How was this glass shattering scene shot without getting any injury to the head?

This is one of the scenes from Scrubs. (or whoever he was) bumps his head into the glass and breaks it. The scene looks pretty realistic. How was it done without hurting his head?

Sugar glass (also called candy glass and breakaway glass) is a brittle transparent form of sugar used to simulate glass in movies. It is much less likely to cause injuries than real glass, and it easily breaks convincingly, making it an excellent choice for stunts.
