Excellent answer - thank you - I also noted the responses giving hit button but as this is for specifications, it is important I think to specify mushroom type

red hit button


Explanation:
The general expression I've always seen (mainly military applications) is just "hit button". When you first mention the device in your text, you might add adjectives like "red", "emergency", "shutdown" but afterward, no need for that. Every user knows that if it's a hit button, it's for an emergency; if it's an emergency, it's red; and there's only one thing to do in an emergency, which is to shut the system down. Palm buttons could, of course, be used for other things than shutting down a machine in an emergency. But in that case they won't be red.

only to confirm hit-button


Explanation:
Only to confirm Sweeney's (hope I got the name right as I hit propose an answer too fast).
I have indeed always seem on such machines emergency hit button.
It is a mushroom type button or plunger but it's actual name in terms of security wording is hit button. Probably so that there is no confusion when under fire (I mean in case of an emergency).
Good luck!
