Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 5059 is applied to the erection of iron or steel frame structures, other than dwellings, including assembling or fabricating at the job site. It includes the raising of the structural members and securing by bolting, welding or riveting the frame or skeleton of buildings not over two stories in height, i.e., barns, garages, warehouses, aircraft hangars, Quonset huts, lunch stands, gasoline filling stations, etc. Specialist contractors performing the erection of concrete structural beams or girders, which have been cast by others, also fall within the scope of this classification as well as specialist contractors performing the connecting of bar joists to the steel framework. Sheet metal siding erection or interior or exterior light-gauge steel frame erection are properly subject to divisions of payroll as are other contracting operations where the rules of the manual relating to payroll division will permit.

Code 5059 also includes any iron or steel work on one- or two-family residences or other buildings used for dwelling purposes, including Quonset huts, not exceeding two stories in height. The operations involve the raising of the structural members and securing by bolting, welding or riveting. Specialist contractors performing the erection of concrete structural beams or girders that have been cast by others also fall within the scope of this classification as well as specialist contractors performing the connecting of bar joists to the steel framework. Sheet metal siding erection or interior light-gauge steel frame erection are properly subject to divisions of payroll as are other contracting operations where the rules of the manual relating to payroll division will permit.

Code 5059 also applies to employers performing the erection of iron or steel in connection with military reservation construction not over two stories in height. This would include barracks, hospitals, mess halls, canteens or post exchanges, administration buildings, officers’ quarters, and recreation centers. It is also applicable to the construction or repair of waterworks, powerhouses, warehouses used for storage of commissary goods, equipment, tanks, guns, etc., aircraft hangars, ammunition storehouses, repair shops, radio stations, and similar erection or repair work when this work is included under the same contract for construction, provided the major erection or repair cost or the majority of payroll is expended in connection with buildings designed for the housing, welfare, and keep of personnel. If the major erection or repair cost or the majority of payroll is expended in connection with buildings other than those designed for the housing, welfare and keep of personnel, the appropriate classifications must be assigned to the erection or repair of such buildings.

Welding operations, whether performed by principal or by specialist contractors in connection with iron or steel erection, are considered incidental to Code 5059.
