What is Vibration White Finger Syndrome?
Vibration White Finger syndrome (VWF) affects those who operate vibrating machinery over a long period of time, such as pneumatic drills, chainsaws and other power tools.
Commonly found in employees working in construction and factories, Vibration White Finger syndrome has a host of symptoms, including:
- Tingling in the fingers and arms
- Skin discolouration
- A loss of feeling in the hands and arms
- General pains and discomfort throughout the arms
Employers have a legal responsibility to ensure everyone on site is operating vibrating machinery in a safe way, getting plenty of breaks and wearing the right equipment. If they have failed to comply with safety regulations and you’re dealing with this painful and chronic condition as a result, hold them to account with our help.
