  1. Cannery business – canning of a variety of products such as fruits, vegetables, sauerkraut, fish and moist pet foods.  Includes cooking.  Refer to Code 2111 “Cannery – NOC.”

Note:

Shall not be assigned to an employer engaged in operations described by another  classification unless the operations subject to Code 4710 are conducted as a separate and distinct business. 

Description

Code 4710 applies to employers engaged in manufacturing candles, and other wax products such as wax chalk and sealing wax. Beeswax, paraffin, stearin, wicks and aniline colors are received from others. The wax is heated in steam-jacketed vessels or gas heated kettles into which wicks are dipped by use of dipping equipment which can be activated manually or automatically. When the candles attain the desired size and shape and have cooled, they are taken from the dipping cycle. After cutting the wicks, the candles are put into self-fitting end molds to shape the base. Color is then laminated into the candles by dipping operation. After cooling they are inspected, wrapped and packaged. Candles may also be manufactured in molds or hand decorated.

This classification also applies to employers engaged in manufacturing crayons. For the manufacturing of crayons, wax and pigments are mixed inside of heated vessels. The mixture is then poured or pumped into molds that are shaped in the form of crayons. After the cooling period is completed, labels are attached to the crayons. The crayons are then inspected, boxed and packed for shipment.

Candy, Chocolate or Cocoa Mfg.

Note:

Description

Code 2041 applies to employers engaged in, but not limited to, manufacturing candy bars, chocolate bars, chewing gum, glaceed fruit, jellybeans, lollipops, licorice, breath mints, taffy, and other confections.  Includes manufacturing from cocoa beans.  The processes of manufacturing products included under this classification may be automated or manually performed.

The processing of cocoa beans includes cleaning and roasting of the cocoa beans.   Once the roasted beans are cooled, they crack open and the nibs (inner portions) are separated from the shells.  Some manufacturers will pack the shells and sell them as a by-product.  The nibs are blended and milled which converts them into a coarse liquor.  This chocolate liquor is pumped through a hydraulic press which extracts the fat, (cocoa butter) leaving a caked residue.  The cakes are broken down, pulverized to a fine powder, and the powder is sifted, cooled and packed.

The chocolate manufacturing process begins the same as the cocoa manufacturing process up to the point where the nibs are converted into a coarse liquor.  At this point, the cocoa liquor is combined with powdered sugar or artificial sweeteners, milk or milk powder, cocoa butter and flavorings.  All ingredients are mixed forming a paste.  The paste is refined and tempered until it reaches the desired liquid consistency.  This chocolate liquid is then pumped into forms or molds and cooled, forming ten-pound cakes.  The cakes are removed from the molds, wrapped and packed.  These are usually sold to confectionery manufacturers or bakeries for use in their own operations.

Also included under this classification are employers that are engaged in manufacturing candy and confections whether from chocolate or sugar, artificial sweeteners, corn syrup, extracts, flavorings, fruits, nuts, gelatin or other ingredients. 

Manufacturing chewing gum, gum balls, gum with liquid centers, different shapes and sizes of gum are also included under this classification.

Cannery – NOC

Note:

Code 2111 and Code 2114 “Oyster Processing” shall not be assigned to the same risk unless the operations described by these classifications are conducted as separate and distinct businesses.

Description

Code 2111 applies to employers engaged in canning a variety of products, primarily fresh vegetables and fruit.  The preliminary operations involve the cleaning and otherwise preparation of the produce for canning by washing, grading, and blanching.  Some produce require peeling, slicing or coring.  Some require preheating or softening but, for the most part, the cooking takes place after the cans are sealed, usually by machine.  Cans are then placed in retorts until properly heated or cooked.  They are then washed, cooled, labeled, stored, or shipped.  The canning of dog and/or cat food (wet process) is covered by this classification as well as the freezing of vegetables where the preparatory operations are the same as canning except vegetables are packaged and frozen rather than canned.  The packaging of aerosol products, compounds into plastic containers and the canning of motor oil and turpentine by contractors also fall within the scope of this classification.

Car Mfg. – Railroad & Drivers

Note:

Description

Code 3881 applies to employers engaged in manufacturing, repairing, rebuilding or dismantling railroad cars.  The railroad cars manufactured may be passenger type cars, steel tank cars or gondola cars.

Operations contemplated by this classification include the manufacturing of steel frames for the car bodies which may involve work such as shearing, punching, pressing, forming and fabricating under-frames or chassis and steel plate work such as cutting, fitting, bolting, riveting or welding, and machining parts such as turning axels, boring wheels, drilling and assembly of car fittings, etc. 
 
The operations will differ somewhat between manufacturing railcars and renovating them.  When an employer receives a railcar to be refurbished, they will jack up the car on stands to be worked upon.  In some cases, it is not necessary for the employer to work under the railcar.  The employer will then proceed to dismantle the cars by removing old seats, fixtures, doors, windows, controls, heating and cooling units, handrails, furniture, etc.  After the employer has removed the required fixtures and furnishings, the employer will then install new electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling systems.  The employer will add the necessary lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures and control panels with the systems being wired and pipe connections made.

The interior of the railcar is finished by adding seats, handrails, windows, doors, weather-stripping and moldings.  For sleeper cars, pre-made fiberglass sections are inserted into the body of the railcar, slid in place and secured.  For dining cars, the employer will add the required tables, chairs and bars.  The employer will then secure the refurbished truck and wheel assemblies to the underside of the railcar and if required, electric traction motors are added.  The railcar is then taken to the paint area in which the railcar is spray painted, dried and decals added.  The finished railcar is taken to a test building in which the railcar is sprayed with water to test for leaks.  The completed railcar is inspected, loaded onto common carrier trucks for return to the customer or are taken by rail back to the customer.

Note:

Includes corrugating or laminating of paper.

Code 4244 and Code 4250 “Paper Coating” shall not be assigned to the same risk unless the operations described by these classifications are conducted as separate and distinct businesses.

Description

Code 4244 applies to employers engaged in manufacturing corrugated or fiberboard barrels, boxes, cartons, shipping drums and containers made from corrugated cardboard or fiberboard.

In manufacturing corrugated cardboard used for the containers, heavy paper stock is fed into a corrugating machine which forms the corrugation “ripples.”  An outer facing sheet layer is then glued to one or both sides.  Fiberboard containers do not have a corrugated center section because they are made from paper stock which is laminated by gluing the flat paper sheets in successive layers until the required thickness is obtained.

Some employers may purchase the cardboard or fiberboard stock already corrugated or laminated.  The purchased corrugated or fiberboard material is cut to size, slit or slotted, scored and creased and then folded and taped or stapled.  The completed boxes are inspected and may be shipped to the employer’s customers in a flat form in bundles or in a set-up or fully assembled shape.

Manufacturing fiberboard drums, the material is wound around tubes in the required number of thicknesses or laminations.  The glue is applied in the winding process and the formed tubular stock is cut to size and fitted with tops and bottoms cut from fiberboard sheet stock.  The top and bottom edges of the drums may be fitted with metal rims.
