Badge lanyards should have a breakaway safety device that causes the lanyard to break when a small force is applied. This safety feature prevents personnel from being pulled into or dragged by moving equipment that catches the lanyard. Some badge lanyards have a slide that can be used to adjust the length of the lanyard. However, if the wearer places the slide in the wrong location relative to the breakaway, the slide can effectively lock out the breakaway and put the wearer at risk of injury or worse. A 60 pound force is enough to pull a surprised wearer into whatever equipment is pulling on the lanyard. It is also enough to cause injury to the wearers neck and/or back if the wearer attempts to resist the force pulling on the lanyard.
