Class Code: 4828

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 4828 applies to employers that compound, blend, mix, bottle, and package chemicals that are not otherwise classified. The Code 4828 employer does not manufacture any of the ingredients that comprise the chemicals; it receives the ingredients from others. Refer to Code 4829 for employers that manufacture products requiring a chemical conversion. Chemical conversion is any process in which the substances used in the manufacturing process undergo a molecular change in composition. Unlike Code 4829, Code 4828 is assigned to employers that do not manufacture any of the ingredients they compound, blend, mix, bottle, or package.

Code 4828 operations may involve simple hand or machine mixing or blending where no chemical conversions are involved. Products may be prepared by blending materials in the presence or absence of heat to produce a product. Other processes Code 4828 employers may perform are sifting, grinding, pulverizing, drying, liquidating, and blending ingredients with or without heat.

Insect control involving the use of poisonous gases is additionally assigned to Code 4828 since the exposure is principally chemical in nature. Refer to Code 9014 for insect extermination work, including termite control, that does not involve the use of poisonous gases.

Code 4828 is a “not otherwise classified” (NOC) classification. This means that Code 4828 applies to an employer’s operation(s) only when no other classification more specifically describes the employer’s operation(s).
