    Quarrying accidents and injury experts in Rockbeare

    In the UK, quarrying is still a dangerous industry for workers, with over 3,250 being injured since 2002 according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). 27 of those injuries were fatal. The main causes of injuries, fatalities and ill-health are:

    • Manual handling and musculoskeletal injuries;
    • Falls from heights;
    • Transport;
    • Slips and trips (which can happen anywhere, of course);
    • Hand-arm vibration (HAV);
    • Asthma;
    • Noise;
    • Silica; and
    • Explosives.

    There are some early warning signs that you have HAV, which you might have if you work with handheld or hand-guided power tools. You may experience tingling or numbness in the fingers, which could cause you to lose sleep. You may not be able to feel things with your fingers, and you may lose strength in your hands to the extent that you can’t pick up or hold heavy objects. When it is cold or wet, you may experience the symptoms of vibration white finger, which are white fingertips which then turn red and painful. Continuing to use high-powered hand tools will exacerbate the condition, and you may not be able to pick up small items such as nails and screws, and the numbness in your hands may become permanent.
