What gases are toxic gases?

These products are very toxic. The slightest exposure to these products can kill. Preferably, store these toxic gases outdoors in a fenced-in area that has been locked and posted. This area must be covered with the cylinders kept off the ground and away from radiant heat sources. If stored indoors, toxic gas cylinders must be kept in well-ventilated areas. Cylinder temperatures should not exceed 125°F (52°C).

In addition to being toxic, arsine, diborane, and phosphine are also flammable. The storage area for flammable toxic gases should have electrical equipment conforming to Article 500 of the National Electrical Code. Space all ignition sources and combustible materials out of storage areas.
