Class Code: 5508

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 5508 applies to employers that perform street or road construction involving the preliminary excavating of mass rock from the right-of-way. Such operations may involve blasting to remove the rock as on the side of a mountain. Tunneling is not included in this classification. It does include incidental quarrying and crushing of the rock that will be used in construction of the subsurface of the streets or roads. Street or road construction contractors who, at times, work in areas where no mass rock excavation is required, but operate a temporary quarry and crusher to supply rock for road builders, also fall within the scope of Code 5508.

Refer to Code 5403 for extra-territorial premium determination guidelines that may be applicable to employers that have operations outside their headquarters’ state.
