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.

I needed some ‘not your average’ confined space training for some quite specific tight spaces – I really didn’t want to just learn about A frames! MRS listened to my needs and delivered a great course that really helped drive home the need for care and safety and provided the knowledge required when dealing with confined space that altered the trainees’ ways of working.

MRS have made a conscientious effort to keep all personnel save during the pandemic. The confined space training i attended recently was delivered to a very high standard by knowledgeable and experienced trainers and assessors. Many thanks.

Mick Firth, Firmac Civils Ltd

MRS are always helpful and professional and always work flexibly to meet our requirements.

, Heineken

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.
