A man has been charged with manslaughter following an investigation into a fatal workplace incident at St Marys last year.

Shortly after 12.30pm on Monday 1 February 2021, emergency services were called to a business on Links Road, following reports a man had been pinned between a truck and forklift.

Officers from Nepean Police Area Command attended along with NSW Ambulance paramedics.

The man – then aged 40 – died at the scene.

Detectives attached to Nepean Police Area Command established Strike Force Brabyn to investigate the incident.

Following extensive inquiries, investigators issued a 59-year-old man a court attendance notice for the offence of manslaughter.

Police will allege in court that the man was operating the forklift prior to the incident.

He is due to appear at Penrith Local Court today (Tuesday 12 July 2022).
