Class Code 6251

Tunneling – Not Pneumatic

Class code 6251 is used for employees that are considered specialist contractors in non-pneumatic tunnel construction operations. This classification is all-inclusive and will cover all operations. Examples of jobs that are commonly performed include, but are not limited to, the removing of water, rock, and earth, placing, welding, and bolting bar stock and I-beams for support, shielding the bore by bolting or welding steel plates or wood bulkheads, lining the tunnel with concrete, steel or tile, and installing ventilation, lighting, and drainage systems as needed. Mechanical equipment, explosives, pumps, and drains are often used by those under this classification, as well as other various hand tools and welding apparatuses.

Subway construction and other operations performed under air pressure are excluded from class code 6251 and should be separately classified. 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.
