No, it may smell a bit if you don't scoop them out daily and keep them clean.Unless you are currently pregnant then it should not be a problem. Pregnant women should not handle cat litter in any way shape or form. It causes an illness called toxoplasmosis that is bad for the unborn baby.

not if you scrub the pans well and keep them free of stuff at least weekly.

It really depends most on two things. 1) keeping it clean and 2) the type of litter you use. Most litters have a lot of dust, and breathing that dust, in any room, over time can cause respiratory problems. I have asthma and I have to use a pine type of litter to keep the dust down. I used to have to dust at least once a day until I changed brands of litter. Ever notice the dust when you poor the litter? Well, we and the cats are breathing that in every time the cat uses the box. I hope this helps.
