Worker dies in machine crush

A man has died after he was crushed while operating machinery at an Epping metal fabricator on Friday.


It is believed the 46-year-old was using a turret punch to perforate sheet metal when he became entrapped between the machine and a workbench.

WorkSafe is investigating.

The death brings the workplace fatality toll for 2021 to four, 14 fewer than at the same time last year.
