COVID-19 UPDATE – June 8, 2020

Weekly Safety Topic:

Facial Coverings
On May 29th Governor Inslee issued additional guidance for Washington State workers. As of next Monday, June 8th, it will be a state requirement for all Simpson employees to wear facial coverings. These covering can be homemade, or factory made. On the 3rd and 4th, you will be issued company provided face coverings. You will have the choice of a courtesy style mask or a continuous sock style. If you chose to wear a homemade facial covering it must meet the below minimum requirements as well as not have any offensive graphics or words. If you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a facial covering, you will need to furnish a doctor note. Employees and visitors are required to wear facial coverings once passing through the main gate. The only time your facial covering can be removed is if you work alone in an office or have high wall partitions (six feet and there is no in-person interaction) or if you are in lunch/break areas and maintain a 6 foot physical distance.

  • “Reusable cloth face covering that fully covers mouth and nose are required for employees covered by Governor Executive Order”

Social distancing not only needs to happen inside the workplace but also needs to happen in the parking lots. This should also include walking in from and out to the parking lots.

9 weeks in a row with no recordable injuries! You are all doing a great job! Keep looking after each other!

Coronavirus Updates:

  1. We are keeping www.simpsondoor.com updated under the employee information section located at the bottom of the webpage.
  2. Don’t forget that prior to punching in for work, employees must self-screen every day on the following questions also from the WA State Department of Health. And, really, you should be comfortable enough with these questions to screen yourselves BEFORE you come to work and call into the absentee phone line if you aren’t coming to work as a result of your answers to the questions below.

    “Yes, or No, since your last day of work, have you had any of the following:
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Or at least two of these symptoms
      • Fever (100.4°)
      • Chills
      • Repeated Shaking with Chills
      • Muscle Pain that is not attributed to physical activity
      • Headache
      • Sore Throat that is not from a known reason such as allergies
      • Loss of Taste or Smell

Shared Work Updates:


Employees receiving cash in lieu of taking vacation and or PTO, do NOT need to report this as income when filing their Shared Work claim.

Apply online: The fastest way to access your benefits is to apply online. The Employment Security Department has updated their website to make it easier to use.

The No. 1 thing Washington state residents are doing wrong is not filing a claim each week.

After you apply for unemployment benefits, you must submit a weekly claim the next week in order to begin receiving benefits. Then, you must submit a claim each week until you want your benefits to stop.

The Employment Security Department (ESD) expects nearly 1 million weekly claims to be filed starting Sunday, April 26. Here are three things that will help everyone get the assistance they need:

  1. File on a different day. This is a big ask, but it will help a neighbor in need: If you can afford to wait a couple extra days to get paid, please file after Monday. This will allow those who need the benefit most to file and get paid first.
  2. File late at night, or early in the morning. You can file online and by phone 24/7. Traffic is lowest late at night to early in the morning (11 p.m. to 6 a.m.).
  3. Try submitting on the phone in off-hours. Submit your weekly claim via automated phone system after 6 p.m. (800-318-6022)

While HR is happy to help you with your Shared Work, we are hearing positive results from the employees that are filing online and by phone and they are getting their money way faster than those we are faxing info for.
