Work done within the scope of this classification may be in connection with residential, commercial, or industrial construction and will usually include materials like brick, concrete, stone, marble, glass block, brick veneer, or cement. Structures that are commonly constructed by employees in this class code are fireplaces and chimneys, interior fireproof tile partitions, and exterior building walls. In addition, the installation of gypsum blocks or bricks, caulking, plastering, or stucco work of exteriors, boiler brick work, brick cleaning, masonry repair and relining of blast furnaces, the erection of mausoleums, masonry or tile silo erections, the waterproofing of building exteriors by use of trowels, tuck pointing (not associated with a construction work classification), and masonry operations in connection with building moving or raising are also included.

Related operations that are excluded from class code 5022 include the building of forms, the pouring of concrete, commercial chimney construction, monument setup in cemeteries, interior plastering, ceramic tile, indoor stone, marble, or mosaic work, and the lacing of wood or metal lath or wire mesh. 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.
