CampusOptics puts information at your fingertips

Texas Woman’s University has recently introduced a new software to its ecosystem.

CampusOptics, designed specifically for institutions of higher education, is a cross-functional EH&S (environmental health and safety) platform that supports community requests, chemical inventories, and compliance inspections while also acting as a database to make essential safety information more accessible. These features — a few of which can be accessed without even signing in — aim to keep Pioneers safe and informed.

Some information is too critical to be kept behind a log-in screen. Through CampusOptics, EH&S has created public portals for maps that detail the locations of emergency items like blue light phones, AEDs, and sharps containers. Safety Data Sheets of on-campus hazardous materials can be searched using another public portal, powered by TWU’s chemical inventories. These measures ensure safety even in areas with which you may be unfamiliar.

As for areas you know well, all research laboratories, teaching and prep laboratories, art studios, workshops, theaters, and other high-hazard work areas on campus are assigned spaces in CampusOptics. Depending on your role in CampusOptics, signing in (using your TWU credentials with Google Single Sign On) may allow you to see building information, hazardous materials, inspection results, and issues assigned to you or your space.

See something wrong? CampusOptics allows you to report incidents and safety concerns through short forms you can find on our website. Similar forms on our website will allow you to request a waste pick-up from your area, request an ergonomics assessment, and request an indoor air quality assessment. You can also submit a permit request for outdoor grilling and high hazard work, like hot work and confined space entry.
