Vibration white finger is damage to the wrist or hand. It’s caused by using vibrating machinery like pneumatic drills and it’s common in certain types of environments, particularly construction and steelwork.
While it may be common, that’s not to say that it is inevitable. Your employer has a legal duty to protect you from being injured at work, and if they haven’t done this, you may have the beginnings of a personal injury claim.
