Vibration white finger, what is it?
Vibration white finger – or hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), as it is now known – is an example of an industrial disease. This means it’s a condition that is related to someone’s work – indeed, caused by the work that they carry out, or carried out in the past.
The symptoms of hand-arm vibration are:
- Coldness, tingling or numbness in the fingers
- Pain in the fingers, hand and arm
- Discolouration of the skin on the fingers
What causes these symptoms is nerve and blood vessel damage, and that’s because of repeated use of vibrating power tools over a long period.
How to prevent vibration white finger
If you don’t have this condition and you want to guard against it, but you work with power tools, there are steps that you can take to prevent it – and your employer should make sure that you do. These include:
- Taking breaks from using the equipment
- Using the correct tool for the job
- Being trained in the use of the equipment
- Wearing protective gloves
- Having the equipment correctly maintained
