Class Code: 7502

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 7502 is applied to employers that operate gas companies involving local distribution of natural gas by means of gas mains or piping to their consumers. It does not apply to the production of gas, the construction or operation of cross-country pipelines that bring the gas to the local distribution systems or the construction of buildings and gasholders. This classification does include store employees, meter readers, drivers and employees who perform local gas main and connection construction; maintenance and operation of plant equipment; installation and repair of plant pressure regulators; and installation and repair of meters, appliances and gas regulators on house piping within their customers’ premises when performed by these operating companies.

Code 7502 also is applied to employers, including municipalities, that locally distribute liquefied petroleum gas (L.P.G.) by means of mains or piping, from their central tanks to the consumers. These local distributors are subject to the same procedures set forth above, the exception being that they distribute liquefied petroleum gas in place of natural gas.

Additionally, Code 7502 is applied to employers that operate gas companies operating gasworks wherein artificial gas is produced and distributed locally by means of gas mains or piping to their consumers. These companies may enrich their artificial gas with liquefied petroleum gas to maintain a standard heating value in their manufactured gas which is otherwise subject to fluctuation, particularly during periods of peak demand. This does not change the assignment of this classification for these employers because of the practical limitation of such enrichment. Code 7502 includes store employees, meter readers, drivers and all employees who perform local gas main and connection construction; maintenance and operation of the gasworks equipment; installation and repair of pressure regulators; and installation and repair of meters, appliances and gas regulators on house piping within their customers’ premises when performed by these operating companies. The classification does not include the construction of buildings or gasholders.
