Very interesting outcome on BBP topic - liquid solidifers

My orignial question;
BBP question. Liquid solidifier comes in a powder or liquid. You then can pour into say a disposable bowl of water used on a client for cleaning the skin on face or a tattoo rinse cup used to rinse tubes of color when tattooing. Any hoo used for long time now. I sprinkle into cup or bowl then set and put in trash as know longer a liquid. It also cannot be re-hydrated. For me, I then wrap all disposable used during tattooing in plastic and toss.

Some one is telling would still be BBP and have to go in Bio bag. I disagree as no longer a liquid and can not get a drop of blood out of it??????????????? Especially when most sop up liquid with a paper towel and toss in trash. That is still liquid and can be re-hydrated???

Thoughts please. Jane


Generally, a substance is considered regualated waste if it is liquid, compressible, etc. HOWEVER, dried or caked blood or other OPIM that are capable of releasing blood may also be considered regulated waste. Consider the reactivatio of a dried blood sample, for example. Here's a letter of interpretation: Joe T

Teika Tanksley
2289 Rankin Ave
Columbus, OH 43211-2376

Dear Ms. Tanksley:

Thank you for your letter to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Your letter was routed to another office before being forwarded to the Directorate of Enforcement Programs in OSHA's National Office. You had several specific questions regarding disposal of blood and other infectious waste. This letter constitutes OSHA's interpretation only of the requirements discussed and may not be applicable to any question(s) or scenarios not delineated within your original correspondence. We apologize for any delay in responding to your inquiry. For clarification, your questions have been listed below followed by OSHA's responses.

Question 1: What are the policies for disposal of blood/body fluids and infectious waste? Is blood treated differently than other body fluids?

Reply 1: The final disposal of all regulated waste must be in accordance with applicable regulations of the United States, States and Territories, and political subdivisions of States and Territories [29 CFR 1910.1030(d)(4)(iii)(C)].

OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogens Standard, 29 CFR 1910.1030, has provisions for the protection of employees during the containment, storage, and transport of regulated waste other than contaminated sharps [29 CFR 1910.1030(d)(4)(iii)(B)]. The bloodborne pathogens standard defines regulated waste as liquid or semi-liquid blood or other potentially infectious material (OPIM); contaminated items that would release blood or OPIM in a liquid or semi-liquid state if compressed; items that are caked with dried blood or OPIM and are capable of releasing these materials during handling; contaminated sharps; and pathological and microbiological wastes containing blood or OPIM [29 CFR 1910.1030(b)].

In general, regulated wastes, other than contaminated sharps, must be placed in containers which are: (i) Closable; (ii) Constructed to contain all contents and prevent leakage of fluids during handling, storage, transport or shipping; (iii) Labeled or color-coded in accordance with paragraphs (g)(1)(i); (iv) Closed prior to removal to prevent spillage or protrusion of contents during handling, storage, transport, or shipping [29 CFR 1910.1030(d)(4)(iii)(B)(1)(i)-(iv)].

Question 2: Is it acceptable to dispose of items that have blood or body fluids present in either septic systems or normal garbage? If so, how much blood and body fluids can be present?

Reply 2: Please see our reply to question #1 for OSHA's definition and requirements for containerization of regulated waste as well as information on the requirements for final disposal of regulated waste. It is the employer's responsibility to determine the existence of regulated waste. This determination is not based on actual volume of blood, but rather on the potential to release blood, (e.g., when compacted in the waste container).

Question 3: What are the repercussions when addressing facilities where violations have been found on improper disposal, and what are the common disposal-related violations found during OSHA inspections
Reply 3: When OSHA conducts an inspection addressing regulated waste concerns, compliance with the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. If OSHA determines that sufficient evidence exists that the standard has been violated, a citation carrying monetary penalties may be issued to the employer. Over the past 5 years, OSHA has issued numerous violations for improper containerization of regulated waste [i.e., violations of section 1910.1030(d)(4)(iii)(B)(1) of the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard].

Question 4: Are there different guidelines for body fluid disposals with clinics versus hospitals?

Reply 4: Employers in clinics and hospitals must comply with the Bloodborne Pathogens Standard. Employers must evaluate their individual workplaces and institute measures to eliminate or minimize employee exposure to blood or OPIM based on the unique set of scenarios or tasks in the facility. An exposure control plan is the employer's written program which is required to outline the protective measures taken.

Thank you for your interest in occupational safety and health. We hope you find this information helpful. OSHA requirements are set by statute, standards, and regulations. Our interpretation letters explain these requirements and how they apply to particular circumstances, but they cannot create additional employer obligations. This letter constitutes OSHA's interpretation of the requirements discussed. Note that our enforcement guidance may be affected by changes to OSHA rules. Also, from time to time we update our guidance in response to new information. To keep apprised of such developments, you can consult OSHA's website at If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the Office of Health Enforcement at 202-693-2190.

Libra............ I like this one...........

Libra (September 23 - October 22)


You are well into the first phase of a significant shift in your life that is impacting all types of your relationships, yet you aren't quite ready for all the pieces to fall into place. You might even postpone an important personal event so you can buy yourself some much-needed time for productivity. There's really no need to worry about what will happen in the future because current circumstances will ultimately lead you to your final destination.

"The Jade Monkey" Tattoo location update

The Jade Monkey Tattoo & Art Gallery The Jade Monkey is relocating! We are securing a better location as we speak that will be more accessable and better suited to our needs. As it turns out, our current location is not properly zoned for a tattoo shop (big suprise to us too!) which provides us an opportunity to find a facility that is more appropriate to operate from.

In... the meantime. we will be continue to work out of our current location until Aug 26th. After which we will move to a temporary studio while we go through the process of setting up the new shop. As always we guarantee not only clean equipment and quality work, but genuinely interested artists who are dedicated in providing a memorable experience for our collectors.

For our final month here at the current spot. We'll be offering a 25% off ALL TATTOOS special through August.We are also continuing our second friday art show on August 13th starting at 5pm, which will double as our closing party celebration as we move on to bigger and better things! Don't miss out! Time is limited and we are booking up fast! Stay tuned for more information regarding our temporary location and updates regarding the new spot!

The Jade Monkey - bringing a new level of experience to Body Mod Art! Ink. Art. Life.

Jane will be a guest artist until all is settled at The Monkey and Lady Luck Phoenix.

My Tattoo...In addition to consent

My Tattoo

Full Name; ____________________________________

Date: _________________________________________

Treating your new tattoo and skin with respect to proper hygiene is crucial to a clean heal. Please DO NOT; go in the sun, tanning bed, use fake n bake, swim, soak in a tub or use a hot tub, until healed. Please use sun screen once healed too.

During healing of your tattoo it is a wound. Be very careful of anything that could contaminate the area. Things like soiled sheets, clothing, and furniture can cause infection, Staph or MRSA. Also keep in mind, if skin comes in contact with dirty hands, nails, pets, grime, friction, dirt etc. KEEP YOUR SKIN CLEAN.

None of these things can happen while getting your tattoo with Jane Adler. Why not? Because all implements, colors, etc used during your tattoo are single service and all tools are pre-sterilized and also single use. However, it can the second you leave my presence,

Do not listen to friends or family during healing and follow all written instructions to the best of your ability. If any sign of infection occurs seek medical treatment. Redness and swelling post tattoo is normal. So is flaking and itching during the healing process.

Allergic reaction can happen with any traditional tattoo. Often triggered by a photo sensitive reaction to sun exposure. Even with a patch color test only a medical professional can confirm any reaction. Often times it is sensitivity to after care. Please avoid all antibiotic ointments. You agree to continue with your tattoo understanding a long term reaction can happen even though rare and Jane Adler is not liable.

You authorize Jane Adler to take a picture of your tattoo and she may us in portfolio or other. All faces are cropped for client privacy.

You have disclosed any medical conditions that would cause a stronger chance of being prone to infection like heart issues, diabetes, etc. You are also NOT on Accutane. Must be off Accutane for 1 year until any tattoo work can be done. If prone to fainting please inform Jane Adler and only get tattooed if have eaten a good meal and are not under the influence. You cannot be pregnant or breast feeding and get tattooed.

All the above has been read and understood by the above client. You are also over 18.
