Continued good performance on environmental sanitation inspections and in most inspection categories during the implementation of changes to the Vessel Sanitation Program Operations Manual is likely attributable to a number of factors: The one-year transition period allowed for an adjustment to new requirements by food and water handlers, front-line managers, and the inspectors implementing those changes; inspections afforded an opportunity for inspectors to provide one-on-one training and more detailed reports of violations during the transition; and the frequency of training courses for the industry increased from three classes per year to five per year commencing in 2000.
