I build control room software and simulations for oil rigs. I've seen some crazy ergonomic nonsense at times, but not like these wheel switches. The oil rig equivalent of a kill switch is called a TPS (Total Platform Shutdown). It kills everything from wells all the way to export lines, generators, shoves the gas up the flare. The only thing that stays running is a UPS for essential 'life support' systems. You'd never dream having the TPS button in a place it could accidentally be hit. A software TPS button would require a confirmation, whilst a hardware one would be a double action (lift and push).

I don't understand these steering wheels, and having now seen the Bentley one, I'm amazed this isn't more common.
