Monthly Safety Scenario: Poor stability caused man overboard

"It was late autumn and the vessel had loaded timber logs. A large portion of the logs was loaded on deck.

As the vessel was approaching the port, one of the ABs went forward to prepare for arrival. At the same time as the vessel altered course, a heavy gust of wind hit the side of it and caused the vessel to list almost 20° which caused the deck cargo to shift. At the same time the AB on the bow fell into the water because of the excessive list. He wasn’t wearing a life jacket. The AB could be seen holding on to some logs."
