Vibration White Finger
Vibration White Finger (VWF)
or Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) as it is sometimes known, is a debilitating condition brought on by the continuous use of vibrating machinery. A claim for compensation
can be made if you have been exposed to vibration over a sustained period of time and your lifestyle has had to change as a result.
A successful claim
will depend on a number of factors. Being able to prove that the injury was due to your employer being negligent in your use of machinery, that the claim is being made, usually, within 3 years of the diagnosis being made and, of course, that the injury was caused by the use of machinery in the first place. An examination by a GP or at a hospital may be required.
What are the Symptoms of Vibration White Finger?
The symptoms of vibration white finger can include numbness or tingling of the fingers, a cold feeling in the hands and fingers and a white colouring to the fingers. This can result in a loss of dexterity and pain in the fingers, hands and arms. As a result everyday tasks such as fastening buttons, tying a shoelace, using a telephone and so on can be much more difficult.
