GBRIA, as a service to its members, facilitates a safety & health audit on contractor companies utilizing a 3rd party auditing firm. These audits serve to assist member companies with their requirement to evaluate contractor’s safety and health programs under the OSHA 1910.119 (h) regulations. The audit holds reciprocity with Houston Business Roundtable and is valid for three (3) years. The program is aimed to reduce the cost for member companies and reduce repetitive audits for contractor companies. GBRIA has 200+ audits on file. Please contact Brandon Smith, to learn more about the audit program and gain access to completed audits.
