Class Code 5491

Paperhanging

Class code 5491 is used for employees that perform interior paperhanging work, including drivers. Products that may be installed by those under this classification include light or heavyweight wallpaper, in patterns or solid colors, made from a variety of materials and coatings. Job duties that are commonly performed include cleaning walls, scraping and preparing surfaces for wallpaper installation, applying adhesives to the walls and/or paper, creating and matching patterns, applying wallpaper, removing air bubbles or pockets, and miscellaneous finishing and clean up procedures. 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. Additionally, operations that exclusively apply plastic film (without any conjunction with liquid tint operations) are also assigned to class code 5491.
