Temperature Log Sheets
Proactively maintain correct temperature levels with a mobile app to avoid product recalls and rejects, fines and penalties
What is a Temperature Log?
A temperature log is a documentation of temperatures for food, equipment and medical storage areas to ensure that they run at safe temperature levels. Maintaining proper temperature levels is crucial in food safety and medical care. Failure to maintain proper temperature levels can result in legal disputes, fines and penalties.
In this article you will learn more about: 1) how poor temperature monitoring affects different industries; 2) mobile tool that can help improve temperature monitoring and documentation; and 3) free digital temperature log sheet templates.
Temperature Monitoring By Industry
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.
Maintaining proper temperature levels is crucial in medical care. Incorrect temperature of medical storage areas containing medications or vaccines can result in drug degradation which weakens or compromises drug effects to users. Pharmaceutical products that are not kept within their safe temperature range during shipment can become life threatening and will be recalled.
Transport and Logistics
Unsold perishable goods will be disposed of 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.
Unmaintained room temperature of server rooms can lead to server crash, halting business operations.
Powerful Inspection Tool for Temperature Monitoring
Monitoring and maintaining the ideal temperature is crucial for the operation and success of many industries. iAuditor, the world’s most powerful mobile inspection app, can help inspectors and staff consistently perform temperature monitoring.

Featured Template Log Templates
Refrigerator Temperature Log Template
This straightforward refrigerator temperature log template can help staff accomplish routine temperature monitoring of food items in cold storage. Set to accept the recommended temperature at 40°F or below, any higher value entered using this iAuditor template will automatically prompt to take action and provide details with an optional photo of action taken. This iAuditor template allows:
- Record timestamps of the temperature readings.
- Geotagging for easy reference on location of temperature readings.
- Automatically indicate if temperature readings are no longer within the ideal range.
- Easily share reports via PDF or web link.
- iAuditor reports are secure in cloud storage and accessible on you mobile or desktop.
Fridge Temperature Checklist
A fridge temperature checklist can be used to record and monitor the current temperature of refrigerators and freezers (both walk-ins and reach-in units). Using °F, this digital template will indicate if the temperature entered is out of the safe range. This fridge temperature checklist can be performed daily or weekly. Use iAuditor’s scheduling feature to organize your inspections and never miss another routine temperature check again.
Temperature Monitoring Log
This temperature monitoring log template is a tool used to maintain refrigerators and freezers in the facility. Designated staff can use this to record daily freezer/refrigerator temperature logs and complete it by affixing signatures. Maximize using this template with a bluetooth thermometer and customize this template to set the appropriate temperature level.
Server Room Temperature Log Template
This server room temperature log accepts between 50-82°F and anything out of range will prompt the inspector to immediately take action and record the action done. iAuditor templates with temperature fields can be changed from °F to °C and further edited to fit the needs for any temperature controlled environment.
Cold Store/warehouse Inspection Checklist
This cold store/ warehouse inspection checklist can be used to check for defects to the structure, design, and facilities of cold storage or warehouses. This checklist has 11 sections covering food storage facilities and practices, temperature, pest control, and transport. iAuditor templates are customizable to fit the requirements of your business.
