Vibration White Finger (VWF) syndrome is the effect of exposure to excessive vibration on your hands and fingers. Symptoms of vibration white finger include a persons fingers going white to certain points such as finger pad, first or second knuckle and numbness and tingling of hands and fingers. Sometimes you may suffer from finger whiteness without the numbness and tingling and sometimes you may suffer from numbness and tingling without finger whiteness.
Risk of negligence
The condition can affect your grip and ability to perform simple tasks such as tying of shoelaces or doing up buttons. This loss of function can have a devastating effect on your job and personal life, which is why making a Vibration White Finger claim can make a huge difference to the quality of sufferers’ lives.
Often the greater the exposure to vibration the worse your symptoms will be, which has a direct impact when making a Vibration White Finger claim. Usually by the time your employer places you on restrictions of vibration it is too late. The vibration can come from hand held or operated tools such as jackhammers, stilh saws, angle and pencil grinders, fettlers, chainsaws, lathes and many more besides.
