5.3 explain situations that may require additional support, necessary for safer moving and handling within the social care setting
The National Nuclear Security Administration travels the globe, [ locating unsecured (or poorly-secured) weapons grade Uranium and bringing it back to the United States for safe keeping so it doesn't fall into the hands of terrorists or countries like Iran and North Korea, who would just love the opportunity to nuke us into the Stone Age. To date, they have secured more than 1500 pounds of
weaponized radioactive materials. That's just the tip of the iceberg. THAT would definitely require additional support. Instead, we are slashing their budget "to create jobs." ]

6.2 explain why it is important to have specialist training before assisting ans moving an individual
Weegy: Without proper training you could harm someone. it a legal requirement. An individual’s needs and abilities can change over the course of a day. [ Staff should understand the impact this may have on moving and handling practices. Individuals may become upset or agitated when being moved. Others, though willing to assist at the start of a manoeuvre, may find themselves unable to continue. Training may prevent injury arising in such circumstances. A natural reaction, while helping with walking, for example, is to try to prevent a fall. Injuries have occurred to both staff and the service user in such circumstances. Properly positioned, the helper may prevent a fall or allow a controlled slide. Having made the individual comfortable, they can determine how to move them safely – often with a mechanical aid. ] (More)
