    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
