Part 16 Noise

Section 220 Results recorded

Written measurement results must include the date of the measurement, the workers or occupations evaluated, the type of measuring equipment used, the sound level readings measured and the work location evaluated. For quality control purposes, the measuring equipment should be uniquely identified by number or other appropriate designation. A worker affected by noise at the workplace must be able to access a copy of the measurements on request. The employer must also make measurement results available to an officer on request. As long as the employer continues to operate within Alberta, a copy of the measurements must be kept on file at the employer’s premises.
