This manuscript provides a Commentary on a paper published in the current issue of Ear and Hearing and the companion paper published in the International Journal of Audiology (Soli et al. 2018a, 2018b). These papers report background, rationale, and results of a novel modeling approach to assess “auditory fitness for duty” or an individual’s ability to perform hearing-critical tasks related to their job, based on their likelihood of effective speech communication in the listening environment in which the task is performed.
