    What is Vibration White Finger?

    • VWF is commonly known as dead finger and professionally referred to as Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)
    • It is an industrial injury usually triggered by the continuous use of hand held vibrating machinery.
    • It is widely accepted that VWF is caused by vibrations from machinery and power tools  and that the blood vessels and nerve endings in the operator’s fingers are damaged by continuous usage.

    Typically it affects workers who have used the following kinds of equipment:

    • Chainsaws, Hand-Held Saws, Rotating Saws
    • Compressed Air Tools
    • Concrete Breakers
    • Drills, Hammer Drills, Pneumatic Drills
    • Grinders
    • Percussive Hand Guided Power Tools
    • Road Breakers
    • Sanders

    What are the symptoms of Vibration White Finger?

    Common symptoms of vibration white finger syndrome include:

    • Tingling or numbness in the fingers
    • Cold sensation or discolouration of the skin
    • General aches and pains in arms, hands and fingers

    When the fingers fine blood vessels go into spasm they can cause a change in the way the fingers feel and their appearance. Spasms can occur either spontaneously or due to a change in temperature. Fingers can go pale, then blue-ish, before going a dull red, usually when the circulation begins to return.

    As well as being painful, the fingers may tingle or burn. This sensation can last for just a few minutes or last for several hours depending upon the severity of the condition. Sufferers of vibration white finger can find that their ability to hold or grip items is severely hampered and reduced.
