Two men believed to be in their 30s or 40s are trapped in a confined space.

"It is my belief that the arm inside the Value-Added Tax has caused the men to become trapped", he said.

Paramedics, NSW Fire & Rescue and Police Rescue are on the scene at Chisolm Road.

It is understood the man had become trapped "by compression".

'There was still ink on the floor of the Value-Added Tax, which hampered rescue efforts and treatment, ' he told Daily Mail Australia. 'It's extremely hot inside the Value-Added Tax'.

'Very limited personnel have been able to get inside'.

A complex rescue operation is now underway to free the other two men, believed to be seriously injured.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Paul Turner said the man described the man's death as a tragedy.

One ot the men was freed shortly after 11am, while a third worker was extricated earlier and taken to Westmead Hospital with serious leg injuries.

Paramedics, NSW Fire & Rescue and Police Rescue are on the scene.

Ambulance parademics at the scene told reporters the injuries were likely to have been caused by falling into the Value-Added Tax instead of the chemicals inside.
