A man has died and a second man has received serious burns after an incident understood to involve live electrical wires at a worksite in Sydney's west.

Emergency services were called to Regent Crescent, Moorebank, about 2pm to reports that a man had been electrocuted while working on the roof of a factory.

Inspector Andy Cullen of NSW Ambulance said that, when paramedics arrived, they found a total of five patients on the roof, one of whom was unconscious.

Tien Man -ho, who worked as a film music mixer, was renting the unit in an old building as a workshop, Apple Daily reports. Paramedics certified Tien dead on the spot. An autopsy is pending. Police said Tien might have been electrocuted by a malfunctioning electrical appliance that had come in contact

A man has been pronounced dead in hospital after he was electrocuted outside a commercial building in Richmond Hill on Thursday afternoon. One of the men was rushed to Mackenzie Health without vital signs but was pronounced dead a short time later, police say.

"Four of those patients were extricated in a timely manner," he said. "One of those was transported to hospital with lower leg burns in a serious but stable condition."

The other three were assessed by paramedics at the scene before being released, he said.

The fifth man, aged 24, was unable to be freed from the roof until the electricity to the building was turned off.

"It was a challenging situation to reach the final patient who was still up on the roof," Inspector Cullen said.

"We worked very closely with Fire and Rescue NSW and NSW Police to formulate a plan to make contact with that patient."

Eventually, he said, Fire and Rescue NSW and special operations paramedics "made contact with that patient, and the patient was found to be unfortunately deceased".

Police are now investigating the circumstances led to the incident. A crime scene has been established, and Work Cover NSW officers are assisting with inquiries.

Inspector Cullen said he had been told the patient "was holding some kind of metal pole in his hand, and he’s turned and inadvertently touched some live wires adjacent to the rear of the building".

A report will be prepared for the coroner.

More to come.
