O&G Mixer Driver Wins National Safety Award

October 8, 2018

Ilir Alibali, a Concrete Mixer Driver with O&G Industries, was recently recognized by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) with their annual Safety Award.

Alibali received the award for saving a driver back in 2017.  The driver has driven his sedan through O&G’s Davenport Street Concrete Plant in Stamford and into the harbor.  Alibali dove into the water and pulled the despondent driver to safety.  Alibali stated: “With one hand I held the tire on the barge and with other I grabbed onto the guy and then pulled the guy out.  He was really lucky.” 

The award was presented at the 2018 NRMCA annual conference in National Harbor, Maryland.
