Vibration white finger can lead to constant pain, and permanent debilitating symptoms such as loss of circulation in hands, difficulties in cold weather, numbness and loss of grip strength.

Causes

Vibration white finger mainly occurs in the workplace particularly in construction jobs, when completing excessive tasks and using tools that vibrate without sufficient breaks or rotation of staff.

It may also occur when workers are not trained to use equipment properly or when the tool is faulty (i.e. doesn’t have a handle).

Tools which may cause such symptoms if used for prolonged periods of time are:

  • jackhammers
  • duty breakers
  • pneumatic tools
  • concrete breakers and pokers
  • sanders, grinders and disc cutters
  • hammer drills
  • chipping hammers
