The best way to stay safe from icy falls this winter is to… walk like a penguin. That’s right! Follow these 7 ways to stay upright and prevent yourself from falling:

  • Position center of gravity directly over feet
  • Toes pointed slightly outward
  • Knees relaxed
  • Bend forward slightly
  • Keep hands free and outside of pockets
  • Go slowly
  • Take short steps
