Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome Compensation Claim (HAVS)

If you work with hand-held or hand-guided power tools for more than a few hours each day, you risk damaging the nerves, blood vessels and joints in your hands, wrists and arms.  

Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) is caused by exposure to vibrating work equipment, and damage to your hand, wrist or arm is usually permanent. The Vibration at Work Regulations 2005 were introduced to protect workers from vibration at work, and the risk of suffering HAVS, but it still occurs, and you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation if it happens to you.

Early signs and symptoms of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)

  • Tingling and numbness in the fingers
  • A loss of feeling in your fingers
  • A loss of strength in your hands
  • In cold and wet weather, the tips of your fingers turn white, then red, and become painful

If you experience these symptoms and continue using vibrating tools, symptoms will worsen, and can include:

  • permanent numbness in your hands
  • difficulty picking up small objects
  • Vibration White Finger could occur more frequently and affect more fingers

What to do next?

If you are suffering Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS) symptoms, you should consider making a claim for compensation. We understand you might have concerns about making a claim against your employer, but it is their legal duty to protect you at work, and provide suitable equipment and Health and Safety training. They will have insurance in place to pay your compensation if your claim is successful.
