Quote – Rep. Charlie Norwood (R-GA) in an op-ed for The Hill.

In 1991, dentists across America discovered that OSHA had ‘outlawed the tooth fairy.’ In a fit of regulatory zeal to combat the spread of AIDS and other communicable diseases through blood-borne pathogens, the rule-writers at OSHA had determined to make it a violation to allow any item that had been in contact with bodily fluids to leave a medical facility except in a biohazards container.

“It's ridiculous for OSHA to treat small businesses like large ones.” The Hill.
