California safety agency fines porn studio

Cites violations of condom laws

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

Cal/OSHA, the agency charged with enforcing workplace safety laws in California, has cited a porn studio for 'multiple violations of state condom and other safety laws, which exposed performers to sexually transmitted infections and illnesses.'

The agency set the fines for Third Rock Enterprises - also known as James Deen Productions - at $77,785.

The charges stem from a complaint filed with Cal/OSHA on January 12. Following up on the complaint, the agency's investigators visited a film shoot in Woodland Hills. There they found that 'producers did not protect performers through the use of condoms, as required by California's bloodborne pathogens standard.'

'Additionally, producers did not provide a vaccine or follow-up medical examination to employees who were potentially exposed to hepatitis B,' Cal/OSHA said in a statement.

Since 2012 porn studios operating in Los Angeles County have been required to have actors use condoms during porn filming.

'Cal/OSHA requires condom use in adult films to protect workers from exposure to HIV and other sexually transmitted infections,' said Cal/OSHA chief Juliann Sum.

'Third Rock Enterprises failed to protect employees from illness and injury while on set.'

Third Rock Enterprises is owned and operated by Bryan Sevilla, also known by his porn stage name, James Deen.

According to Cal/OSHA, Sevilla and his attorney initially refused to provide the agency with workplace safety information or permission to investigate.

The Los Angeles County Superior Court then issued a warrant that allowed Cal/OSHA to visit the film site and conduct an inspection.

Cal/OSHA cited Third Rock for failing to provide the requested safety records, in addition to the serious health-related violations. In total, Cal/OSHA cited the porn studio for four 'serious violations.'

'A serious violation is cited when there is a realistic possibility that death or serious harm could result from the actual hazardous condition,' Cal/OSHA noted in its statement.
