This is one of the most common conditions, Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) is caused by working with vibrating tools. The condition can cause numbness and/or tingling in the hands, plus aching of the wrist and arm muscles. If you are suffering or have suffered from HAVS, Farnworth Rose Solicitors can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
Common symptoms of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome
HAVS is often referred to as ´white finger´ although white fingers are only one of a several symptoms. Sufferers usually recover when they stop working with vibrating tools, but the damage may already have been done. The condition can be permanent, making it difficult to handle small items and affecting sensitivity in the fingers and hands. This can make even small jobs difficult.
Causes of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome
Work activities which are likely to include handling vibrating machinery include:-
1. Grinding, including hand-held grinders.
2. Pneumatic drills and hammers.
3. Chain saws and garden machinery.
4. Percussive tools for fettling, riveting and swaging.
Employers should ensure workers only use certain tools for a limited amount of time. Regular medical check-ups can detect the condition of HAVS early on.
