Where are the decibel police?

A lot of hearing damage is happening in fitness classes nowadays,
as has happened and continues to happen at dances, etc.

What's the defense against this? Clubs that are concerned about
the health of their clientele certainly shouldn't be destroying
it!

Is it difficult and expensive to check decibels? An ordinary
citizen feels like the lone whiner if s/he complains about this.
I lost a lot of hearing in the army 45 years ago, and live with
annoying tinnitis, perhaps that's why these high volume situations
bug me more than others present...

Where are the hearing police when we need them? Who's responsible
outside the workplace for this destruction?
