Class Code 5037

Painting: Metal Structures Over 2 Stories

Class code 5037 is used for employees that paint metal structures that are over two stories in height, including drivers. Work will include shop operations, as well as outside work done at a customer’s site. Examples of structures that are commonly painted by those listed in class code 5037 include smokestacks, power-line towers, radio and television towers, observation towers, aircraft beacon towers, metal bridges (of all types, regardless of height), viaducts, railroad overpasses, trestles, elevated highways, and aircraft. Job duties may include such things as installing scaffolding, preparing the surface to be painted, painting the structure using a variety of methods, and related shop operations that are required as well.

While this class code includes a variety of work, the painting of fire escapes, metal storage tanks, oil or gasoline storage tanks, gas holders and silos, staircases, balconies, shutters, window frames, and window sashes are not included and should be separately classified. Additionally, any building that is made of wood, concrete, stone, or some combination of these materials would also be excluded. 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.
