Class Code 6204

Drilling NOC

Class code 6204 is used for employees that are considered specialist contractors who engage in drilling work, not otherwise classified. Examples of drilling related operations that may be performed include, but are not limited to, water well drilling, exploratory core drilling (for ground strata characteristics), lag bolt drilling for anchoring, directional drilling, drilling in rock for shot holes, and concrete or masonry drilling. Work may be performed inside or outside, on a variety of surfaces such as floors, walls, rocks, foundations, etc. In addition, class code 6204 is also used to classify those who perform operations involving the vibroflotation process for structuring building foundations. Commonly used equipment and tools of this classification are earth auger drills, jackhammers, drilling rigs and bits.

Exclusions from class code 6204 would be drilling operations that are related to oil or gas well drilling, underground mines, or exploratory holes with the purpose of locating gas or oil. Additionally, trades that are not exclusively drilling related, such as plumbers, electricians, contractors, etc, but that perform incidental drilling as part of their work, should also be excluded and separately classified. Excavation operations, which change the surface of the earth by scooping or shoveling, should not be considered the same as drilling, which creates a hole using a drilling instrument. 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.
