Class Code: 7380
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 7380 is applied to commercial drivers, chauffeurs, messengers, and their helpers provided they are not otherwise classified in the Basic Manual. These employees are common to many businesses and are Standard Exceptions assigned to Code 7380 unless they are specifically included within the phraseology of a basic classification that applies to an employer.
The term “drivers” refers to employees who engage in duties on or in connection with vehicles and includes drivers, chauffeurs, messengers, drivers’ helpers, garage employees, stable hands, and employees using bicycles in their operations.
Code 7380 is not intended for drivers (chauffeurs) employed by employers that are in the business of transporting the public. Chauffeurs assigned to Code 7380 are drivers who are not employed by an employer classified as a public transportation operation but who may transport people. An example of this would be a bus driver employed by a financial institution to transport its employees between various sites at which the financial institution does business. For classification purposes, this driver is assigned to Code 7380 since he/she is a chauffeur for an employer that is not in the business of providing transportation to the public.
Code 7380 is applied to messengers or couriers who deliver mail, parcels, or packages by driving or bicycling. Drivers, chauffeurs, messengers, and/or their helpers may perform these duties for more than one classification that applies to their employer’s operations. Provided the conditions of Basic Manual Rule 2-G are met, pay earned for these duties may be allocated between each applicable classification for which these employees earn pay. If drivers, chauffeurs, messengers, and/or their helpers perform these duties for a classification that does not include drivers, pay earned for work performed for that classification is assigned to an appropriate drivers, chauffeurs, messengers, and helpers classification such as Code 7380. If drivers, chauffeurs, messengers, and/or their helpers perform these duties for a classification that does include drivers, pay earned for these duties is assigned to such classification.
An important distinction between Code 7380 and trucking classifications such as Code 7219 is that trucking classifications generally applies to the transportation of goods not owned by an employer, whereas Code 7380 generally is applicable to the driving of vehicles and/or the transportation of goods owned by an employer.
Building raising or moving operations should be assigned in the following manner, provided payroll separation is maintained:
When no separation of payroll exists, the payroll for the entire operation must be assigned to Code 5703 or the highest rated classification that applies, whichever is greater.

Related Operations Not Classified to Code 7380:
Code 7380 is a “not otherwise classified” (NOC) classification. This means that Code 7380 applies to an employer’s operation(s) only when no other classification more specifically describes the employer’s operation(s) or when a classification that applies to an employer’s operation that includes driving does not include the type of driving being performed. The following is a representative list of operations somewhat related in nature to Code 7380 operations that are not assigned to Code 7380. The term “trucking” below refers to the hauling of nonowned goods.
