Of all the innocuous parts of a uniform, the name tag, badge, or lanyard might be at the top of the list.

However, there is quality evident even in these unassuming components of employee vestiture. While you might not have known it, lanyards and name tags are designed to evince a very particular level of quality and functionality – such as the following.

Anti-Twist Design
Have you ever spoken to someone (who was wearing a lanyard) in a professional setting, and just couldn’t help but notice that their lanyard was laying the wrong way on their uniform?

It’s a fairly common occurrence. For whatever reason, some lanyards just want to lay the wrong way, obscuring names, pictures, and titles. Needless to say, it is an unprofessional look and not particularly positive with respect to the customer experience.

Lanyards that lay flat (and face the right direction) will go the extra yard to make a staff member look more put-together and more professional overall.

Easy-Breakaway Configuration
In some industries, lanyards can serve as a serious occupational hazard. Consider heavy equipment operators and others in automated industries.

Their lanyards can be trapped in moving parts and may pose a serious risk to those that work in these settings.

Similarly, teachers, nurses, doctors, and others that may work with patients exhibiting behavioral aggression or unpredictability can face the same risks.

Lanyards that don’t break away easily can offer a serious risk of choking or worse. Conversely, those that do will fall away when a certain amount of pressure is applied, making them categorically much safer.

Anti-Microbial Material
One more thing you may never have thought of – until you actually wore a lanyard for work – is that lanyards, which are made of woven materials, can trap and foment the growth of microbes.

This, like lanyards that do not break away when pressure is applied, can be a serious threat to public health and safety.

This is especially important for those that work with the young, old and immunocompromised, which includes school and daycare staff, those in elder care, and all who work in healthcare.

Moreover, those in the food service industry face the same challenges, making anti-microbial lanyards preferable.

However, in this current era of heightened awareness and disinfection protocols, anti-microbial textiles are all the more valuable – not just lanyards.
