Class Code: 3822
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 3822 applies to employers that manufacture or assemble automobile, bus, truck, or trailer bodies made of die-pressed steel. Refer to Code 3824 for similar manufacturing or assembly operations that do not involve die-pressed steel.
The term “die-pressed” refers to stamped auto body parts such as doors, fenders, and hoods. These die-pressed parts are formed by forcing sheet metal into contact with a die that is the exact configuration of the part that is formed.
Employers assigned to Code 3822 may receive parts from others or fabricate the chassis and other parts required to produce the bodies. All parts are then assembled to produce the automobile, bus, truck, or trailer bodies.
The installation of interior trailer equipment by employers that manufacture trailer bodies is included in Code 3822.
Code 3822 is assigned to the manufacture or repair of boat trailers and shipping containers (boxes used to haul containerized cargo by ship, rail, or air), provided that die-pressed steel is used.
Code 3822 is also assigned to employers that repair or service bus, truck, or trailer bodies made of die-pressed steel. Repair or service as used in this sense refers to replacing nonmechanical parts or forming, trimming, and finishing the parts to be replaced and welding the parts into position. Refer to Code 8393 for specialists that repair or service automobile bodies.
