Thursday morning, AIDS Healthcare Foundation will hold another protest publicity stunt at a scheduled meeting of Cal/OSHA in Sacramento, to castigate the agency for a five-year delay in doing AHF’s bidding vis-à-vis regulations concerning adult film production. In February, Cal/OSHA previewed draft “bloodborne pathogen” regulations for adult film production, but public hearing on the proposed regs was delayed beyond tomorrow’s scheduled meeting of the agency’s Stanards Board.
