Item 8.01
Other Events.

On December 6, 2011, Vulcan Materials Company received a 107(a) Imminent Danger Order at its Greystone Sand & Gravel facility located in Greene County, Tennessee.  The Imminent Danger Order was issued to Vulcan because  a customer truck driver was standing in the back of his dump truck on top of the material  leveling the load with a shovel.  According to MSHA, the customer truck driver was exposed to a fall hazard of 10 to 15 feet to the ground below.  Despite posted warning signs prohibiting this practice, MSHA issued the order to Vulcan rather than to the trucking company.



Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant had duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
