[graphic]

To qualify the liability of railroad companies for injuries to their employes.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Ohio:
SECTION I. Every railroad company operating any
railroad which is in whole or in part within this state shall
be liable for all damages sustained by any of its employes
by reason of personal injury or death of such employe:
I. When such injury or death is caused by a defect
in any locomotive, engine, car, hand-car, rail, track, machin-
ery or appliance required by such company to be used by
its employes in and about the business of their employ-
ment, if such defect could have been discovered by reason-
able and proper care, tests or inspection; and proof of such
defect shall be presumptive evidence of knowledge thereof
on the part of such company; and any such employe of such
railroad company who may be injured or killed as a result
of any such defect, shall not be deemed to have assumed
the risk occasioned by such defect, although continuing in
the employment of such railroad company after knowledge
of such defect; nor shall continuance in employment after
such knowledge by any employe be deemed an act of con-
tributory negligence.
2. While any such employe is engaged in operating,
running, riding upon or switching passenger, freight or
other trains, engines or cars, and while engaged in the per-
formance of his duties as such employe, and when such
injury shall have been caused by the carelessness or negli-
gence of any other employe, officer or agent of such com-
pany, in the discharge of or for failure to discharge his
duties as such. -
SECTION 2. That in all actions hereafter brought
against any railroad company operating any railroad in
whole or in part within this state, for personal injury to
an employe or where such injuries have resulted in his
death, the fact that the employe may have been guilty of
contributory negligence, shall not bar a recovery where his
contributory negligence was slight and that of the employer
was greater in comparison. But the damages shall be dimin-
ished by the jury in proportion to the amount of negli-
gence attributable to such employe. All questions of neg-
ligence and contributory negligence shall be for the jury.
