Stay ahead of the frost: Is your organisation equipped for winter?

Posted by Aimee Wagstaff on Mar 26, 2024

We believe you can never be too prepared for the winter season ahead, especially for the hazards that may arise with it. Frosty roads and snow buildup not only pose hazards to daily travel when approached carelessly but also elevate the potential for workplace accidents.

Is winter driving more dangerous?

To put it bluntly, yes. 

In a study involving 2,000 UK motorists, Admiral found that nearly a quarter (23%) have experienced a car accident while driving in severe winter conditions, such as snow, black ice, fog, floodwater, thunderstorms, heavy rain, and high winds.

Admiral's data indicates that the winter months see the highest occurrence of severe motor incidents, with February leading at 12%, followed closely by January and December at 11%, and November at 10%.

Notably, one in ten (10%) drivers reported being in accidents caused by black ice. With temperatures dropping below zero during winter, Admiral cautions drivers about the increased risk of black ice formation on roads, posing significant danger to motorists.
