Winter Safety – Slips & Falls Prevention

By | blog

Winter Safety – Slips & Falls Prevention

Over one million Americans are injured as a result of slip and fall injuries every year. Slip and fall injury rates increase significantly as temperatures decline. Approximately 50% of those who are injured in slip and fall accidents were walking on level ground when they slipped. Slips, trips, and falls are a leading cause of accidental deaths, second only to motor vehicles.*

When walking in a winter wonderland, we can reduce injuries by planning ahead, using caution while walking, and learning how to fall properly.

Plan ahead & stay focused

  • Look where you are walking
  • Follow designated walkways and avoid taking shortcuts across snow and ice
  • Use handrails when climbing or descending stairs
  • Keep your hands free by using a backpack to carry your items
  • Wear proper footwear – boots that provide good traction and ankle support

Walk like a penguin

  • Point your feet out slightly
  • Bend your knees and walk flat-footed
  • Extend your arms out to your side to help maintain balance
  • Take short steps and shuffle your feet, waddling like a penguin, for stability

Fall Properly

  • Protect your head – tuck your chin to your chest
  • Avoid putting your arms out to break the fall – keep your limbs loose and pull them in toward your body to avoid a broken arm or wrist
  • Turn or roll into the fall

Our team MSD, Inc. is honored to be a supporter and service provider of the Five Rivers Metro Parks – Riverscape Ice Rink, located in downtown Dayton on 237 E. Monument Ave. Dayton, OH 45402. This venue has so much to offer from its 70 foot by 150 foot ice rink, sheltered underneath a pavilion, to its amazing views of the Great Miami River and the City of Dayton Skyline. 


This rink has something for everyone: beginners’ lessons, open skating, broomball and curling, not to mention hot chocolate and music.
