ID Lanyards are popularly used in many companies, hospitals, schools, and even prison facilities. These lanyards can also be worn on public gatherings like concerts, trade fairs and conventions.
Lanyards have come a long way. These were originally used as cords or ropes to secure objects in place. Typically worn around the neck, shoulder or wrist, their appearances and functions have evolved throughout the years. However, the basic functions of these lanyards remained the same and these include securing an object and placing it within arm’s-length of the user.
ID Lanyards became sought-after accessories because of the following:
1. Ease of Use
In the early years, IDs were pinned to the clothes using pins or snaps.
It presented a difficulty when the clothes are fragile or can easily snag and tear. So, most employees wear their identification cards pinned to the belt holder of their pants or even to their bags.
With the introduction of the lanyards, this kind of problem was adequately addressed. The lanyards can be easily slipped over the head even during the morning rush to the office. Credentials are now prominently displayed for everyone to see. Distinguishing actual company personnel from outsiders or visitors has also turned out to be very easy.
These lanyards are also a breeze to take off. There are no small pins to unfasten, which can be troublesome for arthritis sufferers or individuals with nerve problems.
When swiping IDs for identification purposes, these lanyards are long enough to reach a mounted card reader. Moreover, RFID cards that require no contact from a card reader can be effortlessly lifted from the chest area for a quick sweep in front of a sensor.
ID Lanyards make it convenient for company employees and visitors to comply with regulations regarding the proper wearing of ID cards at all times. The names of personnel can be readily seen by customers, as well as co-workers for easy dealing and interaction.
3.Security and Safety
ID Lanyards offer a sure way of boosting visibility in many business establishments. For security reasons, only bona-fide personnel should be given access to sensitive areas within the office. When these lanyards are worn, recognizing outsiders from authorized personnel becomes easier, even in large gatherings like concerts, trade shows and other corporate events.
