Don’t fall on ice!

You don’t see penguins slip & fall on ice.

Know why?

  • They walk flat footed
  • They take short steps
  • They walk with their arms at their sides (not in their pockets)
  • They concentrate on maintaining balance

Avoid slips, sprains and strains by watching out for snow-covered/black ice and uneven surfaces, checking your tread, practicing defensive walking and also walking like a penguin!
