The body was discovered on Toorak Road in Melbourne around 7:00pm. WorkSafe is investigating the cause of the death but the man was carrying out electrical work at the time which probably played a part in his death.

Reports say the man was in his twenties and was working alone on the roof.

A police report is being prepared for the coroner.

Another worker has been injured following a fall at a work site in Central West NSW.

The man was carrying out work on the roof of a Mudgee restaurant when he slipped and fell to the concrete floor below.
