Class code 3365 is used for employees that work in a welding or cutting operation, not otherwise classified. This code would apply those who perform outside work, shop duties, incidental machining operations, and drivers. Examples of work that may be performed by those rated under this classification would include welding or cutting by traditional methods as well as computerized operations, brazing using solder with a high melting point, testing or inspection of conduits or pipelines (not oil or gas) meeting the requirements of the Basic Manual, testing or inspecting involving radiographic or X-ray processes, incidental machining operations, and other related work dealing with welding or cutting. When classifying workers to this class code, it is important to follow the extra-territorial classification guidelines for each worker to ensure that they are properly classified.

Employees whose work is better assigned to another classification, those working under air pressure, work done in connection with demolition jobs, iron and steel erection jobs, and oil or gas pipeline construction, testing or inspection. Additionally, certain projects that require welding or cutting operations to be performed in a particularly hazardous way will also be excluded and should be separately classified.
