Prevention of Accidents Involving Falling while Commuting or Going Out due to Snowfall

February 2, 2010

From an email that was sent round the office today, due to the recent snowfall in Tokyo:

■ How to walk safely
• Walk with smaller strides than usual
• Bend your knees a little and lean forward slightly as you walk
• Lower your center of gravity and walk with the entire surface of your shoes in contact with the ground
• Take care when starting to walk or changing speed because falls often occur at such times
