It is all about the people – one area which truly differentiates us is the experience of our operators on site. 

Our rescue teams are highly trained, confined space and at height recue experts, all qualified as either rescue team leaders or rescue operatives. 

They are all directly employed by MRS Training & Rescue as we passionately believe in employing the right people for the role. They have real-life skills and expertise in working in hazardous environments. 


When delivering services, our primary concern is for the safety of our teams and the teams of the organisations we support. Therefore, we are highly demanding when providing initial training and then proving ongoing competence, and we have a comprehensive competence management system, supported by regulated qualifications, with knowledge skills and behaviours being periodically reviewed and refreshed.

As well as working in a technical rescue function, our operatives pass on their knowledge in the classroom. Each has relevant teaching qualifications, and the skills to teach a range of courses such as:

  • First aid
  • Confined space, up to and including High Risk with Rescue
  • Working at height training, including specialist rescue
  • Fire Fighting and Fire Warden
  • Health & Safety

We pride ourselves on being prepared to handle whatever we encounter, and 120 years of experience mean we can handle quite a lot!

Without doubt an A1 service provider. Always try their best to accommodate in every instance and to a very high standard

Amco Rail utilised MRS to provide a standby rescue team in support of a complex confined space entry. The works were successfully completed without any issues. The rescue team on site carried out their standby duties very professionally, and this gives our own site staff extra confidence in the plan set up to manage the entry. The MRS team are the obvious supplier of choice to us, for specialist advice and rescue cover on our more complex confined space entries.

The job had some specific risks that could have had catastrophic outcome. Working with MRSL from the early planning stages covered all the potential risks and we had a plan in place should it have gone wrong.

I just wanted to pass on my thanks to you and your respective team who once again supported us so well over the summer as we undertook major refurbishment of the scour valves at Caban Coch. This was a critical project for us and safety on such a challenging job was our top priority. As ever your team did a great job providing critical safe access and emergency plan support – its very reassuring to have you ‘guys’ on site.

Peter Perry, Chief Operating Officer, Dwr Cymru Welsh Water

We initially engaged with MRS to carry out some high-risk confined space training for the drainage squad we have working on the site. Following on from that training we decided that it would be best to have an emergency standby squad on site while we were installing some deep drainage that had issues with gas ingress into the trenches and manholes. The service provided was very good. The team carried out the role of emergency standby for the drainage squad. They monitored the gas for us each day and stayed with the team throughout the works. The RAMS provided were very concise and were briefed to the whole team involved in the operation prior to commencing. All in all a very good service provided by MRS and I would definitely have no issues with using them again on future projects. Thanks for your help.
