Class Code 5190

Electrical Wiring - Within Buildings

Class code 5190 is used for employees that perform work related to electrical wiring within buildings, including drivers. This may be either installation work or repair work, and includes any related fixtures or appliances as well. There is not currently any restriction on the capacity of the wiring systems, and work may be for a variety of things, from power circuitry to lighting. Employees working under this classification will generally be involved in running and hanging wires and conduits and installing small electrical fixtures like fuses, plugs, or snap switches. The electrical wiring installation for satellite dishes is just one example of work included.

Exclusions to this class code that should be classified separately include the installation of heating units, ventilation systems, air-conditioning and refrigeration units, and household/commercial appliances. As a general rule, the installation of electrical machinery or apparatus is also excluded unless it is considered incidental to work being done under class code 5190 (special rules apply). In addition, telecommunications companies that specialize in installing telephone or cable television lines are also excluded.
