Coal combustion product (CCP) safety data sheet guidance document

Published by:
American Coal Ash Association (ACAA)

This document and its appendices are aimed at aiding ACAA member companies and members of the coal ash beneficial use community in the development of Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) for their Coal Combustion Products (CCPs). The CCPs considered include fly ash, bottom ash, circulating fluidized bed (CFB) fly ash, and CFB bed ash. Another major CCP, flue gas desulfurization (FGD) gypsum, is covered by a companion document. Companies that produce CCPs need SDSs compliant to new OSHA specifications. OSHA has updated its standards for hazard communication to be consistent with the United Nations Global Harmonized System, with the ultimate goal of accurately and consistently representing the hazards associated with product uses.
