Ensuring the safety of buildings and other construction works is a major public concern. This article gives an overview of the mechanisms and structures put in place in Europe, and more specifically Germany, to ensure safety in construction. The article identifies major risk factors and shows how the European and German governmental and private systems respond to these risks. The questions addressed include: How do regulators ensure the use of safe construction products and designs, and how is the execution of construction works monitored?
