Apple employees can't stop banging their heads against the walls

Apple got a painful reminder that design and safety aren't friends

Despite the painstaking process, the Apple Park design is not infallible. "While it is a technical marvel to make glass at this scale, that's not the achievement".

While some patients had minor cuts, none needed hospital care.

If there's one common theme that runs through the whole building, however, it's the use of glass.

The first details about Apple iOS 12
Changes that have been postponed reportedly include a revised iPhone home screen design and new options in the Photos app. Unlike Google , Apple doesn't release separate updates for its default apps such as Messages, Calendar, or Mail.

MarketWatch asked Apple for comment on the issue and any mitigations it has sought to enact.

Apple's freshly completed spaceship campus was the final project of Steve Jobs, and its construction came with the exacting demands that he was known for. Apple CEO Tim Cook told 60 Minutes in 2015 that "the quality and the size" of the 3000 sheets of glass that have been used at the headquarters "are above all that has ever been accomplished". Unfortunately, these papers reportedly disappear because "they detract from the building's design"-perhaps removed by agents of Apple's Gestapo wearing invisibility cloaks? The achievement is to make a building where so many people can connect and collaborate and walk and talk".

There is one slight problem with going full "futuristic spaceship" with the design, though: The employees keep smacking into the glass walls of the workspaces inside. Maybe Apple employees, and all of us, should all just stop focusing so much on our phones, stay present in the moment, and walk looking straight ahead. That's resulted in repeated cases of distracted employees walking into the panes, according to people familiar with the incidents. In 2012, an 83-year-old woman sued Apple after walking into a see-through door at an Apple Store and breaking her nose. Steve Jobs tasked celebrated British architect Norman Foster to design the company's new headquarters back in 2006 based on his own conception-a giant ideal ring to rule them all, built using giant glass panes, carbon fiber, and ground unicorn carcasses. The construction team pushed back, but Apple held firm. If Apple is found to be in violation of the law, it could attract fines and implement other safety measures, according to the California Department of Industrial relations spokeswoman, MarketWatch reported.
