Class Code: 7313F
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 7313F is applied to insureds engaged in the operation of coal docks including stevedoring. As evidenced by this classification’s cross-reference phraseology, it also is applied to insureds engaged in the operation of ore docks including stevedoring. Code 7313F is considered to be a highly restricted classification applying only to terminal coal or ore docks utilizing specialized mechanical apparatus. These coal or ore dock operators have no equity in these products. They merely engage in the wholesale transfer of coal or ore owned by others from vessels to railroad cars or vice versa. This classification contemplates the dock employees who operate, maintain and repair the mechanical apparatus. Also, the dock operators’ employees who board vessels to measure the holds, supervise the operation of the mechanical trimmers, and adjust and lubricate parts of the trimmers which move the coal or ore from the corners of the holds and position the coal or ore under the hatch openings where it can be reached by the unloading apparatus, are contemplated within the scope of Code 7313F. This classification is not applicable to contract stevedores or coal merchants operating yards; however, the temporary and incidental storage of minor amounts of coal or ore shall not preclude the assignment of Code 7313F to risks engaged in the business of operating coal or ore docks.
