What does the colour for an area emergency stop pushbutton need to be?

The colour for an area stop pushbutton is not currently specified in any harmonised standard. The colouring of black on a yellow background developed
from the requirement that an emergency stop pushbutton (in the context of EN ISO 13850) had to be strictly red on a yellow background. If the pushbutton does not act in this way, then another colour must be used. That is how black on a yellow background became established throughout industry.
