Apple Employees Injured Walking into Glass Panes at New HQ.


The architectural fascination, that is Apple’s new headquarters is centred on a glass ring which hosts 12,000 staff.


But after the Apple Park campus opened earlier this year, the technology giant has discovered one downside to its obsession with stylish aesthetics.


Apple employees reportedly keep walking into the glass panels which form the walls of the spaceship-like building, with at least two suffered cuts to their heads and required treatment by emergency services.


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.


The building is surrounded by 50ft curved glass panels - the largest in the world. Inside, work spaces known as “pods” also have glass walls and doors designed to foster a culture of openness.


Apple employees began sticking post-it notes on the glass to highlight the hazard, but claimed the warnings were removed because they detracted from the building’s design.
