IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -- Officials at the Idaho National Laboratory say they are making changes concerning shipments of explosives after a report by the Department of Energy, Office of the Inspector General and Office of Audits and Inspections.
 
Officials tell the Post Register in a story published Thursday that a final recommendation is being made to mandate that explosives arrive for inspection in nonpeak hours.
 
Auditors visited the facility in October 2010 and recommended the change because of the potential danger a single incident posed.
 
INL spokesman Ethan Huffman says the site in 2011 received six explosives deliveries ranging from grams to pounds. He says the facility has never had an incident with deliveries of explosives.
