PhraseologyConcrete or Cement Work – Floors, Driveways, Yards or Sidewalks – All Operations to Completion & Drivers
Not available for division of payroll with Code 5222 “Concrete Construction in Connection with Bridges or Culverts – All Operations to Completion.”
Code 5221 applies to employers engaged in any type of paving or repaving involving flat work with cement or concrete, such as driveways, floors, yards, sidewalks, and parking lots. The employer will grade and level the surface and will then place down foundation forms to border in cement. Wire mesh or rebar is placed in the forms and cement or concrete is poured which is later troweled. After the cement dries the forms are removed.
This classification also applies to the use of asphalt to pave parking lots and courts. The asphalt is applied to the ground and the employer then spreads the asphalt with a rake. A roller machine is used to compress the asphalt. The painting of traffic lines in parking lots after the paving or repaving is completed by the same contractor is inclusive under this classification.
