Custom Lanyard Printing Singapore

Aug 30

Consider breakaway lanyards when chosing your promotional lanyards  

Many companies and institutions use custom lanyard printing in Singapore as an easy method for students and employees to show their secure ID badges and card. They're practical, easy to find and are available in a range of styles and colors. But , they can be hazardous.

When is a Lanyard Dangerous?

If you consider the scenarios where branded lanyards could be a danger in, it is clear that they could pose a risk to people who work near huge machinery and heavy equipment. Any part of the production line of your manufacturing facility that the lanyard might become involved with could result in injuries or injury for your workers.

The things that might not seem so apparent are the dangers inherent for those who work with children as well as for the children under their care. The lanyard can be wrapped around the neck of a child easily, and cause harm. Young children who have to wear IDs for their students on lanyards can easily catch it while running or playing in the playground, or at other locations.

Other scenarios where the use of lanyards could be risky include nursing homes, hospitals or psychiatric wards as well as prisons. Any workplace where there is a risk of employees or other workers being aggressive, it is best to reconsider the use of traditional lanyards. A lanyard tied worn around your neck during such situations could become an extremely dangerous object when used by those with the wrong motives.

Breakaway Lanyards are the Answer
