Class Code: 5472
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 5472 is applicable to contracting insureds engaged in asbestos-related operations involving pipe and boiler work exclusively. These operations include removal, replacement or repair of existing asbestos coverings as well as enclosure or encapsulation of piping. No restrictions have been placed on the methods of removal of asbestos-containing materials from around steam pipes and boilers; these operations in their entirety are classified to Code 5472.
This classification also contemplates installation (enclosure, encapsulation) of asbestos around boilers and steam pipes. For asbestos work other than with pipes and boilers, refer to Code 5473—Asbestos Contractor NOC.
As Code 5472 contemplates “pipe and boiler work exclusively,” a division of payroll is not permitted between this classification and Code 5473 when pipe and boiler asbestos work is conducted at the same job or location as other asbestos-related work. In the event that an insured does engage in both Code 5472 and Code 5473 operations, Code 5472 may be assigned to pipe and boiler asbestos work when this type of work is conducted at a separate job or location at which the insured does not engage in any other asbestos operations.
Please refer to Code 5403 for extra-territorial premium determination guidelines that may be applicable to insureds that have operations outside their headquarters’ state.
