Class code 5213 is used for employees that work in concrete construction, not otherwise classified. Work within this classification will widely vary, but may include concrete work done on such things as foundations, piers, silos, grain elevators, self-bearing floors, culverts, monolithic concrete of private residences, concrete pads for satellite dishes, etc. Job functions that are commonly performed by employees in this class code are making, setting up, and taking down of forms, scaffolds, falsework or concrete distributing apparatus, placing reinforcing steel and stripping forms, grouting operations, cleaning or renovating building exteriors, guniting or waterproofing operations, and the placing of cement or plastic compounds in holes drilled by others. Additionally, the use of precast concrete, the slip-form method of construction, the wrecking of concrete encased buildings or structures, and concrete operations in connection with building raising or moving operations on commercial sites are also included in this class code.

Exclusions to class code 5213 would include excavation, pile driving, all work done in sewers, tunnels, subways, caissons, or cofferdams, concrete construction of bridges, street or road construction related work, the pouring of ground-supported concrete floors, concrete walls poured in flat forms on ground level, concrete pumping operations, concrete products manufacturing, swimming pool construction, guniting on chimneys, and dam or lock concrete construction work. 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.
