Class Code 6252

Shaft Sinking

Class code 6252 is used for employees that perform all operations necessary for shaft sinking duties, including pile driving, excavation, concrete work or lining, as well as contractors who do pneumatic caisson work. Work under this classification may be completed for bridge footings, piers, or foundations and even includes employees working under air pressure. Specific tasks that are commonly completed by workers in this classification include, but are not limited to, removal of earth from a hole with a small diameter but a lengthy depth, driving wooden or steel sheeting unto the shaft to prevent cave-ins, and the pouring of concrete as needed. Additionally, class code 6252 is also used to classify specialty contractors that are involved in non-pneumatic cofferdam work. Examples of duties within this scope are construction, maintenance, or removal of the cofferdam. 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.
