What is the VSP and how does it effect your operation?
The vessel sanitation program was introduced in the late 70's as a result of regular outbreaks of contagious diseases amongst passengers and crew. The CDC, Shipsan and national governmental health agencies provide regulatory guidelines to protect both passengers and crew. Inspectors conduct pre-planned or unannounced visits to vessels arriving in ports worldwide. The inspections include technical operation such as safe drinking water, air conditioning, food service equipment and facilities, they then visit each department on vessels that provide a service to passengers to ensure that food is safe, accommodations are maintained. Inspection of medical facilities is of major importance in-regards to disease control and prevention. The ships management and crew are questioned on their knowledge as well as application of their requirements.
On the conclusion of inspections, vessels that maintain a high standards are given a 'pass' and permitted to continue their operation. Those vessels that fall below standards will 'fail' and be re-inspected. Failures that involve the passengers and crew wellbeing being compromised may receive a recommendation of 'No Sail' resulting in adverse publicity, lack of consumer confidence, loss of onboard and excursion revenues.
Critical deficiencies include drinking water not being chlorinated to a safe level, refrigeration and cooking equipment being inoperable, bad record keeping, practices and procedures by the ships crew that does not promote a health environment.
