Lanyard Safety and Driving for Work

Drivers are being warned not to wear their lanyards when driving or travelling in cars because of the risk of injury if an airbag goes off.

It comes after an NHS worker, who crashed while driving home, suffered a perforated bowel from keys attached to her lanyard. Another driver suffered a collapsed lung after the lanyard and pass was pushed into their chest.

Ensure that you update your driving for work policy and raise awareness to staff of the potential risk of injury.
