AN Australian man believed to be in his 50s has been killed in a workplace accident in the occupied Golan Heights in Israel.

The man was an employee of the global oil and gas drilling company Viking Services, which was contracted to conduct oil well tests in the region.

A spokesman for the company told the ABC that the man was fatally injured while moving a mobile well servicing rig and that a full investigation into the incident would be carried out.

The Jerusalem Post reported that the man was injured around 10:30am (local time) on Sunday while disassembling equipment for well tests at the Ness-2 site, and later died from his injuries.
