EU-OSHA celebrates multilingualism to mark the European Day of Languages


Europe’s multilingualism represents a tool for achieving greater intercultural understanding and a key element in the rich cultural heritage of the continent. Therefore, every 26 September marks the European Day of Languages, an inititiative of the Council of Europe together with the European Commission.

Multilingualism is a cornerstone of EU-OSHA’s everyday work by spreading our messages as widely as possible. EU-OSHA’s multilingual Thesaurus of occupational safety and health (OSH) terminology or its glossaries on musculoskeletal disorders and dangerous substances contain working vocabulary and definitions for the most frequently used concepts in the fields in 25 languages.
