Dry room troubles

Where I work, we have several departments and the one where I work is quite interesting. We make parts for medical equipment and some of these are very sensitive to temperature and moisture levels.  I work in what is called a dry room and this means basically that all moisture has been removed by powerful dehumidifiers. It also means that the room always feels cold. There are several issues when you work in a environment like this, the first being that I go through gallons of lotion a year because my skin is often very dry. Because many of the components are made of rubber, they want to make sure that there is no moisture in the room that would cause them to stick together. It is very important that these items remain in the same dry state throughout the entire process, even when they are sealed to be shipped out.  I never knew moisture and temperature could have such an impact on medical devices, but now I know how it can affect things that are crucial in surgeries for people. If the components are not made and stored in the proper settings, they may not be safe to use in lifesaving procedures. Many of the parts we make are for pacemakers! I would never want to be responsible for having any part of such a critical item be faulty, so I will just put up with the cold dry air for the greater good. I may, at one point, ask to transfer to a different department that does not require me to work in the dry room though.
