Health and safety guidance
It is important to be aware of the health and safety implications of using projection equipment, such as interactive whiteboards, in the classroom, particularly if children and teachers might be standing in front of the beam to present to the rest of the class.

All projectors, if misused, have the potential to cause eye injury, and hence some simple guidelines should be followed. Download health and safety guidance from this page. Further guidance is available from Becta
