JSAS Support for Construction Compliance Order
Effective immediately, San Francisco Bay Area Counties* and the City of Berkeley will require JSAS support for the Construction Compliance Order. The order states, to start or continue with large construction projects, the site must comply with all social distancing and construction project safety protocols. In Appendices A and B-2, the order references Social Distancing and Large Construction Project Safety Protocol, section 2.J. Furthermore, the order requires that a Third-Party Jobsite Safety Accountability Supervisor (JSAS) be assigned to a jobsite to verify compliance with protocols by visual inspection and random worker interviews. Additionally, all JSAS personnel must be OSHA 30-hour certified and hold a current first aid certificate.

For instance, some examples include gloves, goggles, face shields, and face coverings. Additionally, Site Specific Health and Safety Plans will need to include:
