Common examples of employment include working on building sites, in warehouses, in shops or in an office. No matter where you work, employers have to protect your health and safety while you are at work. However, some jobs are more dangerous than others.
Vibration white finger
There are rules and regulations relating to the use of vibrating tools, which your employer should ensure are followed to avoid industrial conditions developing. One of the main ones caused by these tools is vibration white finger, also known as dead finger or hand-arm vibration syndrome.
If your boss does not meet with the rules, you may suffer this incurable condition. There are many tools which can cause this condition including chainsaws, pneumatic drills, grinders and impact wrenches.
You would be able to make a personal injury claim if you use any of these tools on a regular basis, and your employer has not provided you with regular breaks or anti-vibration equipment.
