    Abstract

    Fast jet aircrew (FJA) commonly suffer from musculoskeletal (MSK) complaints, particularly neck and back pain, which reduce performance and operational capability. Within the current FJA literature, there is variability in definitions used to discriminate recordable MSK complaints or injuries, and inconsistency as to what domains should be considered when determining overall severity. The objective was to develop an appropriate tool that could be used for the monitoring and surveillance of MSK complaints among FJA.
