Item 1.04. Mine Safety - Reporting of Shutdowns and Patterns of Violations.
On August 18, 2020, the U.S. Department of Labor Mine Safety and Health Administration (“MSHA”) issued Eastern Concrete Materials, Inc. (“Eastern”) an imminent danger order (the “Order”) under Section 107(a) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 at the Quinton TWP Pit mine in New Jersey. Eastern is a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S. Concrete Inc. (“U.S. Concrete”). The Order was issued by an MSHA inspector after the inspector observed that a third-party fuel vendor was not secured while working on the top of one of Eastern’s fuel trucks. The inspector deemed that the vendor was exposed to serious or fatal injuries due to the possibility of falling by not maintaining three points of contact, and the vendor alleged that he was not made aware of the requirement to be secured. There were no injuries, and the vendor withdrew from the top of the truck and was instructed not to return without fall protection. U.S. Concrete disagrees that an imminent danger existed and is considering its legal options to contest the Order including, but not limited to, further informal review with MSHA and litigation.
