Injuries from Vibrating Tools

I recently came across a news story relating to a man that won a compensation claim because of a personal injury caused from using vibrating tools. The use of vibrating tools such as drills and other equipment can result in an injury known as carpal tunnel syndrome or vibration white finger. The condition can take years to fully develop and leads to numbness in the hands which causes a decrease in your dexterity.

Employers should make sure their employees are aware of the dangers these tools can cause and make sure that they are all using the right protective equipment to ensure their safety.
