The Mississippi Housing Institute will host a free seminar on OSHA basics.

It will be at 11 a.m. June 22 at Hancock Bank, 888 Howard Ave. in downtown Biloxi.

This course counts as two credit hours of continuing education.

The seminar will be taught by Courtney Bohannon, assistant area director of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, who will discuss standards, procedures and general health and safety information.
