Keeping workers comfortable

I'm wondering, there's got to be temporary, portable ways to keep workers alive in heat, or cold. We used to use portable infrared heater, during winter time. To keep houses warm, and also to keep the workers warm.
One winter time, furnace install. The Spirit whispered to me, to light up the infrared heater. I was comfortable, so I didn't. About a minute later, the boss came in from outdoors, freezing butt. I shoulda, oughta.
Got to be some way to do temporary cooling of attics, when you're working up there. Some water cooled radiator and fan, hooked to a garden hose?

It sounds like magic, but is commonly used on factory floors such as around iron smelters (remember when we had those in this country?) and compressed air:

Been a while, but I am some how remembering a cooling suit, using chest and back panels. Fluid line from some where, with a cooling unit. Wish I could remember more certainly about that.

Well, that is, if your AC is broken.

Interesting question. When I started to think about it, I started to think that maybe some kind of light weight vest with pockets for ice packs and/or something similar in a hat might work.
Then I did a Google search for "cooling vests" first and then "cooling hats". I found out that there is a lot out there already, although somewhat expensive. Here are just two of the links:
http://www.mscooling.com /
http://www.gemplers.com/shop/cooling-wear
My inclination would be to create my own type of adaptation for the very few times that I may encounter the kind of hot-working-area situations that you are describing. For an attic, a hard hat would be a good idea anyway, so maybe in that situation one could use a hard hat with an ice pack and/or neck ice pack with it.
