Aurata Safety collaborates with businesses across Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Australia-wide to assess their work practices and tailor training and safety solutions that achieve regulatory compliance whilst enhancing their overall safety culture. We help businesses gain clarity around exactly what is required from a regulatory standpoint but also what is considered best practice for their specific industry. Our services enable our clients to conduct their operations safely and efficiently whilst also ensuring they’ve implemented the various controls, processes and risk mitigation strategies that are often a necessary requirement when bidding for larger contracts or responding to tender requests.
Aurata Safety was established with the vision to improve intraoperability between the public and private sectors by anticipating and managing emergencies and crises in workplaces across Australia. Partnerships are at the core of all Aurata’s endeavours. We collaborate with clients to assess and mitigate risk, develop effective controls and build business resilience to achieve desired health and safety outcomes. At Aurata Safety, we focus on cutting through the jargon, identifying which Legislation is relevant to clients and recommending efficient and cost-effective measures to deliver safer work practices and environments. Our multidisciplinary team achieves this in a way that is professional, approachable and inclusive for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
Aurata Safety was founded in Perth by Co-Directors Claire Wears and Charmaine Dalton. Claire and Charmaine take a personalised, hands-on approach to operations; liaising directly with clients to assess their requirements and tailoring safety and emergency management services to meet their needs. Claire and Charmaine are supported by an experienced, Australia-wide team of healthcare, rescue, emergency management, risk assessment and safety training professionals. At Aurata Safety, our multidisciplinary teams possess high-level expertise and share our commitment to delivering personalised, quality-driven services to our clients.
Claire began her career working in the insurance industry after having completed a Commerce Degree. Following several years in insurance, Claire opted for a major career change and began working for St John Ambulance in Perth, during which time she completed her Bachelor of Science (Paramedicine). She is currently completing her Graduate Certificate in Disaster & Emergency Management and holds membership with the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology.
After several years working as a Paramedic, Claire took on a series of FIFO Emergency Service Officer roles on Western Australia’s mine sites. It was during these years that Claire began to deepen her understanding of risk and the pivotal role safety measures play in mitigating exposure to it. Claire then decided to consolidate her skills gained whilst working across prehospital care, emergency response, safety and risk mitigation to co-found Talis Group, a Perth organisation specialising in industrial safety services.
Claire spent five years playing an instrumental role growing the business and servicing clients across the defence, maritime, construction and mining industries before parting ways with Talis Group to found Aurata Safety with one of her team members, Charmaine. In addition to her work in safety consulting and training, Claire is also a sessional lecturer in Paramedical Science at Edith Cowan University.
Charmaine Dalton is co-founder of Aurata Safety which partners with Australian businesses to grow their personal and business resilience. Charmaine brings with her two decades of experience in healthcare and emergency services from the Government sector, including extensive clinical governance, quality and safety expertise.
Charmaine has held various nursing and health management roles at hospital, district and international levels.

Charmaine’s healthcare career and emergency services career as an urban firefighter with Queensland Fire and Rescue Service, led her to the resource and maritime sectors where she translates her diverse emergency experience into real emergency management solutions. Charmaine is passionate about developing and testing emergency management plans and building the capabilities of others in these fields.
In addition to being a director of Aurata Safety, Charmaine gives back to her community as a radio operator for Marine Rescue, volunteer firefighter for Department Fire & Emergency Services (DFES) and WA Chapter Co-Lead for the Australasian Women in Emergencies (AWE) Network.
