Subject: onsite vs on site
When used as a noun, which is correct - Onsite or On Site? For example, "The
staff is on site." Or "The staff is onsite." I have seen it both ways and
would like to know if one is more correct than the other and why. I can find
no particular rule other than if it is used as an adjective or adverb.
