Class code 6214 is used for employees that perform perforation work to casings in oil or gas wells, including drivers. Those qualifying for this classification will generally be specialty contractors who perform all perforating work underground to steel pipe casings. Additionally, workers in this class code will usually provide, transport, and operate their own equipment. Tools that are commonly used by those listed under class code 6214 include, but are not limited to, perforating guns, perforating rods, and explosive devices with detonators. When classifying workers to this class code, it is important to follow the extra-territorial classification guidelines for each worker to ensure that they are properly classified. Any perforating operations that are performed above ground would be excluded and should be separately classified.
