding bloodborne pathogen exposure in the adult film industry.

The meeting is slated for Thursday, Nov. 10., in Oakland, Calif., at the Elihu Harris State Building — site of this past February’s dramatic Standards Board meeting where state-appointed officials effectively shot down draft proposal § 5193.1, which would have greatly expanded barrier protection for porn performers.

Cal/OSHA said Nov. 10 meeting is in response to a request by the Standards Board and two petitions granted by the board earlier this year. A large turnout at the hearing is expected.

Petition 560, filed by the FSC, and Petition 557, filed by the AHF, both request new regulatory language for § 5193, the current California law that wasn’t amended. The petitions were submitted after § 5193.1 was extinguished by the Standards Board in February.

At the Nov. 10 meeting, which comes two days after the general election that will decide Prop 60, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation’s initiative that would offer bounties on porn producers delivering condom-less sex scenes, Cal/OSHA will “evaluate the two petitions and the need to reinitiate rulemaking to address occupational exposures to bloodborne pathogens in the adult film industry,” regulators said.

Stakeholders and the public will have an opportunity to provide input on the petition items and the bloodborne pathogen hazards associated with working in the adult film industry. 

The “Bloodborne Pathogens Exposure in the Adult Film Industry Advisory Meeting” will be held Thursday, Nov. 10, at 10 a.m., lasting until 3:30 p.m. at the Elihu Harris State Building, 1515 Clay St., 2nd floor, Room 1, in Oakland, Calif.
