Who is OSHA and Why Do They Hate Me?


I'd like to know who the hell OSHA is and why they are forcing me to carry around poopy diapers in my $300 Coach bag. What is with this? There was a sign in the bathroom of the haircut place I go to that said "Due to OSHA's work place standards, please take all dirty diapers with you and do not dispose of them here." I've also seen this plastered all over the pediatricians office. I don't understand how they can take fecal tests there but they can't empty a trash can with a dirty diaper in it.

I do know who OSHA is and I understand the rule but come on... I really have to carry dirty diapers around with me? Can't they install those neon red bins that say Hazardous BioHazard Waste just for dirty diapers? As if kids weren't gross enough already. It's bad enough changing the diaper let alone walking around with TWO of them in my bag. Yes, my son felt the need to go twice during the 15 minutes we were away from the house! UGH

I would call OSHA and ask them personally. Perhaps theres just a poop misunderstanding somewhere?

OSHA is regulating the safety of the personnel emptying the trash. I would suspect that the locations are also protecting themselves from regulation that require fecal matter to be disposed of through a wastewater treatment plant, not in a landfill. Is it offensive to think about where your trash is going!?!
