Preventing Cold-Related Illness #34

Working in cold, wet, or windy conditions can be hazardous for performers and crew members, potentially leading to cold-related illness that can result in permanent tissue damage or even death. Risks may increase with film-related practices such as working near manufactured wind or rain towers, wearing costumes that are inappropriate for the conditions, or dealing with emergency situations such as falling into water.
