Class Code: 9014

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 9014 applies to employers that primarily provide janitorial services for others. Janitorial services are defined as keeping a building clean by routine dusting; mopping, vacuuming, waxing, or polishing floors; emptying trash; cleaning or washing interior walls; and cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing restrooms. Code 9014 is also assigned to janitorial service companies that perform various types of maintenance or minor repair work for upkeep of a building. To qualify for Code 9014, maintenance or minor repair work must take place along with janitorial services that would ordinarily be assigned to Code 9014.

These maintenance or minor repair operations may include, but are not limited to, painting, cleaning windows, changing light bulbs, assisting occupants in the placement of furniture, replacing glass panes, clearing drains, and cleaning carpets. Code 9014 is not intended for a contractor such as a painter, plumber, electrician, carpenter, or “handyperson.” These employers must be assigned to the appropriate construction classifications. Code 9014 is not intended for heavy construction operations conducted by the janitorial risk. Operations such as new construction, structural alterations, or rewiring a building are considered beyond the scope of Code 9014 and are separately classified.
