Vibration white finger injury caused through breach of regulations

A breach of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1992 and 1998 resulted in our client developing the industrial disease, vibration white finger (VWF), or HAVS (Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome).

Contrary to these regulations, our client had not been given any warnings about the possible risks to workers using vibrating tools. Neither had our client’s employer provided a safe system of working to minimise his use of these tools, a further breach of the regulations.

Vibration white finger compensation for breaches of regulations

Our client was diagnosed with vibration white finger in 2005, although he had unknowingly been suffering from mild symptoms of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome for several years prior to that. He asked for our personal injury compensation claim advice regarding a possible claim for VWF compensation against his employer, for whom he had worked since leaving school some 20 or more years before the onset of his industrial disease.
