novastris Insurance is urging high-risk workers and self-employed professionals to make taking out personal accident insurance their New Year’s resolution.

After the joy of the festive period the bills usually start rolling in prompting many to consider how they might be able to manage financially if they were not able to earn through accident or sickness. 

This is particularly crucial for those in high-risk jobs and in self-employment which is why innovative new insurance provider novastris ( is making workers aware of the consequences of not having adequate personal accident cover.

With the cold snap and severe weather warnings set to continue novastris advises that purchasing a personal accident insurance policy is one New Year’s resolution that is worth keeping.

novastris director Steve Nickerson said: "We've already seen significant snowfall over the last few days with more forecast for the coming week. Something as simple as a slip on an icy pavement could take a person out of work for a long period.

"A broken ankle could be a costly injury for someone who depends on being active or being able to drive for work potentially crippling their finances.

"At this time of year, people are making their New Year resolutions and we believe investing in good accident cover provides essential protection for workers from every day, as well as professional risks.

"Available online, novastris offers automatic cover for many higher risk trades and professions, providing people with the confidence that they and their family are financially protected should the worst happen."

novastris’s tailored personal accident insurance includes the provision of those working in higher risk trades and professions such as builders and tradesman insurance ( and freelancers insurance ( and hair and beauty insurance ( for self-employed professionals.

  • Accidental death insurance and temporary total disablement cover as standard
