Class Code: 2841

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 2841 is applicable to the manufacture of a variety of wood products such as baseball bats, bobbins, bowls, brush or broom handles, coat hangers, cork products, crutches, handles, golf club heads or shafts, gunstocks, hat blocks, jewelry trays, matchsticks (wood portion only—see Code 4279 for complete match manufacturing), pegs, potato mashers, pulley blocks, rolling pins, salad forks and spoons, shoe heels (manufacturing of coverings to be separately rated), shuttles, skis, spools, toothpicks, toys, wheels or casters, window shade rollers, and other similar products requiring only a minor amount of finishing and assembly work.

This classification also contemplates wooden (tobacco) pipe manufacturing, which includes the receipt of wood burls that are sawed, shaped on a lathe or hand-tooled and then drilled and countersunk for the stem. After sanding, the bowl may be left natural or coated with lacquer, polished and packed.

Certain insureds engaged in woodenware manufacturing may also engage in sawmill operations (See Code 2710 for a description of sawmill operations). Since sawmill operations are a general exclusion, they are classified separately unless included in the wording of a basic classification. Since Code 2841 does not include “sawmill” in its phraseology, Code 2710 is applicable to sawmill operations engaged in by woodenware manufacturing operations.

Certain Code 2841 operations are designated as “not otherwise classified” (NOC). These NOC operations shall apply to an insured only when no other classification more specifically describes the insured’s operations. The following is a representative list of operations somewhat related in nature to Code 2841 operations that are not assigned to Code 2841.

2735 Barrel Stock Mfg. 4279 Match Mfg.
2835 Brush or Broom Assembly 2923 Musical Instrument Mfg.—Wood—NOC
2881 Furniture Mfg. and Cabinet Shop—Assembly by Hand—Wood 2790 Pattern Making NOC (Wood)
2883 Furniture Mfg.—Wood 2731 Planing or Molding Mill

In addition to this representative list, one should review sources such as the alphabetical index in this manual to determine whether a classification other than Code 2841 or a classification other than a classification on the above list is applicable to the operations being reviewed for classification purposes.
