Bringing a Vibration White Finger (VWF) Claim
Vibration white finger (VWF) is a condition caused by exposure to vibration caused by vibratory power tools. Vibration White Finger (VWF) causes discomfort, tingling, numbness and whiteness in the fingers when exposed to the cold. The greater and more frequent the exposure, the more severe will be the symptoms of vibration white finger (VWF). There is little effective treatment once Vibration White Finger (VWF) has developed. Employers can be held responsible for the vibration white finger (VWF) related injuries caused as a result of such exposure from 1971 onwards which is the nominal date that all employers were or should have been aware of the dangers posed by vibratory power tools to their employees.
Tools likely to cause Vibration white Finger (VWF) include pneumatic drills and hammers (including percussive and rotary hammers), percussive tools (e.g. riveting, caulking, fettling and swaging), grinders (including pedestal and hand-held grinders), and chain saws.
