I am in my first trimester and haven't told my employers yet.

When I walked into the building today it smelt of paint. Apparently over the weekend they painted some offices on the ground floor. I am on the first floor but the paint smell is still very strong in the corridor outside my office. I have my windows open, the door to the corridor shut and have opened all 5 windows down the corridor.

I know that paint fumes aren't good so am worried.

It depends on whether its solvent based or water based. Water based is fine-my husband has used all
water based in our house. As long as the office is ventilated it should be ok but I'd ask what they've used.
