We have OSB that says it doesn't use urea formaldehyde, but it still has a strong odor. I am wondering if it is safe?

We have some OSB from LP Products in TX. I looked up on the internet to see if it has formaldehyde, and their website says it uses only 'safe resins'. It has a strong odor, and I don't know if it is safe. We got it to put on our kids bunkbeds, as support for the mattresses. I want to make sure the resins aren't harmful, but I don't know exactly what they are. I am also wondering if I should use some type of no VOC paint or sealer on it, and if that would help to seal in or cover anything. Thanks so much!!!!
