To prevent scalds you should;
- Put your kettles in a safe place where no one can bump it or that it won't fall on somebody.
- Use mugs that are spill proof.
- Fix kettle cords properly so children won't play with it and that the hot water in it won't be spilled.
- When drinking hot drinks or eating hot food, make sure to blow on them first for them to cool down a little bit.

What can we do to prevent a drop of a candle?

To prevent burns from a candle, make sure that you use candles that are encased in a glass jar. This will prevent the wax from melting onto your fingers when you move the candle. Make sure to keep the candle out of reach of children so they can't burn themselves or someone else. Finally, do not leave the candle unattended; this could cause excess melted wax to spill from the sides and burn someone.
