A temperature log is used to record the temperature of food, equipment and storage facilities to ensure readings are within their safe range. Temp log documentation helps ensure employees perform their regular checks, reveals areas most at risk and demonstrates that a business is following proper quality control measures.

This article covers the following 1) the consequences of poor temperature monitoring; 2) mobile tool to replace paper temperature logs; and 3) free digital temperature log sheet templates.

Industries rely on consistent temperature monitoring to keep the integrity of products and maintain the optimal functionality of equipment. Poor temperature monitoring can lead to the following consequences:


- Food that is not properly stored and prepared at the right temperatures can become a food safety risk.

- Food products that are not within the recommended temperature ranges during food manufacturing or delivery are rejected or recalled which can result to losses and, if compounded with other food safety violations, possible business closure.


- Pharmaceutical products that are not kept within their safe temperature range during shipment can become life threatening and will be recalled.

- Vaccines lose potency if not stored following the manufacturer’s recommended temperature.

Transport and Logistics

- Unsold perishable goods will be disposed if they are not stored with the right storage temperature during transit.

- Food and pharmaceutical industries rely on temperature controlled logistics or cold chain to maintain the integrity of their products.

Information Technology

- Unmaintained room temperature of server rooms can lead to server crash, halting business operations.
