Abstract: The principle aim of this dissertation is to gather 150 terms related to Occupational Health & Safety in the Agricultural Sector. Firstly, in English and then research was conducted in order to find or create the most appropriate Maltese equivalent for each term. These sectors differ from one another, yet the role OHS plays in such a working environment is essential because lives can be endangered if certain safety rules and regulations are not implemented and consequently followed. Both topics branch off into other sub-categories. Therefore in order to have a precise focal point throughout this research project, it was decided to model the terms on specific sub-categories/sectors. The sub-categories pertaining to OHS are: personal protective equipment, general OHS terms related to the agricultural sector, hazardous chemicals, hazardous machinery and occupational diseases. Whereas the sub-sectors related to the Maltese agricultural sector are: the animal husbandry, the crop production and the beekeeping sectors. All the target terms (TT) in Maltese that are gathered in this terminology adhere to the ISO 704 term formation principles issued by the International Standards Organization, which is the key document on which terminology research practice is based. Furthermore, apart from the terms listed in English i.e. the source language (SL) and in Maltese i.e. the target language (TL), this terminology also contains a bilingual definition and context for each term.
