The purpose of this study is to analyze safety conditions during excavation services, seeking to identify risks to employees in situations of ignorance or use of safety measures. Therefore, this study was conducted through a qualitative study, exploratory and descriptive, seeking to diagnose the main impacts of the adequacy of NR-8, NR-12 and NR-18 in a construction site in Manaus-AM. The results showed lack of signaling on the excavation perimeter, no use of personal protective equipment and residue around the excavation perimeter. The nonconformities found imply exposure of the employee to situations of imminent risk, compromising their safety and health. Training proposals to raise awareness of the importance of safety standards for the execution of activities can contribute to a safer scenario regarding working conditions.
