How To Walk On Ice

With the wicked weather, many are already slipping on the ice this winter; here are a few tips to help minimize your risk of falling on the ice.  Remember to walk like a Penguin (even add the Bangles tune to it if need be).

  • Keep your weight forward and on your front foot
  • Keep your arms out by your side to help you balance
  • Walk flat-footed and take short shuffling steps
  • Wear footwear that provides traction
  • Step down, not out from curbs
  • Keeps your knees slightly bent
  • Walk on snow or grass if possible
