This picture was taken in a Korea airport. I found it very hard to notice many glass partitions, including this one. I almost hit once.
What will be the approach to get away from this kind of accident so we can live longer?

It is a common approach to use some kind of serigraphy (kind of sticker) in the glass so we can see through but notice there is a surface.
You can also play with the values of reflection and refraction of the material. Not only in the material but in the way the space is designed. So there can be lights (or lighter space like an exterior) behind the user and darker space behind the glass that make it more visible. Or even the disposition of the glass surface with regard of the user to create those extra reflections.
Other than that a correct design that doesn't make conflicts in the way the user enters spaces through such glass doors. When the glass separates two spaces (a window) making it clear that there is no continuity between the interior and exterior space can help (for example using a different pavement or a change of height between the spaces).
