California health and safety law requires employers to protect their workforce "against the hazard of walking through glass" by installing barriers or conspicuous markings, leading to speculation Apple could be fined for violating workplace regulations. The building, crafted by famed architect Norman Foster, immortalized a vision that Apple co-founder Steve Jobs had years earlier.
Should the Apple employees be less distracted while walking around the new campus offices or should Apple do something about it? According to reports from Bloomberg, some employees walked accidentally into the clear internal glass panes of the pods that makes Apple Park what we see. "While it is a technical marvel to make glass at this scale, that's not the achievement".
Although the campus opened last September for the 10th anniversary iPhone introduction, it was done under a temporary occupancy permit, and Apple employees just started moving in last month.
Recognizing the problem, employees began to put sticky notes on glass doors so employees would know they were there. But they were soon removed in order to preserve the aesthetic design of the office.
When asked to comment about the head-smacking incidents, an Apple spokeswoman declined to comment. However, another worker said other markings were already in place to identify the glass. "The achievement is to make a building where so many people can connect and collaborate and walk and talk".
