Do all school kitchens have to have an emergency stop system for the power?
If so which standards or regulations is it in?

Building Bulletin 100 suggests that school kitchens are "Places of special fire hazard" - whilst that relates to the use of the space, it's not uncommon for the EPO on the gas system to also act on the power systems.

BB 100 also suggest that fuel sources in "Places of special fire hazard" should be capable of being quickly isolated - so if you consider electricity as a fuel source, then the approach of the gas proving system with EPO which also acts on process power coupled with catering extract suppression as the best practice guidance
