explain situations that may require additional supports necessary for safer moving and handling in a social care setting
Situations that may require additional support for safe moving and handling in social care setting are as follows:
1.If you see something dangerous, put it right or report it immediately
2. [ You may also need to consider that your workplace is an individual’s home
3.An individual may ask to be left in the bathroom alone. You should support this
but only if it is safe to do so. You need to
consider the risks involved and the
individual’s capacity to understand the risks and know how to reduce them.
4.If an individual is in contact with electricity or the supply of electricity, do not touch them as you may electrocute yourself. Don’t use metal to help the individual get away from the source of electricity as it will act as a conductor and again you could electrocute yourself. You could use something made from wood like a broom handle.
