Send an email to SeniorPM@baronenv.com, providing a brief background on your issue and indicate you need a response ASAP.

How is a Scope of Work developed if specific EHS needs are not clearly known?

Our team members are proficient in brainstorming scenarios and finding solutions. Here's an example:
 
Imagine you have concerns about your hazardous waste program, but you're unsure of the exact deficiencies and where to begin. For this scenario, we may offer two potential solutions:

Option 1: Create a Hazardous Waste Management & Contingency Plan: This comprehensive plan ensures compliance with all applicable regulatory requirements associated with the proper management of hazardous and other regulated wastes. It addresses waste handling, storage, transportation, disposal, and emergency response. 

Option 2: Conduct an initial EHS Audit followed by corrective actions: An EHS Audit examines not only the waste management program but also other potential EHS deficiencies that may warrant high priority resolution. By conducting a comprehensive audit, we can identify and prioritize areas of improvement based on the risk of agency penalties, potential injuries, or other critical factors.

At no initial cost, we will work with you to gain clarity of the circumstances, and then develop a Scope of Work and the fixed fees for our professional services that correlate to clearly defined deliverables. Efficient EHS compliance is our specialty. We will always provide our recommended course of action if more than one option exists.
