mushroom shaped button/switch
Explanation:
In the last decade the majority of emergency off-switches/buttons that has been installed were in the shape of a mushroom. The reason for this approach is that such a button can be slapped from any angle, while the traditional off-switches, which were protected by a surrounding ring required to be pushed directly from the front. In an emergency situation it is important to be able to react fast and not have to worry about one's position while/before pushing the off-switch/button.

Bridge for external emergency off is missing.
