The “What Would John Do?” Health & Safety initiative started in May, incorporating the blunt but crucial slogan “Be Safe Don’t Die”.

The campaign centres on wrist bands for Welbro operatives and site managers that use the slogan that John Fisher our Health & Safety Manager signs off all of this safety bulletins with; and a saying that has been circulating around Welbro sites; “What Would John Do?” When John spots the bands being worn on site he will record it and for each band spotted on site a £1 will go into a Charity Pot that will be donated to Military Charities.

Wrist Band Be Safe Don't DieBe Safe Don’t Die” needs no explanation and we make no apologies for the bluntness of the message, as it helps to cut through any bravado on site and gets straight to the point; we want everyone working for Welbro to be safe and return home at the end of the day.


The second slogan on the wrist band, “What Would John Do?” is a saying that has emerged from John’s regular site inspections. Having provided guidance to the site managers in his role, as safety manager, a culture is emerging whereby Welbro site managers and foreman ask themselves the question “What Would John Do” when considering a safety issue.

John joined Welbro in the summer of 2014 straight from the British Army. He has a dual role within the Company visiting sites as Safety Manager, whilst being responsible for business development, especially in the military establishments. John was provided with a training budget by the army when he left and he now has a number of Health & Safety qualifications including a NEBOSH. He continues to study so he can achieve higher level qualifications.


Part of John’s success in his role at Safety manager can be attributed to his physical presence, as the 2012 winner of “Camp Bastion’s Strongest Man” during his tour of duty in Afghanistan, he is an imposing character. He also played rugby for the Army 1st team. There is a picture below of John during the strong man competition, in case you are wondering, there's a fully laden Land Rover at the other end of the rope.John Fisher 2012 Camp Bastion's Strongest Man


So remember

What Would John Do? – Be Safe and Don’t Die.

Industrial Buildings

Whether your Industrial building is large or small, occupied or vacated Welbro would like to work with you to find the right solution for your refurbishment project. 

Since 2000 we have refurbished a wide variety of premises for leading commercial landlords and directly for the end user. We have extensive experience refurbishing everything from a vacant warehouse unit to a fully operational manufacturing facility.

Early involvement in the planning of a project is key, especially when the industrial building is occupied. We would like to share our knowledge and experience with you to make the refurbishment of your industrial building a great success, with minimal disruption to your normal operations.

Call us and we will run through your options and provide budget costs. There is no charge for this service unless specilaist access equipment is required.

Commercial Buildings

Planning the refurbishment of commercial buildings often differs from industrial buildings, as they tend to involve more people. This presents a number challenges when they require refurbishment.

Our management team are aware of the extra care required when working in this environment, having work on film studios like Pinewood & Shepperton, various shopping centres and other commercial properties since 2000.

It is important to plan safety precautions to cause the least disruption but these measures may be more costly then the basic standard. Reduced disruption and expedient completion of the works often negates these additional costs.

Why not let Welbro help you plan and execute your refurbishment project?

Military Buildings

Most of the Welbro Directors have worked on Military buildings prior to the formation of Welbro, so their extensive knowledge and experience has been shared throughout the team.

Working on airfields, around sophisticated military aircraft and equipment requires the highest levels of safety and management.

This collective knowledge extents to World War II Aircraft Hangars, which is an area where Welbro have particular expertise regarding their design and structure.

We have refurbished Military buildings on both RAF sites & Army barracks throughout the UK and we have undertaken a significant amount of work in the Falklands Islands.

So whether you have a Hangar Door that needs servicing or would like to reclad your T2 Hangar, call Welbro.
