Class Code: 3808
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 3808 is applied to insureds engaged in the manufacture or assembly of complete automobiles, trucks or buses. Insureds assigned to this classification may fabricate the chassis or other parts including the automobile, truck or bus bodies, or they may receive these parts from other manufacturers along with axle assemblies, wheels, tires, transmissions, clutches, engines, fuel systems, cooling systems, electrical systems, steering gears, truck cabs or any other part needed to assemble complete automobiles, trucks or buses. Code 3808 is also applied to insureds engaged in the manufacture of complete carriages or wagons. The operations involve the cutting, punching and drilling of metal parts as well as the cutting of lumber to proper length and subsequent assembly. This classification is applied to insureds engaged in the manufacture or assembly of golf carts, bumper cars used in amusement park rides, snowmobiles and skid or pallet jack trucks. Skid or pallet jack trucks are devices generally used in warehouses to move merchandise about. These “trucks” are similar in appearance to golf carts.
Massachusetts Code 3808 is also applied to risks engaged in the manufacture or assembly of automobile, bus, truck or trailer bodies made of die-pressed steel (Code 3822 is N/A MA). Code 3808 has also been applied by analogy to the manufacture or repair of boat trailers and shipping containers (boxes used to haul containerized cargo by ship, rail or air). Also, the manufacture or assembly of golf carts, snowmobiles and “home-type trailers” is assigned to Code 3808. Refer to Code 3507 for risks engaged in the manufacture or assembly of skid or pallet jack trucks. Code 9505 is applied to employees who engage in painting conducted in conjunction with the repair or manufacture of automobile, bus, truck or trailer bodies. The operations involve sanding, masking, spray painting and baking. These operations are separately rated, provided they meet the requirements outlined in MA Manual Rule IV-D-4. Code 3808 is not assigned to risks engaged solely in bus, truck or trailer repair and/or service operations. Such operations are assigned to Code 8380.
