Class code 3726 is used for employees that perform steam boiler installation or repair work, including construction and the repair of foundations. Contractors that work within this classification will perform a variety of specialty work, including excavation, foundation work (both concrete and masonry), slinging or rigging of drums and headers into place, setting of tubes into headers, installation of super heating units, and the installation of steam fittings up to the header valves, blow-off valves, and water intake valves. Additionally, the installation of breeching by steam boiler erectors, the installation or repair of commercial or industrial tanks, commercial boiler scaling and cleaning of tanks and tank cars, and the coating of beer vats with chemicals are also included within the scope of class code 3726. Work may be done in both high or low pressure steam boilers that are considered commercial or industrial in use.

Exclusions to this classification include domestic boiler installations, work that is plumbing related and beyond the installation of the valves listed above, and boiler insulating or boilermaking operations. When classifying workers to this class code, it is also important to follow the extra-territorial classification guidelines for each worker to ensure that they are properly classified.
