The partnership between Tyson and Axiom Medical was announced in a press release Friday.
The new partnership means “Axiom will help case manage affected team members and enhance communications with those impacted individuals and their families,” according to the release.
Some of the specific offerings from Axiom include health support, telephone access to medical professionals 24/7 and education about how to slow the spread of illness at work.
“Our top priority is the health and safety of our team members, their loved ones and our communities,” Tom Brower, Tyson’s senior vice president of health and safety, said in a statement.
“The additional services Axiom provides will help to ensure our team members receive appropriate medical attention when they need it and can return to work safely,” Brower added.
According to the release, Tyson launched its own coronavirus task force in January, which helped implement various measures, including providing face masks to employees, taking employees’ temperatures before every shift and adhering to social distancing guidelines.
Tyson also offers a “thank you” bonus for front-line workers and has doubled that bonus, according to the press release.
