When in use, make sure that they are being handled correctly and causing no physical harm. If bags are used for props – i.e. body bags then they will not be done up fully or tight to prevent suffocation.

If someone does get trapped or starts to suffocate, take the bag off immediately/undo it and make sure they rest and have some water to calm down and get their breath back.
