Vibration White Finger (VWF) is a disease caused by using vibrating hand tools and machines for a prolonged period of time. This disease is also commonly known as Hand-arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS). This industrial disease affects thousands of workers across the world. Blood circulation is very badly impacted by vibration white finger disease. It also affects the blood vessels, nerves, muscles as well as hand, wrist, and arm joints. The most common tools that may result in Vibrating White fingers may include concrete vibrators, compactors, pneumatic drills, lawnmowers, jackhammers, sanders, hedge trimmers, and chain saws.
Construction workers are at the most risk of having Vibration White Finger as they have to work long hours and have prolonged exposure to vibrations with lesser breaks.
A tight grip is required while working with vibrating power tools. Having a tight grip on the vibrating tools for an extended period of time can affect blood circulation. Using vibrating tools can also cause another kind of injuries to the hand.
If using power tools is an integral part of your job, your employer should be taking preventative measures to ensure VWF doesn’t happen to you. Your employer should ensure the comfort and safety of each employee. Employers should allow frequent breaks to such employees, worker shift rotation, and ensure they are kept warm and dry. The employers should also work on reducing the vibration reduction effect.
