One rather large aquatic bird that has figured out the correct way of walking on ice is the penguin!  Here are a few tips to minimize your risk of a fall:

  • 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
  • Keep your knees slightly bent
  • Walk on snow or grass if possible

The next time you are walking on ice, just remember these tips and walk like a penguin!
