Class Code: 5213

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 5213 applies to all commercial types of concrete building construction, self-bearing floors, foundations, piers, culverts, silos, grain elevators, etc., and includes making and erecting forms, placing reinforcing steel and stripping forms. Code 5213 applies to each of the aforementioned steps in the concrete construction process whether all work is performed by the principal contractor or portions of the job—such as making or erecting forms—are completed by a specialty subcontractor. The term “self-bearing floors” mentioned above is used as a basis for distinguishing between self-supported concrete floors, assignable to Code 5213, and ground-supported concrete floors, assignable to Code 5221. A self-bearing floor is elevated above the ground and, being an integral part of the concrete construction itself, is assigned to Code 5213. A ground-supported floor of a building that is poured either at the beginning or end of the construction job involves the type of concrete or cement work included in Code 5221.

Concrete walls that are poured in flat forms on ground level are assigned to Code 5221, provided that the pouring employer does not tilt up the walls and secure them into place. This operation is assigned to Code 5221 since the exposure is the same as that of pouring a ground-supported concrete floor. Code 5213 is assigned to an operation in which an employer both pours the concrete at ground level to create a wall and subsequently tilts the wall into place.

The use of precast concrete and the slip-form method of construction are also included in Code 5213.

Other operations included in Code 5213 include grouting operation employees, who place cement or plastic compounds in holes that have been drilled by others.

Code 5213 is also assigned to concrete operations on commercial sites in connection with building raising or moving operations. When no separation of payroll exists, the payroll for the entire building raising or moving operation must be assigned to Code 5703 or the highest rated classification that applies, whichever is greater.

Special Conditions:

Extra-Territorial Classification Guidelines:

The following material was developed by NCCI to be used as a guide by auditors and underwriters in the determination of premium for contracting (construction employers) with extra-territorial employments where no company guidelines have been established for this purpose. Construction classifications are indicated by the addition of a construction code symbol (  ) next to the classification code number.

   
1.    Payroll of employees of contractors who have their place of business in a given state and operate also in adjoining states and who are constantly crossing state lines, but usually return to their homes each night, must be assigned to their headquarters’ state. Example: Contractors such as electricians, plumbers, carpet layers, etc.
2.    The payroll for executive supervisors who may visit a job but who are not in direct charge of a job must be assigned to the state in which their headquarters are located.
3.    There are contractors who maintain a permanent staff of employees and superintendents. If any of these employees or superintendents are assigned to a job that is located in a state other than their headquarters’ state, either for the duration of the job or any portion thereof, their payroll must be assigned to the highest rated of either the state in which the job is located or the headquarters’ state.
4.    The payroll of employees who are hired for a specific job project must be assigned to the state in which the job is located.

When a portion of the operations of an employer is insured by a monopolistic state fund, consider the special rules and requirements that may exist in such cases.

Related Operations Not Classified to Code 5213:

   
•    Concrete pumping operations, whether performed by a general contractor, specialist contractor or concrete ready-mix dealer, are assigned to the appropriate concrete construction class that applies to the location at which the concrete is being pumped. (In Oregon, assign Code 9534.)

Certain Code 5213 operations are designated as “not otherwise classified” (NOC). These NOC operations apply to an employer only when no other classification more specifically describes the employer’s operations. The following is a representative list of operations somewhat related in nature to Code 5213 operations that are not assigned to Code 5213.
