The Children's Burns Trust provides resources on prevention in their Learning Zone.  They also provide a Burns Database which can produce a report on burn injuries in your area.

The NHS Burns and Scalds website provides information on burns prevention in the kitchen, bathroom, throughout the house, hot drinks and sunburn.
