Who We Are


Britannia Safety & Training was founded in 1998 by Colin Wright, Managing Director.

As health and safety training consultants, we work with people from all industries, as well as providing services such as HR support and advice about products.

Our aim to is to help you get through the often tangled red tape so that you can understand what you’re expected to comply with – and make sure that everyone in your team has the right skills.

Having worked with over 5,000 clients, we have built up valuable experience and an extremely skilled team.

We have worked hard to create the perfect environment for training. As well as large, accommodating training rooms, our 6000 sq ft of training spaces includes areas specifically designed for specialised training courses, such as ‘working at height’. Find out more about our facilities by reading about the Britannia Experience.

From our years of experience, we have built up a list of products that are most commonly needed – and we stock a range of health and safety products that you will find useful once your training is complete.

The Britannia Training venue can also be hired, if you need an easily accessible meeting space in Norfolk.
