Wiring engine to shut down?

I have eight f350 6.0,s. I run tongs on oil well rigs and have been for over 25 years. For safety purposes some company's want a switch to shut down the truck while we're up on the rig floor in case something go's wrong. Any ideas on how to do this?

You could install a main disconnect like they use on drag cars.

I believe what your looking for is called a rig saver, it closes off your trucks intake so it can't "run away" so to speak. Its just a valve that you install on the intake and they come with a switch to put in the cab. Flip the switch, the valve closes and the engine shuts down because it doesn't get any air. Hope this helps a bit.

It needs to be operated from the rig floor away from the truck. Could this be done?

Does it need to be shut down because it's running on lease, and incase of taking a hit of hydrocarbons they don't want the engine to keep running?

Check with your local utility. They're mechanics can probably help in that department. We have a device on our aerial devices (bucket trucks) which works off of fibre optics so we can stop and start our rigs while working alloft. It has to be dielectric in our case so we don't get electrocuted LOL. I'm off for 6 weeks otherwise I'd get a contact for you.
