Ice Skating Safety Facts and Tips

Ice skating is a fun winter activity, and also a great exercise! The National Safety Council offers these tips to help you and your family enjoy safe skating.

  • Wear skates that fit comfortably and provide enough ankle support to keep you on your feet.

  • Have the blades professionally sharpened at the beginning of each season.
     
  • Skate only on specially prepared skating areas where you are sure the ice is strong enough to withstand your weight.

  • Always check for cracks, holes and other debris.

  • Before setting out on your skating expedition, learn basic skating skills, such as how to stop and fall safely.

  • Wear warm clothing and rest when you become tired or cold.

  • Never skate alone.
