Picture yourself doing taxing work outside dressed in pants, long sleeves, steel toed boots, and heavy construction gloves with the heat index inside the triple digits.
When I began doing this type of work in the Summer of 2017, I was completely vomiting, experiencing chronic heat exhaustion, migraines, and beyond.
In the Springtime of 2018 I was working on a section of a major international airport, however the airport required their companies to set up cooling tents or to supply temporary structures for their workers… At this time, my body was conditioned to withstand excessive heat for long periods of time, but when I felt the ice-cold fan inside the tent I was so relieved. This was the heavenly 30 minutes I looked forward to each and every day. This is something very useful to anybody who has an outdoor, work intensive task. Those who do backbreaking work like shoveling, carrying bricks, tree removal, demolition clean up, paver laying, roofing, or rod busting should have cooling stations that are mandated. I truly believe that anybody who has performed work in dire climate zones would agree with me on this particular point. This would create more tasks for HVAC service professionals and open the door for people to start-up their own local HVAC device service. Construction sites are basically everywhere and they are not going away. If every one of us had insulated AC tents for every long-term project, every one of us would be opening a mini industry! Just by setting up tents, air conditioning, and fans, people would be able to start their own corporation with very little money. Construction workers could cool down when they need a break as well… Somebody could easily invent their own portable smart AC device with universal controls for a boss to cut off the a/c at each of their respective sites when the break is over.
