This condition affects a number of workers across the UK, and has been recognised as a work-related injury since 1976.

When it comes to making a claim, entrust the experts at Accident Advice Helpline. We’ve assisted many people with personal injury claims over the past fourteen years, and currently help award over £30 million a year in damages. With our help, you too could be the recipient of a substantial payout.
What is VWF (Vibration White Finger)?
Vibration white finger, also known as hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), is a condition caused by the perpetual use of vibration machinery and power tools.
For example, a pneumatic drill can cause this syndrome to develop in the arms of the operator if they are not equipped with the right safety gear and given frequent breaks. Those suffering from VWF will often report pins and needles in the arms, hands and fingers, as well as skin discolouration, loss of feeling and general discomfort.
Your employer is liable to ensure that if you are using vibrating tools at work that you receive ample breaks, training as to how to use the power tools safely, and to provide you with anti-vibration gloves. If they fail to do this and you’ve found yourself developing these symptoms, seek legal advice right away.
