LOS ANGELES—California workplace safety officials have fined Larry Flynt's Hustler Video and another porn producer for not using condoms on set to protect sex performers from exposure to disease.

The Division of Occupational Safety and Health citation obtained Wednesday says Hustler Video faces $14,175 in fines for three violations, including failure to provide condoms or other protective equipment. Forsaken Pictures faces $12,150 in fines.

Cal/OSHA spokeswoman Erika Monterroza says the state has a responsibility to protect all its workers, even in difficult to track industries such as pornography.

Hustler's citation stems from a Sept. 14 inspection of a jobs site in response to a complaint from the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.

A telephone message left at Hustler was not immediately returned. Contact information for Forsaken could not be immediately located.
