The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will consider new requirements for massage establishments in an effort to help prevent human trafficking.

The proposed ordinance scheduled to be heard Jan. 28 would require the Department of Public Health to inspect all massage businesses in unincorporated areas of the county.

The businesses would be required to have a health permit and a business license.

There would also be requirements for massage tables and sanitation of linens, limits on advertising of services and posting of notices regarding slavery and human trafficking.

If the law is adopted, public health inspections could begin early this year in unincorporated areas. Inspections in incorporated cities would be dependent upon the city contracting with the county for the service.
