OHIO NEEDS COAL COAL NEEDS YOU
Coal keeps Ohio's economy competitive. It is the backbone of the state's low-cost electric industry with close to 90% of Ohio's electricity generated from coal. Legislators and regulatory agencies who regulate the coal industry often do not understand how critical coal is to Ohio's economy. The Ohio Coal Association works with the state's elected and appointed officials to help them understand how important a vibrant coal industry is to Ohio's economic well being. We need your help to make our message heard.
Membership in the Ohio Coal Association is for “any individual, partnership, or corporation producing bituminous coal or other miner in Ohio.” Member dues are based on production from the proceeding year. The assessment structure, which has been in effect since 1975 is as follows:
- COAL - $.0175 per ton
- CLAY & SHALE - $.00625 per ton
- SAND, GRAVEL & LIMESTONE - $.00125 per ton
Workers Compensation Program
As a coal-producing member you can benefit from our group Workers’ Compensation program. This group program has saved our members hundreds of thousands of dollars of Workers’ Compensation feed. CompManagement, our group administrator, will analyze your group rating potential and provide you with a savings analysis which you may use to determine the value of joining the Ohio Coal Association’s group. They also provide representation at workers’ compensation hearing, and assistance with claims management, manual classification, overpayment of premiums and the like.
