Item 1.04 Mine Safety


On May 21, 2013, Vulcan Materials Company (the “Company”) received an imminent danger order issued by the Mine Safety and Health Administration (“MSHA”) under section 107(a) of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 at our Weatherford Quarry located in Weatherford, Texas. The order was issued when a mechanic was observed standing on a 10 inch ledge behind the cab of the Cat 775 haul truck. The mechanic was approximately 8 feet from the ground and was not wearing fall protection. The employee was removed from the elevated area and was instructed on proper fall protection. No injuries occurred from this incident.
