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!

As the maintenance manager of the brewing department at Heineken, Tadcaster, I have dealt with you for several years whereby you have provided rescue cover in all departments from kegging to brewery to the boiler house. During the years I have found you all to be honest, reliable, hard-working, conscientious and courteous. Your attention to detail with providing us with up-to-date risk assessments and emergency arrangements are of a high calibre which aligns with the requirements of Heineken procedures. Having MRS on site gave my staff the confidence to know that should something go wrong, the very best are in attendance to rescue them should it be required.

, Maintenance Manager, Heineken

As ever, very happy with the service provided, the lads were very accommodating with the different people who entered the confined space ensuring we were all safe at all times

, Liberty Steel

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.

, GFM International Ltd

We used MRS as on-site rescue team in one of our investigation projects where they appeared to be very communicative, professional and helpful during the course of the site work. Strongly recommend them.

Well prepared team, very helpful and professional even in the freezing cold conditions experienced.
