Customer Question

I have documentation and pictures, from the OSHA standpoint is that a lawsuit?

No, it's not a lawsuit. Again, you don't have a lawsuit against the company right now. You have an OSHA complaint, and if anything is done, it will be OSHA fining the employer and correcting the behavior, but there isn't a lawsuit (meaning no potential of any award) for you.

You would have a lawsuit only if, following the OSHA complaint, the employer retaliates against you for filing it.

The OSHA complaint is just a means of stopping unsafe practices.
