Eleven rail workers were taken to hospital for assessment and observation after their Arc Infrastructure (formerly Brookfield Rail) crew was impacted by a lightning strike while working near Kookynie, south of Leonora, on Saturday.
Arc Infrastructure said everyone on the team, which comprised eight labour hire contractors and three Arc Infrastructure employees, was expected to make a full recovery.
The lightning strike occurred at 8.35am on Saturday, and nine of the eleven workers were released from hospital by 8pm that night, the WA rail business said.
All eleven had been transported to Leonora Hospital after the incident, before two were then airlifted from Leonora to Kalgoorlie for assessment.
