The COVID-19 pandemic has made the last 18 months challenging for everyone. Although MRS Training & Rescue were able to continue to operate throughout the pandemic, our training centre managers were unable to meet in person due to lockdown rules and restrictions.
Escape breathing apparatus are some of the most important equipment that you will ever use when working in confined spaces. If you need to take them onto the site, it is imperative that you understand the correct procedures for carrying and using them.
In this guide we provide advice on how to safely erect tripods which are used as anchor points for lifting devices needed to enable access and egress. Tripods are portable anchor systems which are usually used with some form of winch and safety harness.
For over 120 years, MRS has provided its specialist skills, experience and knowledge to effect the rescue and escape of mine workers from underground. Read more about our historic heritage, and how it has impacted on our present and future, by clicking here
Great course and much more interesting, informative and hands-on than the initial course I sat with a different company 3 years ago. Archie was great! 👏

I recently undertook an STCW course at this training centre the only thing better than the content were the tutors. Everyone at MRS really wants to see you pass and to help you get the best out of yourself during the course. Not only did the swimming pool that the centre usually use cancel due to an accidental double booking but some equipment we were meant to be training with was stolen the morning of one of the exams. MRS staff dealt with this swiftly and effectively by changing the pool and going to buy new equipment on the same day it was stolen to ensure we as the students still got the most out of the course. The pace of content is rapid due to the condensed course but there seemed to always be space to ask questions and make sure each of us understood the principles we were being taught. I couldn't recommend anywhere else in the UK that I would have had as much fun learning.
