You should read your own link, it’s voluntary.
“Sec. 406.004. EMPLOYER NOTICE TO DIVISION. (a) An employer who does not obtain workers' compensation insurance coverage shall notify the division in writing, in the time and as prescribed by commissioner rule, that the employer elects not to obtain coverage.”

Thanks for all the very helpful comments.
The company IS going to cover it they told me yesterday.
(I do see the potential issues that could have existed however, thanks again!)

Wow what a weird event. The first day?
I hope they don't hold that against you.

You are eligible to get the compensation against that as you get injured under their premises.

Employees must be covered as soon as they begin their first day of work. Ohio law requires employers to obtain workers’ compensation insurance for all employees. Ohio employers are either state fund or self-insured. Statefund employers pay an insurance premium to BWC. The bureau then pays compensation benefits directly to you. Within 28 days from the date your initial claim for benefits is filed, BWC will decide to allow or deny it. By responding to any inquiries from your MCO or BWC, you will quicken the decision-making process and the receipt of benefits. If you or your employer disagrees with our decision, either party can file an appeal with the IC within 14 days.
