LABOR AND INDUSTRIES

[ Filed March 19, 2004, 12:50 p.m. ]

Original Notice.

Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 04-04-098.

Title of Rule: Workers' compensation classification plan, chapter 296-17 WAC, General reporting rules, classifications, audit and recordkeeping, rates and rating system for Washington workers' compensation insurance.

Purpose: Agency proposes to revise the general reporting rules and classification plan applicable to chapter 296-17 WAC for workers' compensation insurance, underwritten by the Department of Labor and Industries. Specifically, to amend one general reporting rule, establish one new risk classification definition rule and amend one base rate table.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 51.04.020 General authority, 51.16.035 Classification plan/base rate.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 51.16.035.

Summary: Proposal establishes modifications to the general reporting rules, classification definitions, and rating table as contained in the workers' compensation classification plan to include:

Amend general reporting rules, WAC 296-17-31013 Construction industry rule, clarify construction debris clean-up and erection of scaffolding.

Amend rating rules, WAC 296-17-895 Base rate table, establish new rate for classification 5302 - computer service business.

New risk classification rules, WAC 296-17-67701 Classification 5302, establish new risk classification for computer service businesses.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: RCW 51.16.035 requires that the department maintain actuarial solvency of the industrial insurance (workers' compensation) funds and maintain a classification plan. Adjustments to the classification and rating plan reflect changes in Washington industries. Revisions to the general reporting rules and risk classification definitions are being amended to provide greater detail and clarity to the rules.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Ken Woehl, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 902-4775; Implementation: Kathy Kimbel, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 902-4739; and Enforcement: Robert Malooly, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 902-4209.

Name of Proponent: Department of Labor and Industries, governmental.

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Explanation of Rule, its Purpose, and Anticipated Effects: The department is required by RCW 51.16.035 to establish and maintain a workers' compensation insurance classification plan that classifies all occupations or industries within the state, and to set basic rates of premium for all classifications. The department proposes to revise the general reporting rules and classification plan. The rule proposals are intended to better clarify certain general reporting rules, to distribute the costs fairly among employers, and to ensure actuarial solvency. This includes classification definitions applicable to chapter 296-17 WAC for workers' compensation insurance underwritten by the Department of Labor and Industries.

These changes are brought about by various elements: (1) The department has conducted a review of certain classifications and determined that certain revisions are needed; (2) the addition of new emerging industries to the classification plan; (3) requests from stakeholders for certain changes or clarification in rules; and (4) to continue to clarify, while providing adequate detail, in compliance with clear rule writing.

Proposal Changes the Following Existing Rules: The department proposes to amend one general reporting rule, establish one new risk classification definition, and amend one base rate table applicable to chapter 296-17 WAC.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. The Regulatory Fairness Act (RFA), chapter 19.85 RCW, requires that the economic impact of proposed regulations be analyzed in relation to small business, and outlines the information that must be included in a small business economic impact statement (SBEIS). Preparation of an SBEIS is required when a proposed rule has the potential of placing a more than minor economic impact on business.

However, since the proposed rule would not place a more than minor economic impact on business, the preparation of a comprehensive SBEIS is not required.

RCW 34.05.328 does not apply to this rule adoption. RCW 51.16.035 requires the Department of Labor and Industries to establish a classification plan to include general reporting rules, risk classification definitions, and premium rates for all classifications in accordance with recognized principles of insurance.

The rule is significant under RCW 34.05.328, however, this rule is exempt from the significant rule-making criteria because RCW 34.05.328 (5)(b)(vi) establishes that rules that set or adjust fees or rates pursuant to legislative standards are exempt from the criteria outlined in RCW 34.05.328.

Hearing Location: Tumwater Labor and Industries Office, 7273 Linderson Way S.W., Room S119, Tumwater, WA 98504-4851, on May 3, 2004, at 1 p.m.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Office of Information and Assistance by May 3, 2004, TDD (360) 902-5797.

Submit Written Comments to: Department of Labor and Industries, Ken Woehl, Classification Services Section, P.O. Box 44148, Olympia, WA 98504-4148, or e-mail to WOEH235@lni.wa.gov or fax (360) 902-4729, by May 3, 2004.

AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending WSR 01-23-059, filed 11/20/01, effective 1/1/02)

WAC 296-17-31013   Building construction.   (1) Does this same classification approach apply to building and construction contractors?

Yes, but it may not appear that way without further explanation. We classify contractors by phase and type of construction since it is common for each contract to vary in scope.

Example: A contractor who builds and remodels private residences may frame the structure and work on no other phases of the project. On another job the same contractor may do only the interior finish carpentry. On still another job the contractor may install a wood deck or build a garden arbor. Each of these carpentry activities is covered by a different classification code. To ensure that contractor businesses receive the same treatment as other businesses, we assign classifications according to the phases and types of construction they contract to perform. Since some contractors specialize in one area of construction, such as plumbing, roofing, insulation, or electrical services, this classification approach mirrors that of nonbuilding contractor businesses. The policy of assigning several basic classifications to contractors engaged in multiple phases of construction may seem to be in conflict with the classification approach used for nonbuilding contractor businesses, but we have simply used the multiple business classification approach.

If we have assigned multiple classifications to your construction business you should take special care in maintaining the records required in the auditing and recordkeeping section of this manual. If we discover that you have failed to keep the required records we will assign all worker hours for which the records were not maintained to the highest rated classification applicable to the work that was performed.

(2) Who does this rule apply to?

If you are a building, construction or erection contractor and we have assigned one or more of the following classifications to your business, this rule applies to you: 0101, 0103, 0104, 0105, 0107, 0108, 0201, 0202, 0210, 0212, 0214, 0217, 0219, 0301, 0302, 0303, 0306, 0307, 0403, 0502, 0504, 0506, 0507, 0508, 0509, 0510, 0511, 0512, 0513, 0514, 0516, 0517, 0518, 0519, 0521, 0540, 0541, 0550, 0551, 0601, 0602, 0603, 0607, 0608, and 0701.

(3) Can I have a single classification assigned to my business to cover a specific construction project?

Yes, to simplify recordkeeping and reporting requirements we will assign a single classification to cover an entire project.

(4) How do I request the single classification for one of my construction projects?

You should send your request to the attention of your policy manager at the address below:


Department of Labor and Industries

P.O. Box 44144

Olympia, Washington 98504-4144


(5) If I have asked for a single classification on one of my construction projects, how do you determine which classification will apply?

You must supply us with a description of the project and a break down of the total number of hours of exposure by phase of construction that you are responsible for.

Example: You notify us that your company will be responsible for all plumbing and iron erection work on a commercial building site. You have requested a single classification for this project. In your request you tell us that you estimate that it will take one thousand work hours to perform all the plumbing work and five hundred work hours to do the steel erection work.

With this information we will estimate the premiums by classification.

Example: We determine that the plumbing work is covered under classification 0306 and the steel erection work is covered under classification 0518. Assume that classification 0306 has an hourly premium rate of $1.50 and classification 0518 has an hourly premium rate of $2.55. We estimate the total premium on this job to be $2,775 (1,000 hours x $1.50 = $1,500 + 500 hours x $2.55 = $1,275).

Our next step in this process is to develop an average hourly rate for the project. We will use this information to select the single classification which will apply to this project.

Example: We will take the estimated premium ($2,775) and divide this number by the estimated hours (1,500) and arrive at an average hourly rate of $1.85.

To select the single classification that will apply to a construction project, we will compare the average hourly rate that we have computed to the rates of the classifications applicable to the project. We will select the classification whose hourly rate is the closest to the average hourly rate that we computed from the information you supplied us with.

Example: From the information you supplied, we have determined that the average hourly rate for this project is $1.85. We also know that the rate for the plumbing classification (0306) is $1.50 per hour and the rate for steel erection is $2.55 per hour. We would assign classification 0306 as the single classification applicable to this project.

(6) How will I know what classification will apply to my construction project?

We will send you a written notice which will specify the basic classification and premium rate that will apply to this project.

(7) If I have asked for a single classification to cover one of my construction projects, am I required to use the single classification which you gave me?

No, but you should call your policy manager to verify what other classifications would apply to the project. The name and phone number of your policy manager can be found on your quarterly premium report or your annual rate notice. For your convenience you can call us at (360) 902-4817 and we will put you in contact with your assigned policy manager.

(8) I am a general construction or erection contractor, I subcontract all my work and have no employees of my own. Do I have to report to the department of labor and industries?

No, since you do not have employees, you do not need to report to the department of labor and industries. You should be aware that the workers' compensation insurance laws of Washington include certain independent contractors as workers. If we determine that an independent contractor that you used qualifies as a covered worker, you will be responsible for the premium due for their work time. You can also be held responsible for premiums due to labor and industries if you subcontract with an unregistered contractor and they fail to pay premiums on behalf of their employees. It is in your best interest to make sure that your subcontractors are registered contractors by contacting us at 1-800-647-0982.

(9) Am I required to keep any special records of subcontractors that I use?

Yes, you are required to keep certain information about the subcontractors that you use. The information required is:

Subcontractor's legal name;

Contractor registration number and expiration date;

UBI number (or labor and industries account ID number).

If you supply materials to a subcontractor, also keep a record of the:

Amount of material supplied;

Project name or location;

Date material was supplied; and

Completion date of contracted work.

Failure to maintain these records may result in the subcontractor being considered a covered worker for whom you must report hours.

(10) What classification should I use to report construction site cleanup by my employees? You should report the cleanup of construction debris in the same classification that applied to the work which generated the debris unless another classification treatment is provided for in other rules. For example, if you are a roofing contractor and you have an employee pick up roofing debris at the construction (project) site, you would report the employee involved in the site cleanup in the roofing classification (0507). If you are the general contractor at a construction site and have either classification 0510 "wood frame building construction" or classification 0518 "nonwood frame building construction" assigned to your business, you would report site cleanup in the classification applicable to the type of building you are constructing. For example, if you are a general contractor and you are engaged in building a single-family wood frame dwelling, you would report construction site cleanup by your employees in classification 0510 "wood frame building construction."

(11) I am a construction site clean-up contractor, my employees only pick up construction debris, we do no construction work, what classification do I report site cleanup in? If your employees are cleaning a construction site where a wood frame building was erected, you would report their work time in classification 0510 "wood frame building construction." If your employees are cleaning a construction site where a nonwood frame building was erected, you would report their work time in classification 0518 "nonwood frame building construction." If your employees are cleaning other nonbuilding construction sites, you would report their work time in the same classification that applied to the construction work that generated the nonbuilding construction debris. For example, if you are doing site cleanup for a concrete contractor that was involved in pouring and finishing sidewalks and driveways, you would report the work time of your employees involved in this construction site clean-up project in classification 0217 "concrete flatwork."

(12) What classification should I use to report the work time of my employees when they are involved in the set up of scaffolding, hoists, cranes, towers or elevators at a construction site? We use the same classification treatment for this type of work as we do with construction site cleanup. For example, if you are a roofing contractor and you have an employee set up scaffolding at the construction (project) site, you would report the employee involved in the set up of scaffolding in the roofing classification (0507). If you are the general contractor at a construction site and have either classification 0510 "wood frame building construction" or classification 0518 "nonwood frame building construction" assigned to your business, you would report the set up of scaffolding at the construction in the classification applicable to the type of building you are constructing. For example, if you are a general contractor and you are engaged in building a single-family wood frame dwelling, you would report scaffolding set up by your employees in classification 0510 "wood frame building construction." Helicopter services that are engaged to assist in lifting beams, air conditioning units, statues and other objects onto buildings or structures are to be reported separately in classification 6803.

(13) Is preoccupancy cleanup of a building by my employees classified the same as debris cleanup at a construction site? Since your understanding of what preoccupancy clean-up work is may be different from ours, we need to share with you our understanding before we can answer this question. Our understanding in this area is that preoccupancy cleanup occurs after the building is finished. The clean-up work consists of washing paint and overspray from windows, vacuuming carpets, washing floors and fixtures, and dusting woodwork, doors and cabinets. If you have employees whose duties are limited to this type of cleaning, we will allow you to report their work time in classification 6602 "janitors."

(14) If I have an employee who does some construction work, construction site cleanup and preoccupancy cleanup, can I divide their work time between the janitor and a construction classification? No, we will not permit you to divide the work time of an employee between the janitor classification and a construction classification. If you have an employee who does preoccupancy clean-up work for you, and that employee also performs other nonpreoccupancy clean-up work for you such as construction work, shop work or construction site debris clean-up work, then you must report all of their work time in the applicable construction or nonshop classification.
