A tragic accident occurred when a seven year old child was struck in the eye with a metal barb tip on an elastic lanyard which released from a plastic name badge worn around the child’s neck. The safety hierarchy would suggest that attempting to eliminate the elastic lanyard impact danger through design is the first priority. Non-elastic lanyards and safety breakaway lanyards are explored as design alternatives for accident prevention.
