HSENI and CAB launch Bangor kiosk

The Health Safety Executive of Northern Ireland (HSENI) and Citizens Advice (CAB) have opened a new information kiosk as part of its drive to provide an easy and convenient distribution of health and safety information to local people.

The pilot kiosk will provide CAB visitors with access to a joint web portal providing access to HSENI’s and CAB’s websites and hence a wide range of information on workplace health and safety information as well as information on fourteen advice categories offered by CAB including: employment, housing, social security and health.

If successful, the project could be extended to cover CAB offices across Northern Ireland.

Acting Head of HSENI’s Information and Advisory Services, Christine Edwards, said: “HSENI is delighted to be able to offer visitors to the Bangor CAB office an opportunity to easily access a first rate health and safety information point.

"This complements HSENI’s One-2-One Helpline 0800 0320 121 which provides information and advice on all aspects of health and safety.”

The new service complements the information containing an extensive range of health and safety booklets already available at all CAB offices.
