AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending WSR 98-18-042, filed 8/28/98, effective 10/1/98)

WAC 296-17-31003   No-fault insurance.   What is a workers' compensation insurance program? Workers' compensation insurance is a no-fault insurance program that eliminates blame to either party for workplace injuries or illnesses. The ((principle)) principal features include:

Wage and medical benefits to employees who suffer on-the-job injuries or illnesses; and
Immunity from lawsuits for employers as a result of workplace injuries or illnesses suffered by their employees.

[Statutory Authority: RCW 51.16.035. 98-18-042, 296-17-31003, filed 8/28/98, effective 10/1/98.]


AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending WSR 04-20-023, filed 9/28/04, effective 11/1/04)

WAC 296-17-31004   Coverage requirements.   (1) I own a business. Am I required to have workers' compensation insurance coverage for my employees? Nearly every employer doing business in the state of Washington is required to have workers' compensation insurance for his/her employees. Washington law (RCW 51.12.020) does exempt certain types of employment from coverage. ((A copy of this law can be found in Appendix A of the workers' compensation manual.)) If you employ only individuals who are excluded from mandatory workers' compensation insurance coverage, you are not required to have workers' compensation insurance coverage.

(2) I hire contractors to perform work for me. Do I need to be concerned about premiums on their work? Yes. There are two ways you may be liable for premiums on the work they do.

First, they may be "workers" for whom you are required to report and pay premiums. The law defines worker to include both your employees and independent contractors you hire, when the essence of the contract is personal labor. See RCW 51.08.070, 51.08.180, 51.08.181, and 51.08.195 for more guidance about when independent contractors will be considered workers.

Second, the Industrial Insurance Act imposes premium liability on anyone who contracts with another to have work performed. Even if the contractor you hire is not your worker (for example, if the contractor uses one or more workers on the job), you could be liable for their premiums if they fail to pay.

(3) Is there any way for me to protect myself from being held liable for premiums owed by construction contractors I hire? Yes, if you are a registered construction contractor or licensed electrical contractor, and you hire a registered construction contractor or a licensed electrical contractor to do construction work that requires licensing or registration, you can protect yourself from being found liable for the premiums on the work that contractor does for you if:

(a) They have a principal place of business eligible for IRS deduction;

(b) They keep books and records that reflect all items of income and all expenses of the business; and

(c) You have verified that they have an industrial insurance account in good standing, or are a self-insured employer approved by the department.

(4) What does "in good standing" mean? For someone's account to be in good standing, they must:

(a) Be registered with the department of labor and industries for industrial insurance coverage with the state fund;

(b) Have a certificate of coverage, also known as a liability certificate, that has not been revoked or canceled;

(c) Have submitted all reports and supplements required by the department within the past year; and

(d) Be current with all payments due to the state fund, or are current with an approved written payment agreement with the department regarding all unpaid amounts due the state fund.

(5) How do I know that someone's account is considered to be "in good standing"? You can find out whether someone's account is in good standing by visiting the department's web site or calling your account manager. If the account is in good standing, we will give you a confirmation number you can keep as proof that you verified their status.

(6) I use the same subcontractors over and over. Do I have to verify that they have an industrial insurance account in good standing every time I use them? No. In RCW 51.12.070 protection for construction contractors only requires that you have confirmed a subcontractor's account within a year prior to letting a contract. When you check out your subcontractors on the department's web site or by calling your account manager, a confirmation number will be provided as proof you checked them out. This confirmation number is valid for one year from the time it is issued.

If you are notified by the department of labor and industries that a subcontractor's account is no longer in good standing, you may be liable for their industrial insurance premiums from the date of notification forward.

(7) Can I, as a construction contractor, be held liable if I verify that the accounts of construction contractors I hire are in good standing, but they fail to confirm the accounts of the construction subcontractors they hire? No. If you make sure you and your construction subcontractors meet the requirements of RCW 51.12.070, you cannot be held liable if they fail to make sure their construction subcontractors meet the requirements.

WAC 296-17-31005   Employer/employee relationship.   How do I determine if I am an employer? Chances are that if you employ one or more individuals to work for you, you are probably an employer. RCW 51.08.070, 51.08.180 and 51.08.195 all define the employer/employee relationship. These laws present the conditions that must exist before an exception or an independent contractor status can be recognized. ((Copies of these laws can be found in Appendix A of the workers' compensation underwriting manual.)) You may find information online at www.lni.wa.gov or you may call one of our offices and a representative will help you determine if you are an employer. We are listed in the government pages of your local telephone directory, or you can call our underwriting section at ((())360(()))-902-4817 for assistance.

AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending WSR 03-23-025, filed 11/12/03, effective 1/1/04)

WAC 296-17-31007   Owner coverage.   (1) As a business owner, can I buy workers' compensation insurance to cover myself?

Yes. If you are a sole proprietor, partner, corporate officer, or member of a limited liability company you may not be required to have industrial insurance coverage as provided in RCW 51.12.020. In these instances, you can still obtain workers' compensation coverage from us. We refer to this coverage as optional coverage since as the owner/officer, you are not required to have this insurance. Because owner insurance coverage is optional, you must meet certain conditions and requirements which are detailed on the application for owner/officer optional coverage. These requirements include:


Completing an application for optional owner/officer coverage;
Reporting owner/officer hours in the classification assigned to your business that is applicable to the work being performed by the owner/officer;
Submitting a supplemental report which lists the name of each covered owner/officer; and
Reporting four hundred eighty hours or actual hours worked each quarter for each covered owner/officer and in the applicable workers' compensation classification code.

(2) When will my owner/officer coverage become effective?

Your coverage will become effective upon receipt of your application in the department in writing or by fax unless you indicate a future date. However, no such person or beneficiaries thereof shall be entitled to benefits unless the date of injury were the next day or later after coverage was elected. We will not make coverage effective on a date prior to our receipt of your completed application for owner/officer coverage.

(3) Where can I obtain an application for owner/officer coverage?

To obtain a copy of this application, go to http://www.lni.wa.gov/FormPub or contact your local labor and industries office. We are listed in the government pages of your local directory or you can call our underwriting section at ((())360(()))-902-4817.

WAC 296-17-31008   Notification requirements.   (1) Will you notify me when you have opened my workers' compensation insurance account?

Yes, we will notify you when we have opened your workers' compensation insurance account.

(2) Will you contact me if you need additional information about my business?

Yes, we will contact you if we need additional information to classify your business or establish your workers' compensation insurance account.

(3) Will you provide me with instructions on how to report and pay premiums to you?

Yes, we will send you a written notice describing the classification or classifications we have assigned to your business and how to report the worker hours or other exposure of your employees to us. You will receive a rate notice which will detail information about your premium rate and what portions of the rate you may deduct from your employees wages. You should keep these notices with your business records. You can find a copy of a sample rate notice ((can be found in Appendix B of this manual)) at www.lni.wa.gov. If you have questions about your classifications or you need help with reporting instructions, call your account manager.

(4) Will you notify me if you are going to change a classification assigned to my business?

Yes, if we need to change the classifications assigned to your business, we will send you a written notice describing the new classifications and when they become effective.

(5) How do I notify my employees that they are covered by workers' compensation insurance?

We will send you a certificate of coverage and a packet of information when we open your account. The packet will include some special notices which you are required to post in areas where employees frequently gather. Areas where you might consider posting the special notices include employee break rooms, employee bulletin boards, or areas where time cards are kept. These notices will inform your employees that they are covered for workers' compensation insurance under the Washington state fund and will tell them what they must do if they suffer a workplace injury or illness. The certificate of coverage should be posted in a place visible to the public. This certificate provides confirmation that you have obtained workers' compensation insurance coverage for your employees.

AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending WSR 10-10-108, filed 5/4/10, effective 7/1/10)

WAC 296-17-31017   Multiple classifications.   (1) Can I have more than one basic classification assigned to my account?

Yes, we will assign other classifications to your business when the assignment of another basic classification is required or permitted by the description(s) of the employer's other classification(s).

Whenever you have more than one classification assigned to your account, you must keep detailed records of the actual time spent by each employee in each classification. An explanation of payroll records you must keep can be found under WAC 296-17-35201. Use of percentages, averages or estimates is not permitted. If you do not have original time card or time book entries to support your reporting, all worker hours in question will be assigned to the highest rated classification applicable to your business operations.

(2) Are there other circumstances when I can have more than one basic classification assigned to my account?

Yes, under certain circumstances we will assign more than one basic classification to your account. These circumstances include:

The employer is operating a secondary business which includes operations that we do not consider a normal part of that employer's principal business in Washington, or

The employer has multiple retail store locations.

In these instances we will assign additional basic classifications only if all of the following conditions are met:

The employer maintains separate payroll records for each business,

Different employees work in each business,

Each business is separated by structural partitions if they share a common business location,

Each business can exist independently of the other, and

The classification language of the principal business does not prohibit the assignment of the secondary classification.

If all of the above five conditions are not met, then the operations of the secondary business will be reported in the highest rated classification that applies to the employer.

(3) What do you mean by the term "principal business?"

The principal business is represented by the basic classification assigned to an employer which produces the greatest amount of exposure. The principal business does not include standard exception or general exclusion classifications or operations.

(4) If my business is assigned a basic classification and a standard exception classification and I have an employee who works in both classifications, can I divide their exposure (hours) between the two classifications on my quarterly report?

No, you cannot divide an employee's exposure (work hours) between a basic classification and standard exception classification. An explanation of "standard exception classification" is discussed in ((the next section ())WAC 296-17-31018(2)(())). If an employee performs work covered by a basic classification and a standard exception classification, all of their exposure (hours) must be reported in the basic classification applicable to your business. You cannot report the exposure (hours) of any employee in a standard exception classification if they perform duties covered by a basic classification assigned to your business. Refer to WAC 296-17-31018 for a list and explanation of the "exception classifications."

(5) I have more than one standard exception classification assigned to my business. One of my employees works in more than one of the standard exception classifications. Can I divide their exposure (hours) between two or more standard exception classifications on my quarterly report?

No, you cannot divide an employee's work hours between two standard exception classifications. You must report all exposure (work hours) in the highest rated standard exception classification applicable to the work being performed.

AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending WSR 12-11-109, filed 5/22/12, effective 7/1/12)

WAC 296-17-310171   How to report hours for employees supporting multiple business operations.   I have more than one basic classification assigned to my business and I have workers who work in more than one of these classifications. Can I divide their hours between these basic classifications on my quarterly report? Yes, you may divide a worker's hours between basic classifications when:

The classification descriptions allow a division of hours; and

You maintain records from which the department can determine the hours the worker worked in each classification.

If the classification descriptions do not allow a division of hours, or if you fail to maintain adequate records, you must report the workers' hours in the highest rated risk classification applicable to your business, unless you can establish that the worker did not work in that classification.

Example: An employer has the risk classifications and rates shown below:


Risk Class Description Rate
0507 05 Roofing work 5.1370
0510 00 Wood frame building construction 2.9554
0513 00 Interior finish carpentry 1.3821

If the employer did not maintain records showing in which classes a worker worked, all of the worker's hours must be reported in class 0507.

If the employer had records that showed the worker only worked in classifications 0510 and 0513, but no further detail, all of the worker's hours must be reported in classification 0510.

If the employer had records that showed the hours the worker worked in classification 0510 and the hours the worker worked in 0513, the employer may report the worker's hours in both classes.

I have employees with duties that support more than one basic classification, but I am unable to distinguish their hours between classifications. In what classification(s) do I report these workers' hours? Sometimes employers are unable to divide a worker's hours between two or more classifications because the same work is incidental to more than one classification. You must report these hours in your governing classification. See "What is my governing classification?"

What is incidental work? Incidental work is any work, unless specifically excluded, that supports the operations described in your classification description(s), but takes place away from where the product or service is produced.

For example:

There is no incidental work:

At the construction site if the employer is the builder;

At the assembly facility if the employer is the manufacturer;

In the emergency room if the employer is the hospital;

In the kitchen, if the employer is ((in)) the restaurant.

Incidental work may include:

Laundry workers employed by but not working at a hotel;

Warehouse workers employed by but not working at a retail store;

A technical support team working for but not at a wholesale distributor;

Pick-up or delivery work;

Travel time.

What is my governing classification? Your governing classification is the risk classification that describes what we consider your principal business. It is the basic classification assigned to your business with the largest number of worker hours/units reported in the experience rating period as defined by WAC 296-17-850(2). If you're not sure which classification is your governing classification, you should contact your account manager or refer to the expected loss summary in your current experience rating calculation.

If you're a new business and/or a business not experience rated, a provisional governing classification may be approved by your account manager.

The following exception classifications cannot be considered governing classifications:

4900

4904

4911

5206

6301

6303

7100

7101

Example 1: You operate both a motel with classification 4905, and a restaurant with classification 3905. You have an off-site laundry facility that cleans the linens for both the restaurant and for the motel.

In the sample 2009 expected loss summary shown below, the governing classification is the restaurant classification 3905 with a total of 108,199 units.

You must report all the laundry worker hours in your governing classification.

Example 2: You are a cabinet manufacturer who also offers installation services to your customers. Your manufacturing operations are under classification 2907 and your employees performing the installation service are under classification 0513. Your expected loss summary confirms you report more hours for manufacturing work in classification 2907 than for installation work in classification 0513. You must report all the delivery work in classification 2907.

Example 3: You have a floor covering store and also offer installation services to your customers. Your store operations are under classification 6309 and your employees performing the installation service are under classification 0502. Your expected loss summary confirms you report more hours for installation work in classification 0502 than for store operations in classification 6309. You must report all the delivery work in class 0502.

WAC 296-17-31025   Change in business operations.   If I change the type of business I operate, or add a new operation, should I call you? Yes, we rely on you to update us about changes in your business operations. We provide a place on your quarterly premium reports to let us know about any changes you have made. If you need help determining if changes to your account are necessary, you can call your account manager. Depending on the type of change you are making, you may need to complete a new ((master)) business license application. The name and phone number of your account manager can be found on your quarterly premium report or annual rate notice. For your convenience you can call us at 360-902-4817 and we will put you in contact with your assigned account manager.

WAC 296-17-31026   Reporting multiple business operations.   If I have more than one business, can I report them on the same account? The way the businesses are organized will make a difference. Each separate "ownership type" must be classified and reported separately from any other much the same way you must keep each business' financial records separate from any other. Your ((master)) business license application must specify the "ownership type" of your business, such as, sole proprietor, partnership, corporation, etc. If that one ownership type registration is for more than one location of the same business or more than one type of business, you can choose to report all of them on the same account or on separate accounts. However, if you register each as a separate ownership type, you must report them on separate accounts.

AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending WSR 98-18-042, filed 8/28/98, effective 10/1/98)

WAC 296-17-31029   Insurance principles.   (1) What insurance principles does the department of labor and industries use when a new classification is developed?

Those principles are broken down into four major components as follows:

Administration
Equity
Homogeneity
Safety
A detailed explanation of these principles can be found in subsection (2) of this section.

(2) What are these principles?

Administration: Recordkeeping requirements must be simple and easy to follow. If our classification system imposed burdensome recordkeeping requirements, most employers would find it difficult to comply. Resolving complaints related to burdensome recordkeeping requirements would be in nobody's interest. The premium rate for your basic classification is based on the average exposure to hazard of all your workers. If our classification system were based upon individual occupations, you would pay a lower rate for your workers whose duties are considered low hazard, but you would pay a higher rate for your workers who have duties that expose them to a greater hazard. The total premium you pay would not be decreased; it would only be redistributed and would require more recordkeeping. Having one basic classification assigned to cover all the operations makes recordkeeping and reporting easier for you.
Statistical credibility or equity: By monitoring our classification plan, we ensure that enough hours are reported in each classification to provide a meaningful statistical base. A large enough statistical base helps avoid sudden large increases or decreases in rates and keeps them at the lowest possible level. We refer to this as statistical credibility. Classifications must also be responsive to change if equity and fairness are to be achieved. Our classification plan is in a constant state of evolution. In the early 1970s we had approximately 45 classifications. Today we have over 300 main classifications and approximately 1,000 subclassification codes to track losses. In some industries, the evolution is gradual, and no change to the classification itself is needed. We recognize that the wording used to describe a classification may not have kept up with changes in an industry. However, as the industry conditions evolve because of modern equipment, new processes or materials, or changes in employment laws and safety standards, so does the experience upon which the rate is based. In other words, the changes in the experience which ((is)) are used to develop premium rates reflect new developments in processes, equipment, and technology even though the wording in the classification is unchanged. We strive to keep our classification language current. Although it would be easy to just change the classification wording as we encounter changes in an industry, Washington law requires that we conduct public hearings before we make official changes to the rule. We do this as a public safeguard and to involve business in the change process. As technologies change or new industries develop, we receive requests from industry representatives for new classifications or for determination of proper classification assignments for the new processes. We will evaluate the request and determine if there is a large enough group of employers to justify a new classification. Any classification must produce enough premium to cover losses. In addition, as specific industries become obsolete or certain processes are no longer in use we will discontinue the classifications that covered them.
Homogeneity: Although it is rare that any two businesses are identical, our classification plan recognizes that similar businesses have similar exposures to occupational injury and disease. Employers with similar operations and exposures are grouped together so each classification includes common exposures and carries a rate that reflects those exposures. This method of grouping homogenous risks ensures that the overall cost of the workers' compensation system is distributed fairly among the businesses we insure. Classifications must also be mutually exclusive. Our classifications are clearly defined so that each type of business or industry fits in only one basic classification.
Workplace safety and accident prevention: By classifying employers by the nature of their business, each industry can take responsibility for controlling its own workers' compensation costs. Employers may belong to a trade association, which usually offers safety or risk management services. If such services result in fewer and less costly accidents, that improved experience will tend to lower the base rates for that industry. If our classification system were based upon the occupations or duties of employees, the success of a single industry's safety or risk management program would have little impact on its premium costs.

Example: Many retail grocery stores employ meat cutters. If grocery stores wanted to reduce the frequency of injury to their meat cutters they could develop a safety plan that focused on proper meat handling, lifting, and cutting. Assuming the safety program was successful and reduced the cost associated with meat cutter claims, the rate for grocery stores would go down. If, on the other hand, all meat cutters, such as those who work for restaurants, grocery stores, or slaughter houses, reported in a single meat cutter classification, it is doubtful that the grocery stores' safety program would have any impact on the premium rates since grocery stores' meat cutters would represent only a small portion of a meat cutter classification.

AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending WSR 11-24-026, filed 12/1/11, effective 1/1/12)

WAC 296-17-870   Evaluation of actual losses.   (1) Except as provided in subsections (3) through (12) of this section, the actual losses for claims with a date of injury during the experience period will be evaluated on the "valuation date." Losses on claims occurring outside the experience period will not be included. The actual losses for closed claims must include:

(a) Accident and medical aid payments; and

(b) Pension reserve amounts paid by the accident fund; and

(c) Accident and medical aid benefits or payments that are scheduled to be paid; and

(d) Reserve for other accident and medical aid benefits accessible by the worker while the claim is closed.

The actual losses for claims that are open may, in addition, also include a reserve for future payments. Actual losses do not include wage subsidies or reimbursements paid by the stay-at-work program.

(2) Valuation date. The valuation date shall be June 1, seven months immediately preceding the effective date of premium rates.

(3) Retroactive adjustments - Revision of losses between valuation dates. No claim value shall be revised between valuation dates and no retroactive adjustment of an experience modification shall be made because of disputation concerning the judgment of the claims examiner or because of subsequent developments except as specifically provided in the following cases:

(a) In cases where loss values are included or excluded through mistake other than error of judgment.

(b) In cases where a third party recovery is made, subject to subsection (5)(a) of this section.

(c) In cases where the claim qualifies as a second injury claim under the provisions of RCW 51.16.120.

(d) In cases where a claim, which was previously evaluated as a compensable claim, is closed and is determined to be noncompensable (ineligible for benefits other than medical treatment).

(e) In cases where a claim is closed and is determined to be ineligible for any benefits.

In the above specified cases retroactive adjustment of the experience modification shall be made for each rating in which the claim was included. Retroactive adjustments will not be made for rating periods more than ten years prior to the date on which the claim status was changed.

(4) Average death value. Each fatality occurring to a worker included within the mandatory or elective coverage of Title 51 RCW shall be assigned the "average death value." The "average death value" shall be the average incurred cost for all such fatalities occurring during the experience period. The average death value is set forth in WAC 296-17-880 (Table II).

(5) Third-party recovery - Effect on experience modification.

(a) For claims with injury dates prior to July 1, 1994, a potential claim cost recovery from action against a third party, either by the injured worker or by the department, shall not be considered in the evaluation of actual losses until such time as the third-party action has been completed. If a third-party recovery is made after a claim had previously been used in an experience modification calculation, the experience modification shall be retroactively adjusted. The department shall compute a percentage recovery by dividing the current valuation of the claim into the amount recovered or recoverable as of the recovery date, and shall reduce both primary and excess losses previously used in the experience modification calculation by that percentage.

(b) For claims with injury dates on or after July 1, 1994, if the department determines that there is a reasonable potential of recovery from an action against a third party, both primary and excess values of the claim shall be reduced by fifty percent for purposes of experience modification calculation, until such time as the third-party action has been completed. This calculation shall not be retroactively adjusted, regardless of the final outcome of the third-party action. After a third-party recovery is made, the actual percentage recovery shall be applied to future experience modification calculations.

(c) For third-party actions completed before July 1, 1996, the claim shall be credited with the department's net share of the recovery, after deducting attorney fees and costs. For third-party actions completed on or after July 1, 1996, the claim shall be credited with the department's gross share of the recovery, before deducting attorney fees and costs.

(d) Definitions:

(i) As used in this section, "recovery date" means the date the money is received at the department or the date the order confirming the distribution of the recovery becomes final, whichever comes first.

(ii) As used in this section, "recoverable" means any amount due as of the recovery date and/or any amount available to offset case reserved future benefits.

(6) Second injury claims. The primary and excess values of any claim which becomes eligible for second injury relief under the provisions of RCW 51.16.120, as now or hereafter amended, shall be reduced by the percentage of relief granted.

(7) Occupational disease claims. When a claim results from an employee's exposure to an occupational disease hazard, the "date of injury," for the purpose of experience rating, will be the date the disability was diagnosed and that gave rise to the filing of a claim for benefits. The cost of any occupational disease claim, paid from the accident fund and medical aid fund and arising from exposure to the disease hazard under two or more employers, shall be prorated to each period of employment involving exposure to the hazard. Each insured employer who had employed the claimant during the experience period, and for at least ten percent of the claimant's exposure to the hazard, shall be charged for his/her share of the claim based upon the prorated costs.

(8) Maximum claim value. No claim shall enter an employer's experience record at a value greater than the "maximum claim value." The maximum claim value is set forth in WAC 296-17-880 (Table II).

(9) Catastrophic losses. Whenever a single accident results in the deaths or total permanent disability of three or more workers employed by the same employer, costs charged to the employer's experience shall be limited as required by RCW 51.16.130.

(10) Acts of terrorism. Whenever any worker insured with the state fund sustains an injury or occupational disease as a result of an incident certified to be an act of terrorism under the U.S. Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002, the costs of the resulting claim shall be excluded from the experience rating computation of the worker's employer.

(11) Claims filed by preferred workers. The costs of subsequent claims filed by certified preferred workers will not be included in experience calculations, as provided in WAC ((296-16-010)) 296-16-150.

(12) Life and rescue phase of emergencies: This provision applies to "emergency workers" of nongovernmental employers assigned to report in classification 7205 (WAC 296-17A-7205) who assist in a life and rescue phase of a state or local emergency (disaster). The life and rescue phase of an emergency is defined in RCW 51.16.130(3) as being the first seventy-two hours after a natural or man-made disaster has occurred. For an employer to qualify for this special experience rating relief, a state or local official such as, but not limited to, the governor; a county executive; a mayor; a fire marshal; a sheriff or police chief must declare an emergency and must request help from private sector employers to assist in locating and rescuing survivors. This special relief is only applicable to nongovernmental employers during this initial seventy-two hour phase of the declared emergency unless the emergency has been extended by the official who declared the emergency. The cost of injuries or occupational disease claims filed by employees of nongovernmental employers assisting in the life and rescue phase of a declared emergency will not be charged to the experience record of the nongovernmental state fund employer.

0510-00 Wood frame building: Construction or alterations, N.O.C.

Applies to contractors engaged in wood frame building construction or alterations not covered by another classification (N.O.C.). For the purposes of this classification, wood frame building construction means buildings erected exclusively of wood or wood products. This classification includes all building framing activities done in connection with wood frame building construction including:

Placement of roof trusses;

Sheathing roofs;

Installation of exterior building siding;

Installation of exterior doors and door frames;

Installation of windows, window frames, and skylights when performed by framing workers as part of the framing contract on a wood frame building;

Erection of log home shells at customer's location.

The manufacturing of log homes in a permanent yard which includes peeling the logs, notching the logs with chainsaws, and assembly is to be reported in classification 1003-06.

This classification excludes all other phases of wood frame building construction not listed as part of the framing activities above such as, but not limited to:

Site preparation and excavation (0101);

Overhead or underground utilities, asphalt work, or concrete work which is to be reported separately in the applicable classification;

New landscape work (0301);

Brick work (0302);

Stucco work (0303);

Plumbing work (0306);

HVAC work (0307);

Carpet and tile work (0502);

Exterior painting (0504);

Roof work (0507);

Installation of sheet metal siding, gutters, and nonstructural sheet metal patio covers/carports (0519);

Interior painting (0521);

Electrical work (0601); and

Wallboard installation, taping or texturing which are to be reported separately in the applicable classifications. For a more thorough description of the activities included and excluded from wood frame building construction, review the Construction Industry Guide.

Special note: Classification 0510 also includes wood frame building alterations or remodel work when the activity involves building new additions. The term "new additions" is defined as adding on to an existing wood frame building (upwards or outwards) in which the use of structural supports and main bearing beams is required. This is distinguishable from classification 0516 - Building repair or carpentry work that typically does not require the placement of structural supports or main bearing beams. The purpose of classification 0516 is to build or rebuild with nonstructural or bearing beams, or to replace an existing portion (including existing structural and bearing beams) of a wood frame building for appearances or as a result of deterioration to make it appear new again. Care should be exercised as the terminology to build, rebuild, remodel, construct or reconstruct is irrelevant to assignment of classification which should recognize what the project actually involves.

Guidelines:

Altering all or part of an existing wood frame building by adding on new additions - 0510

Constructing a new wood frame building that never existed - 0510

Remodeling all or part of an existing wood frame building without adding on new additions - 0516

Altering all or part of an existing wood garage by adding on new additions - 0510

Altering the existing interior of a wood frame building by adding exterior additions - 0510

Installation of wood or vinyl siding on an existing structure by a remodeling contractor - 0516-00 or 0510-00

Rebuilding an existing wood carport or wood shed (all or part) with or without new additions - 0516

Remodeling all or part of an existing wood garage without adding on new additions - 0516

Remodeling the existing interior of a wood frame building without adding exterior additions - 0516.


0510-99 Wood frame building: Construction or alteration, N.O.C. (only to be assigned by the wood framing specialist)

Applies to framing contractors who consider themselves to be independent contractors, have no employees, and have not elected owner coverage for themselves.

The purpose of assigning this classification is to allow the independent contractor the opportunity to be checked for "account in good standing" status for prime contractor liability.

Special note: Any contractor who hires employees or elects owner coverage is required to report in the applicable construction classification.

0516-00 Building repair, remodeling and carpentry

This subcode applies to a firm that chooses to report all construction phases in one classification. This is to simplify recordkeeping.

Applies to contractors engaged in building repair, remodeling and carpentry work.

This classification applies to:

Remodeling and carpentry-related framing work on concrete, brick and steel buildings.

Wood framed building renovation and remodeling projects when the skeleton framework is not being modified or altered.

Typical projects include, but are not limited to:

Interior building demolition ("strip outs") involving only the removal of interior walls, partitions, interior trim, cabinetry, doors, flooring and related construction materials;

Converting a room from one use to another, such as a bedroom to a study, or a garage to a family room;

Enlarging or reconfiguring a room by removing or adding an interior wall;

Upgrading a kitchen or bathroom;

Adding structures such as a wooden deck to an existing building, screening a porch, installing a wood patio cover, or assembling sheet metal tool or garden sheds.

Contractors subject to this classification use a variety of dimensional lumber and wood products, light weight metal studs and plastic and fiber reinforced boards, metal fasteners (nails, screws and bolts), and metal reinforcing or support straps such as joist hangers and post brackets.

This classification includes:

Framing of wood structures with light weight metal studs.

Installation of earthquake tie downs on residential buildings.

Specialty service providers or contractors engaged in providing general repair services or performing remodeling projects on buildings and structures.

Contractors who alter, remodel or repair existing structures and have opted to report their construction activities under this single subclassification 0516-00 are not to be assigned any other construction classification with the exception of roof work or roofing which is to be reported separately in classification 0507-05.

Special note: Businesses assigned to this classification are distinguishable from those assigned to classification 0516-02, in that 0516-02 requires each phase of construction to be reported separately in the appropriate construction classification(s).

Contractors that build new wood structural additions as part of a remodeling contract must also report each phase separately. They must use classification 0510-00 to report the new framing. All other phases of the construction must be reported separately in the appropriate classification(s) as noted in the text of classification 0516-02.

Contractors that build new structural additions and also repair and remodel existing structures will be assigned both 0510-00 and 0516-02 in addition to any other appropriate classification. 0516-00 will not be assigned to these employers.

Subclassifications 0516-00 and 0516-02 cannot be active on an account at the same time.

Applies to establishments engaged in the manufacture of products by die casting. Die casting is a manufacturing process for producing accurately((-))dimensioned, sharply((-))defined metal products which are referred to as "die castings." "Dies" are the steel molds used to mass produce the product. The process begins when ingots of various metal alloys are melted in die casting machines. The machine forces the metal into the die under hydraulic or pneumatic pressure. The casting quickly solidifies in the die, and is automatically ejected by the machine, and the cycle starts again. The castings are cleaned by grinding or sanding, which also removes any excess metal "flash." Many die casting manufacturers maintain their own machine shop for making the dies. Die making, when done as a part of die casting operations, is included within the scope of this classification.

Applies to establishments engaged in heat treating metal. The heat treating process may use computer numeric controlled (CNC) ovens or furnaces. The oven may heat up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit and a furnace may heat up to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. The metal(s) is placed on a platform; the platform is hydraulically moved into the first chamber and the door is automatically closed. At this time, the oxygen is burned from the chamber. Then the second chamber door is opened and the metal enters the oven/furnace. Depending upon the specifications, the heat treating process usually takes six to sixteen hours. When the metal is finished in the heating chamber it returns automatically to the first chamber. Then the platform lowers and the metals are dipped into a cooling agent. Once the metals are cooled to room temperature the platform rises, the door opens, and the materials are removed. The process is essentially the same without using ((noncomputer)) computer numeric controlled (CNC) heat treating equipment except that, rather than being hydraulically operated, the machine operators move the metals through the system. Many establishments do not produce a product, but heat treat a variety of products to customer specifications.

5005-00 Logging and/or tree thinning - Mechanized operations

(to be assigned only by classification services staff)

((Applies to establishments engaged in mechanized logging or tree thinning operations. For purposes of this classification, mechanized logging is defined as the entire process of felling, removal (skidding), yarding, processing, delimbing, bucking and loading of trees/logs by machine. This classification can be used by a logging contractor only if the entire side is being logged using methods and equipment described in this rule. If any portion of the side is being logged by conventional methods the entire operation must be reported in classification 5001 - Logging, N.O.C. or 5005-01 Logging Machine Operators. For example, an employer that subcontracts to fell trees with a feller/buncher or processor but is not involved in the removal (skidding) of the trees, the processing (delimbing and bucking) of the trees and the loading of trees is excluded from classification 5005-00 and is to be reported in classification 5001 - Logging, N.O.C. or 5005-01 Logging Machine Operators. Any employer whose operation includes any manual felling, removal, processing, or loading of trees is excluded from classification 5005-00 and is to be reported in classification 5001 - Logging, N.O.C. Work contemplated by this classification includes the falling of trees with a machine such as a feller buncher or processor; skidding logs to the landing with use of a grapple skidder or forwarder; delimbing logs with a mechanized delimber such as a stroke delimber, processor, CTR or harvester; and loading logs onto log trucks with a mechanical loader or shovel. Equipment used by employers subject to this classification will consist of the following:

Feller/buncher - Used to fell trees and place felled trees into stacks (bunches) for removal to the log landing for further processing. The operator of this machine does not leave the cab of the machine in the performance of duties in the logging operation.

Processor - Used to fell trees, delimb them, buck tree to desired log length and stack the bunches for removal to the landing where they will be segregated by general grade and loaded onto log trucks. A processor is sometimes used at the landing to delimb trees and buck them to log length, especially when the trees are felled by a feller/buncher. The operator of this machine does not leave the cab of the machine in the performance of duties in the logging operation.

Grapple skidder - Is used to remove (ground skid) stacks (bunches) of felled trees from the woods to the landing. The industry refers to both the skidder and the bulldozers as a tractor. The two are distinguished from one another in that the skidder is a tire-driven tractor and the bulldozer is a track-driven tractor. A bulldozer equipped with a grapple is an acceptable piece of equipment to be used in the removal of trees. The operator of either the grapple skidder or bulldozer equipped with grapple does not leave the cab of the machine in the performance of duties in the logging operation.

Forwarder - Is used to remove logs as cut by a processor from the woods to an awaiting log truck or to be stacked in piles for a future pick up by a log truck. This is a small specialized tractor equipped with a self-loader and a log bunk. The operator of this machine does not leave the machine in the performance of duties in the logging operation.

Harvester - Is used at the landing of the logging side to delimb trees and buck trees to desired log length. This machine can also be used to load logs onto log trucks. The operator of this machine does not leave the cab of the machine in the performance of duties in the logging operation.

Loader - Is used at the landing to load logs onto log trucks. The operator of this machine does not leave the cab of the machine in the performance of duties in the logging operation.

This classification excludes log hauling which is to be reported separately in classification 5003, logging road construction which is to be reported separately in classification 6902, logging machine operators which are to be reported separately in classification 5005-01, and logging operations which are to be reported separately in classification 5001.

Special notes: If any portion of the logging contract is performed manually or by hand, the establishment does not qualify for this classification. If any portion of the logging contract is subcontracted out to another business and is performed manually or by hand, then none of the businesses involved in the logging contract will qualify for this classification and are to be reported separately in classification 5001 or 5005-01.

All equipment used by employers subject to this classification must meet WISHA guidelines for Roll Over Protection Standards (ROPS) and Falling Object Protection Standards (FOPS).
