According to the lecture 6 (B101), if the Architect saw an unsafe condition on the construction site during CA, and recorded it in writing, it will be a "modification of obligation", and the architect will be liable if any accident happened, although the contract says, "The Architect shall not have control over, charge of, or responsibility for the construction means, methods, techniques, sequences or procedures, or for safety precautions and programs in connection with the Work".
I found it hard to believe. I'm curious how we should respond if this scenario comes up in the exam. "Notify the Contractor immediately in person but not to record it in writing"? Anyone?
