Apple employees keep walking into glass walls

Apple Campus Apple employees keep walking into glass walls

Cook said at the company's annual shareholder meeting earlier this week that the public won't ever be allowed to see the inside without an Apple badge, and authorities have been called for at least one trespassing complaint in the early days of the new headquarters, according to the records.

Bergen says that some people are now sticking Post-It notes on the glass to avoid walking into the panes.

A massive ring-shaped office largely made of glass is the centerpiece of Apple's campus.

I'd imagine bumping into these glass panes hurt quite a lot, although it's not clear if Apple will be taking any actions to better protect employees.

Recognizing the problem, employees began to put sticky notes on glass doors so employees would know they were there. They removed the Post-its "because they detracted from the building's design".

Part of that construction hold-up was down to just how demanding Apple has been with its architects, contractors, and the specialists doing the internal fit out. This was to make everyone feel connected-everyone can see everyone else even when they are in their own offices-called "pods" in Apple-speak. However, another worker said other markings were already in place to identify the glass. "While it is a technical marvel to make glass at this scale, that's not the achievement", Jony Ive, Apple's design chief, told the magazine in May. "The achievement is to make a building where so many people can connect and collaborate and walk and talk".

It is not clear how many incidents there have been, but at least seven people were reportedly injured on the first day after staff moved in. In 2012, an 83-year-old woman sued Apple after walking into a see-through door at an Apple Store and breaking her nose.

But no incidents have been registered with the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

A sense of openness and clarity is key to the building's much-hyped design, with glass being one of the structure's main materials.

As you'd expect, Apple isn't commenting and won't let the general public into the building.
