What is Vibration White Finger and Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome?
Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), also known as a Vibration White Finger (VWF), is a form of Raynaud’s syndrome that causes impaired blood circulation, damage to nerve supply and muscoskeletal damage. It is a recognised industrial disease and is most commonly found in workers using vibratory tools.
What causes HAV and VWF?
HAVS and VWF are industrial injuries found in workers exposed to vibratory, rotating or percussive hand guided power tools. Exposure to excessive vibration causes damage to the nerves, blood vessels and muscles of the hands, and can cause permanent damage, discomfort and impaired use of sufferer’s hands.
What are the symptoms of HAV and VWF?
Symptoms of HAV and VWF include; tingling and numbness in the fingers, loss or change of colour in the fingers, severe loss of grip and reduced dexterity. Symptoms of these conditions are often significantly worse in cold weather.
