Calls Confirm Strange Workplace Hazard at Apple

Calls Confirm Strange Workplace Hazard at Apple

The $5bn (£3.6bn) Apple Park became operational previous year with a limited capacity. The building makes extensive use of massive, floor-to-ceiling glass panels, giving the illusion that the building blends seamlessly into the surrounding forest.

The glass walls and doors are created to "appear invisible", the newspaper says.

One man in his late 20s suffered "serious bleeding" from the head and was left "disorientated". On January 2nd, 2018, area 911 services fielded two separate calls regarding distracted Apple workers who slammed into glass walls, as well as another two days later.

'We had an individual who ran into a glass wall pane and they hit their head, ' one person told a 911 operator on January 2 after reporting an injury suffered by their colleague.

In another incident, the employee walked into a wall with such force that he was "bleeding" and "slightly disoriented".

Caller: "OK. So we had an employee, he was on campus and he walked into a glass window, hitting his head, has a little bit of a cut on the eyebrow".

Thankfully, none of the injuries seemed to be life-threatening and didn't require hospital visits.

It emerged in the middle of February that Apple employees have been injuring themselves after walking into glass walls and doors throughout the multi-billion-dollar building.

To which the worker sheepishly responded: "I didn't walk through a glass door".

Apple may have spent a fortune on their brand new office complex in California but the high-tech looks come at a painful price. "Now the humans on the inside, that's a different story", Whisenhunt said, according to the Chronicle. Salvador has stated, "We did recognize this was going to be an issue, especially when they clean the glass". For now, visible black stickers have been placed on the edges of the hard-to-see panes.
