Since then, a range of Illawarra/South Coast companies have received awards recognising excellence in safety practices. The awards are presented each year at the Illawarra Industry Dinner and the achievements of the companies are highlighted. The Awards have been sponsored and over the last 4 years The Seta Foundation has been a major sponsor.
