State of Minnesota advises “Be a penguin”

While walking into the Minnesota Judicial Center today, I noticed a small flyer by the door:

The granite up there is pretty slippery.

The Slip Trip and Fall Prevention Campaign is coming soon to a state government building near you.

According to the The Department of Administration Risk Management Division web site:

Slip, Trip, Falls are the second leading cause of work place injuries to state employees. While there are many causes of slip, trip, falls, our winter weather is a contributor and there is much we can do to minimize our risk of a fall and injury.

So remember, “arms extended to the side

and feet pointed slightly outward”

or you could wind up like this:
