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.

Information Technology

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.

Convenient mobile inspection app

  • Handy inspection tool available on Android, iPhone, or iPad.
  • Record or take photos of temperature readings.
  • Using a Bluetooth-enabled thermometer, you can digitally capture temperature readings.

Do not miss another routine temperature check

  • iAuditor’s scheduling feature ensures that employees are reminded when temp checks are due.
  • Know if scheduled inspections are missed.

Monitor assigned tasks

  • Should a freezer breakdown, immediately assign action for repair or maintenance and receive status updates.

Paperless record-keeping

  • No more missing paper temperature log sheets that you need to manually re-enter on your computer.
  • Share iAuditor reports that are automatically organized and saved in the cloud – important for providing proof of record-keeping if aiming for any type of certification.
  • Review collected temperature readings anytime anywhere on your mobile or computer.
