If the secondary contain is for immediate use, such as the dropping bottles for an experiment, label the bottles with the name, formula, and concentration of the contents.  I also recommend a pictogram where necessary.

Out of curiosity, for those of you in academia, how are you handling GHS secondary container labeling in teaching lab situations where the average freshman student isn't exactly known for their attention to detail?  We often have a multitude of small dropping bottles with 30 to 50 ml which becomes a labeling nightmare because of lack of space for labels due to the small size of the container.
