Our Services


Salus Technical was founded by David Jamieson in 2015. A Principal Technical Safety Engineer, David’s frontline experience of working with operators has equipped him with an effective blend of the technical expertise and practical knowledge to help people understand and manage their risk.

David’s Masters degree in Aeronautical Engineering took him into the exhilarating world of Formula 1, where he joined the Aerodynamics department of Red Bull Racing as a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Engineer. Is it a coincidence that Red Bull Racing won the Championship both seasons David worked for them?!

In 2011 David moved to Aberdeen and transferred his valuable skill-set to the oil and gas sector, where he worked as a Technical Safety Consultant, carrying out fire and explosion modelling.

Since launching Salus Technical in 2015, the firm has supported oil and gas operators with technical safety engineering on a variety of brownfield, greenfield and decommissioning projects. Recently, David supported Equinor as their Technical Safety Technical Authority for the UK, with responsibilities in training, operational risk assessment, performance standards and supporting HSE inspections.
