Emergency crews were focusing on a conveyor belt, with a large blanket draped over a section.

A WorkSafe spokeswoman said the watchdog was investigating the incident.

“[The man] was reported to have been working with a conveyor belt when he was caught in the
belt,” she said.

“WorkSafe investigators examine the circumstances of incidents with a view to ensuring
compliance and preventing future incidents of a similar nature.”

In a statement, WA Salt said the death occurred in its packaging plant.

“All work on site has ceased to allow WorkSafe to carry out its investigation,” it read.

“This is a devastating day for everyone at WA Salt, and our thoughts are with the deceased’s friends, family and colleagues at this extremely difficult time.
