The obvious answer is to not let your child or pet play, sleep, eat near the place where the paint is used. Still, when such an option is impossible, keep a close eye on their activities to prevent possible contact with chemicals.
If somehow your child or pet got paint on their skin or hair (fur), wash the paint off with the tap water. Watch out the skin for the allergic reaction!
If the paint got in the eyes or mouth, immediately wash it out with clean water and go to the doctor with the data sheet, which usually comes together with paint. If you see the abnormal reaction on paint (vomiting, fainting, etc.) call the ambulance in short order.
Forewarned is forearmed – knowing about the harm the paint can cause you can do everything required to prevent the negative effects.
