Does OSHA prohibit the use of cuspidors? 

While OSHA does not prohibit the use of cuspidors, they do pose infection control concerns. Patient materials are continually expelled into the basin, so cuspidors are continually contaminated. For this reason, many practices have opted to eliminate them, instead using high-volume evacuation (HVE, "suction”) to clear away oral fluids.
