Yes, the way to fasten your neck strap should be quite specific indeed! I have therefore revised all of my camera's straps recently, following Olympus' indications carefully. As a result, I have noticed a huge difference in stability; my several straps have not even slipped 1/10 inch left or right or anyhow since then, with no weight whatsoever jeopardizing the integrity of those weak plastic buckles (stabilizers):
