In Israel, you can legally obtain a safety-first walkers certificate for yourself and up to two others at a fee of 5,000 shekels (about US$40).
There are also safety-standards certificates for other professions and occupational safety badges (OSBs).
However, the latter are not accepted as proof of being a safety walker in Israel.
“I have no ID, no insurance,” said one woman who asked to be identified only as Maria, an insurance adjuster.
“It’s all nonsense.”
Maria is one of several women who are worried that the new rules could affect them.
According to a new report by the Israeli NGO Netanel, women are still not required to carry a safety card or a safety certificate to carry out their jobs.
A number of women have filed complaints with the Israel Occupational Safety and Health Administration (IOHAS), and have not received any response.
According the Netanels report, the Israeli ministry of justice has not received complaints regarding the requirement for a safety officer’s ID.
The government, however, has taken steps to change the laws and make it easier for women to obtain licenses.
The government said last year that the licenses would be available for all female applicants, regardless of their gender.
But a new law that was passed in February allows male applicants to get a safety clearance even if they are female, and requires a separate ID for women applicants.
The new law also gives women the right to carry firearms and the right of self-defense in any case.
“We will continue to challenge the new laws,” said Nadia Abu Shams, a lawyer with NetanEL, which advocates for women’s rights in Israel and abroad.
“The police will not change the rules on women’s safety.
This law is simply a pretext for the police to do so.”
