David Rawlins and Eamonn Osborne were both hurt when they were engulfed in a fireball after cutting through a 1,000 volt cable while working for Birmingham-based firm RVB Investments in August last year.
The pair had been instructed by their manager Clifford Leigh to find an underground water leak at the firm's disused depot in Telford by digging outside the premises.
However, after getting around 40 centimetres into the ground, they struck the live cable and therefore needed to be airlifted to hospital due to the severity of the burns on their faces, hands and arms.
RVB Investments and Mr Leigh have now admitted breaching health and safety regulations, meaning the workers may opt to pursue a civil damages claim.
This comes after Richard Baisley suffered serious burns to his body when he hit an underground cable while working for Kim Barker Construction.
