Class Code 5059

Iron or Steel: Erection – Frame Structures Not Over 2 Stories

Class code 5059 is used for employees that work for a company that erects iron or steel frame structures, not over two stories in height. Work in this classification may include assembling and fabrication needed at the job site, as well as raising of the structures, securing with bolts, and welding or riveting operations. Structures that qualify for work within this class code are those not considered dwellings, such as garages, barns, aircraft hangars, warehouses, gasoline filling stations, Quonset huts, lunch stands, etc. Additionally, class code 5059 also includes specialists that erect concrete structural beams or girders (made by others) and those workers that connect bar joists to steel framework. Welding may be performed as well, so long as it is incidental to work under this classification and is done in connection with iron or steel erection.

Payroll divisions that may be used in conjunction with class code 5059 include employees that perform sheet metal siding erection or interior/exterior light gauge steel frame erection. 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.
