Abstract
In June and October 1999 the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received health hazard evaluation (HHE) requests from a body piercing studio (Facility A) in Orlando, Florida, and a body piercing studio (Facility B) in Tallahassee, Florida, respectively. The owners' requests concerned potential occupational exposures to bloodborne pathogens during body piercing procedures. Both requests were prompted by the passage of a new rule (Chapter 64E-19 of the Florida Administrative Code), which requires the Florida Department of Health (DOH) to regulate body piercing salons.
