    never heard of any scaffs with white finger due to scaffolding I believe that with the use of impact wrenches there may well be some in the future
    As for the Vikings disease is that not more of a genetic condition,which is widely found in people of Scandinavian origin.

    I have got the Vikings disease. Hard fatty lumps in the palm of my hand.I actually thought it was caused by w*****g not scaffolding. Thanks for the heads up I am now contacting my lawyer to put in a claim.

    never heard of viking hand ,
    white finger comes only 2 things hand vibration and having a dip in someone elses wrap

    i cant ever see IW causing a problem with vibration as you dont spend enough time on them constantly , like say a jack hammer .

    deafnesson the other hand
    may well become a problem with IW in the future

    They reckon the next big claim is gonnae be HPE (handrail polishers elbow) The symptoms ate a a 2" groove which can stretch from the palms through the wrist right up the forearm and having some real damage on the elbows. Its also been called the standby mans disease.
    Although not it can clear up on Shutdowns and OffShore sectors it can become more troublesome and some times even septic a bit like bedsores.
    Its almost like a drug as the symptoms also cause the poor sole to scream and call for a meeting as he is being taken away from the area for his own good
