Vibration White Finger Claims | HAVS
Hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) is an industrial condition (occupational illness), known for many years as “vibration white finger”. The name of the illness was changed due to additional symptoms.
This condition affects hands, fingers, wrists and arms and it’s caused by an intense and repeated use of vibrating machinery or tools. Patients diagnosed with HAVS usually work in:
- Auto repair shops
- Construction sites
- Dental care
- Foot care
- Public utilities (e.g. electricity, water, gas, telecommunications).
