    They do say to remove the filter when no one is to be standing in front of the projector :P

    Re: Whiteboard projector safety fears

    This was brought up this morning in our staff meeting by a member of staff. I told them that we use lower brightness projectors as per guidelines and that all projectors have been inspected by our health and safety officer so if they want to see the report they are welcome to it.

    To be honest i really feel this is another thing along the lines of WI-FI... the bbc have nothing else to report on so they find random things like this to report. Has anyone come across a blind teacher yet because they've been using an IWB?

    And one more thing... lol... if the projector is so low that your looking at it as your talking to the kids then it's been fitted wrongly.

    Not blind, but one of our staff did have an eye complaint which could have been attributable to her projector - the problem started shortly after she got it and cleared when we adjusted her projector. She can't 100% prove it was the projector, but nor can we 100% disprove this. Better safe than sorry, I say.
