Step down. Not out.

Slip-and-fall injuries in parking lots are very common, can be severe, and are a risk for many types of businesses. Use the “step down, not out” method to reduce the chance of slipping. 

From the curb: Shorten your steps. Step flat-footed off the curb. Don’t land heel first.

From the car: Swing both legs out. Place feet on the ground. Hold door frame or steering wheel for support.
