reasonably safe


reasonably safe
Safe according to the usages, habits, and ordinary risks of the business. A master performs his duty when he furnishes those appliances of ordinary character and reasonable safety, and the former is the test of the latter; for, in regard to the style of implement or nature of the mode of performance of any work, "reasonably safe" is to be tested by the foregoing definition. Chrismer v Bell Tel. Co. 194 Mo 189, 92 SW 378.
