Then use something like sudo access for users who also must be root once in a while. Try:

visudo
Then enable the group wheel to su to root
save

Add the users which need sudo access to the group wheel.

The most actions are logged then in /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog or /var/log/auth.log

Hope this helps
