A young Riverland man has died in a workplace accident that occurred in the regional town of Monash on Tuesday afternoon.

Police and emergency services were called to a business on Jury road just before 3.30pm, following reports that a steel tank had fallen off a gantry crane onto a worker.

A 27-year-old Renmark man died at the scene and SA Police said they will prepare a report for the Coroner.

Safe Work SA attended the site yesterday afternoon and said it will not release further information while investigations into the incident are ongoing.
