With an occupational healthcare partner like Axiom Medical, maritime employers can provide their employees a single-source healthcare approach with medical treatment, maritime industry case management, and occupational health management with mariner repatriation.
Managing occupational safety in the Maritime Industry is quite challenging because of its critical nature and operational requirements. Because ships spend most of the time in ports or at sea, conducting workplace safety measures and regulatory surveillance becomes exceptionally challenging. Seafaring is an arduous occupation that exposes workers to several occupational health hazards.
The jobs of seafarers are also immensely challenging given the nature of their highly demanding job duties. With an occupational healthcare partner like Axiom Medical, maritime employers can provide their employees a single-source healthcare approach with medical treatment, maritime industry case management, and occupational health management with mariner repatriation.

The maritime industry operations include construction, repair, and scrapping of vessels to heavy load lifting and shipping.

They Said It!
I believe with confidence that we are reaching all of our expected goals by bringing Axiom on as an outsourced case management solution.
Axiom has helped us closely monitor the injured employee’s progress through the medical treatment process. Early treatment has kept our employees at work when in the past they would have likely taken time off or been placed off by a physician.
I recommend Axiom because their Nurse Case Management Team is their biggest asset. They are accessible, give great reports and are responsive to our needs.
