MRS receives medal for International Cooperation

A man is accepting an award upon a stage, behind the stage lies a backdrop with various flags.

For over 100 years, Mines Rescue Service has developed its specialist skills, experience and knowledge gained from working in a difficult and potentially dangerous environment. Now it is helping companies around the world prevent accidents and reduce risk in any confined space, and has been recognized by EMERCOM of Russia with a medal for International Co-operation.

Earlier this year a delegate from EMERCOM visited Mines Rescue Services offices in Mansfield Woodhouse to learn from their team of professional accredited trainers, drawing not only real life experiences and scenarios they have faced, but to share knowledge and help build their competencies in safety assessments.

Then, at the beginning of this month, Andy Watson, Operations Directors at Mines Rescue, was invited to attend the 2nd International Forum of Firefighters and Rescuers in Moscow. 72 countries were represented and Mines Rescue Service were one of only  handful of countries chosen to receive the medal, and the only mines rescue company, which was presented by the Minister of Civil Defense, Emergencies and Disaster Relief.

Andy was also invited to deliver a presentation to all delegates highlighting key knowledge and expertise in the standards in safety training delivered by the company.

“It was a great honor to be able to receive this medal and know we have helped to raise standards in safety for our Russian customer Mittal,” said Andy. “We are proud to be leading the way in offering confined spaces training to a wide range of industries in the UK and overseas, drawing on our expertise and heritage of mine working and applying that to a wide range of confined spaces people work in today.”
