Compensation for Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) from Using Vibratory Tools

Compensation For Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) From Using Vibratory Tools

Our client was employed making pine furniture and doors and used vibratory tools to cut and sand the same.

He noticed tingling in the tips of his fingers and that the tips went white when they were cold. He mentioned his problems to his doctor who suggested he may suffer from Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) due to his employment using vibratory tools.

The case was resolved out of Court shortly before the trial.

Lee Carnall says "I am pleased that my client has been compensated for his disability. It shows that employers are still ignoring health and safety advice in continuing to expose their employees to excessive levels of vibration, which caused my client's hand arm vibration syndrome".
