The University of Applied Sciences Mainz, Institute for Architecture (AI), provides lectures on safety and health issues on construction sites for students of Construction engineering and Architecture. These lectures are included in the curricula of the bachelor programmes (B.Eng., B.A.) and taught among the main subjects, between the third and sixth semester. The lessons ‘Occupational safety at construction sites’ and ‘Construction site co-ordinator’ are elective subjects for students of the major degree ‘Construction site management’ and are optional for other students of construction engineering and architecture. Both lessons enable the students to gain an additional qualification which enables them to function as safety and health co-ordinators at construction sites after between two years to five years of work experience(depending on the size of construction site) in planning, construction surveillance or construction site management.
