Frequently Asked Questions

LONG TERM SUPPORT

Why is Baron's EHS Long Term Support service better than having internal EHS staff on site?

There are several reasons why this service is the smart choice:

  1. Our team-based service eliminates reliance on any one person on site. 

  2. Baron’s service is sustainable. It provides consistent support, with a full EHS skill set, and is not impacted by employee turnover.

  3. There is a false perception that internal EHS staff is necessary for urgent needs. This misconception is based on a dated staffing model. Baron ensures continuous coverage, EHS compliance, and utilizes a team-based system to react to urgent needs.

  4. Baron’s EHS Long Term Support is less expensive than onsite staff.
