If you have developed a vibration syndrome such as Vibration White Fingers or Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) due to your work, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim.
Excessive use of vibrating machinery and tools such as chainsaws, pneumatic drills, grinders, sanders, breakers etc. is known to cause neurological and vascular symptoms.
Repeated pressure on the nerves and arteries of the hands can affect the nerves, muscles, joints and blood vessels and can lead to symptoms such as:
- Tingling, numbness or cold sensations in the fingers
- Whitening of the fingers
- Lessening of dexterity
- Aches and pains in hands and lower arms
- Development of carpal tunnel syndrome
