Are you suffering from VWF?
Vibration White Finger syndrome (VWF) is a condition commonly affecting those that have worked in industrial and commercial settings.
Caused by vibration machinery, VWF occurs when the operator is using this sort of machinery or tools (such as pneumatic drills) without the correct safety gear, like ant-vibration gloves, or without taking frequent breaks. The result is the onset of this painful condition, which is characterised by tingling in the arm, hands and fingers, as well as discolouration, loss of feeling, and in extreme cases, loss of dexterity altogether.
Your employer is responsible for providing you with the correct training to handle vibrating equipment, as well as the gear needed to do so safely. If they have failed to do this or displayed any other form of negligence that you believe has contributed to your developing this syndrome, contact Accident Advice Helpline right away.
