Florida Workers Comp Specific
Class code 8227 is used for employees that work at a permanent yard location that is maintained for the storage and maintenance of materials by a construction or erection company. Examples of work that may be performed by those in this classification includes, but is not limited to, maintaining, repairing, and storing materials and equipment, incidental pickup or delivery of parts, mixing concrete prior to transport, and the repair or maintenance of metal or wood concrete forms (including reconditioning and leasing specialists). If an employee is considered key personnel (such as a foreman, engineer, or superintendent) they may be assigned to this class code only by a “change of employment” that meets the conditions in the Basic Manual.
Exclusions to class code 8227 would be those who perform similar duties at a construction site, temporary yard, or to equipment, vehicles, or materials that they own themselves, anyone working for an operation considered to be a mill, fabrication company, or shop operation, and those who should be classified to a separate code because of their key personnel status. 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.
