In brief: Reduce exposure
We wish as a community we had a better answer to this question.
One thing we do know about leukemia is that its incidence is increased after exposure to radiation (e.g. Chernobyl) and some chemotherapy agents.

In brief: Moderation
It sounds cliche but exposures to things which cause cancer are usually a lifetime exposure issue as compared to a one time occurrence.
This is why occupational (longterm) exposure to certain carcinogens or environmental agents (smoking) can increase the risk.
