      Cement Mfg.

      Code 1701 applies to employers engaged in manufacturing cement, mortar, plaster, fiberglass insulation, rock wool, and similar products.

      This classification also applies to employers engaged in manufacturing mica goods made from mica and mica preparing.  Mica is a silicate mineral such as muscovite, the most common type of mica in the mica group which readily separates into thin, pliable leaves due to its crystalline structure. This classification includes preparing mica which involves separating the mica leaves from chunks of mica ore.  In addition, this classification includes forming these leaves into sheets.

      This classification also includes cutting mica sheets to size or into various shapes.  This material is most commonly used as insulation as it is heat resistant, primarily by industrial concerns such as but not limited to the electrical industry.     

      This classification is also applicable to cutting shapes from purchased mica sheets or leaves that have been split by others.

      Trucking – NOC – All Employees & Drivers

      It should be noted that there is an important distinction between Code 7219 and Code 7380 “Drivers, Chauffeurs, Messengers, and Their Helpers – NOC—Commercial.”  While both apply only if they are “Not Otherwise Classified,” Code 7219 applies to the transportation of goods not owned by the employer, whereas Code 7380 applies to the driving of vehicles and/or the transportation of goods owned by the employer. 


      Code 7219 applies to employers engaged in delivering general merchandise or other products owned by others such as fuel, oil or milk.  The employer may be under contract with other businesses to pick up their goods and deliver them to the destination designated by their customers or the employer may be available for immediate hire.

      Drivers and their helpers drive to designated areas to pick up and load the merchandise on their truck.  The distance of destination varies depending on pick up sites and destination sites.  Once the merchandise is on the truck, the driver will deliver the merchandise to the location designated by the customer.  Merchandise is removed from the truck by the driver and/or helper or it may be removed by others not employed by the employer at the delivery site.  This classification also includes trucking of explosives or ammunition.

Current and Archived Manuals
What is the Digital Library?
The Digital Library is a feature enhanced, database driven version of our Workers' Compensation Manuals, Plans and References. The conversion from text publications to database driven web applications is intended to benefit our Users, Members and Subscribers with faster, easier and more accurate information regarding the New York Workers Compensation rules, procedures and protocols. All of the information in prior PDF publications has been captured and retained; and in most cases this information has been enhanced either aesthetically and/or functionally.

What's New?
Noted changes to past procedures would include changing the page reference identification system from "page based" (e.g., R-1, R-50, R-70) to "paragraph based" (e.g., Rule 3 - Paragraph D). A new Revision History feature has been adapted in support of this new reference system. For instance, each Paragraph of each Rule now contains a complete history of revisions for that specific Paragraph while also retaining an archived history of prior versions of that Paragraph dating back to the Original Printing of the Manual. A listing of the latest revisions are available for the entire Manual by selecting the History icon at the top of the users screen.
