Item 1.04. Mine Safety - Reporting of Shutdowns and Patterns of Violations.
On August 7, 2017, the U.S. Department of Labor Mine Safety and Health Administration ("MSHA") issued Heavy Materials, LLC an imminent danger order (the “Order”) under Section 107(a) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 at the Brookman Quarry mine in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Heavy Materials, LLC (“Heavy”) is a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S. Concrete Inc. (“U.S. Concrete”). The verbal Order was issued by an MSHA inspector after the inspector received a verbal complaint that employees were allegedly working at the highwall toe of the extraction area underneath loose material caused by previous blasting. The inspector deemed that the miners were exposed to serious or fatal injuries due to the possibility of loose material falling on top of them. There were no injuries, and Heavy took immediate corrective action. 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.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
U.S. CONCRETE, INC.
