Class code 9534 is used for employees that work for a mobile crane, rigging, or other hoisting service contractor, not otherwise classified. This is an all-inclusive classification that is designed to include workers in all areas of operations, including drivers and yard employees. Examples of work that is commonly performed by those in this classification include the transportation of hoisting equipment to and from work sites, rigging steel derricks used to erect steel structures, moving and hoisting of things from the ground to rooftops or upper stores of buildings, and other similar hoisting or rigging related functions. Hoisting or lifting operations are typically done using mobile hoisting equipment, block and fall, jacks, shoring timbers, rollers, ropes and cables, and booms. Additionally, those who install bells, chimes, or other related items in towers or tall structures are also included within class code 9534.

Exclusions to this class code would include individuals who perform incidental hoisting functions as well as other construction operations at the same job or location, those who lease or rent mobile cranes without operators, and anyone who falls into a scaffolding operation class code that is more appropriate to their work duties. 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.
