INVESTIGATORS are waiting on a coroner's report into what caused the death of a 35-year-old man who was working at a private property in Golden Point on Monday.
The man was understood to be working on an air conditioner unit at a Bond Street property when he was found unresponsive on Monday morning.
WorkSafe confirmed on Tuesday morning they are investigating the circumstances of the man's death and were waiting on a report to be finalised.
It has not yet been confirmed whether the death was caused by an accident or a medical episode.
If the man is deemed to have died from a work place accident, he will be the 25th Victorian to lose their life at work this year, which would be one more than the entire 2019.
And the Ballarat region has been far from immune with six deaths, including a truck driver who died in Delacombe in January this year.
The man's death comes a little over a month before new workplace safety laws come into place in Victoria.
New laws which passed Victoria's parliament in November last year will become law on July 1. It means employers who are deemed responsible for the death of a worker could face up to 20 years jail and fines in excess of $16 million.
The law brings the resources sector into line with every other industry, but with higher financial penalties.
In that state, eight men have lost their lives in the past two years and a recent underground gas explosion that left four men in a critical condition in hospital and a fifth man injured.
