    This is why lanyards have breakaways...

    Exactly, I thought that they had to have breakaways these days to stop students trying to strangle members of staff / other students with them?

    So you want to needlessly put yourself in harmsway with tech equipment by having something dangling off your neck whilst leaning over the machinery and if something goes wrong hope the brake-away will come apart when your face is about to pulled into a machine...

    Yes, I have tried several, Even in most places your still forbidden to wear them in industrial settings [Tech Classrooms] because they present a undue danger to the wearer

    Never had that said to us, and this is the land of health and safety here... There is no undue danger. They have a break away of a few lbs of force. ie. every one I have ever seen comes apart with barely a tug.
