For over 100 years, MRS Training & Rescue (formerly known as Mines Rescue Service), has developed specialist skills, experience and knowledge gained from working in difficult and potentially dangerous environments, to effect the rescue and escape of mine workers from underground (the ultimate confined space).
However, given the gradual decline of the coal mines over many years, culminating in the closure of the last large deep coal mine in December 2015, we have been able to expand and diversify to meet the needs of today’s health and safety market. We have leveraged our expertise and have branched out from underground mining into providing unique rescue services and specialist equipment (some of which has been designed using practical expertise gathered on the job).
At MRS Training & Rescue, we can provide highly specialised rescue and safety cover that can be tailored to meet your exact requirements and complies with Regulation 5 of the Confined Spaces Regulations 1997. We also offer a highly professional consultancy service for those requiring risk assessments, method statements or safe systems of work for hazardous tasks.
The 'can do attitude' of the MRS staff helped bolster our resources. They don't just sit around and wait on a rescue, they help out in any way they can, they become fully integrated into our Safety Team
On request, we can also provide a confined space assessment service which will highlight areas which can be designated as low, medium or high risk confined spaces.
If you wish to use your own trained personnel to carry out work in confined spaces, we can provide experienced, competent and accredited rescue / safety cover using one of our Emergency Response Teams.
