Class Code 3040

Iron or Steel Works – Ornamental

Class code 3040 is used for employees that work within a shop setting, making ornamental iron or steel works products, including drivers. Locations that meet the qualification of this class code will be shops that fabricate or assemble ornamental products, made of steel or iron, such as ornamental brass, bronze or iron railings, balconies, fire escapes, staircases, shutters, window frames, jig frames, window gratings, grill pieces, heavy metal doors (having a gauge of 11 or less), or other products considered non-structural in nature. In addition, the manufacture of aircraft landing mats by a welding process would also be included. Employees under class code 3030 may engage in a variety of jobs, including, but not limited to, laying out of pieces, marking, cutting, drilling, sawing, punching, riveting, bolting, welding, and assembling.

Exclusions to this classification would be any employee that uses blast furnace or convertor operations, casting of steel, or rolling mills. Operations that perform construction related work or manufacturing of machinery using the finished products are also excluded and should be separately classified. Similar operations dealing with metal works, such as structural iron or steel products or decorative steel sculptures, are also to be rated separately.
