This key with the values bench=yes/no is used mostly in combination with other tags (e.g. highway=bus_stop and amenity=shelter) to indicate that the feature in question includes benches. For isolated benches, amenity=bench is the usual method.

Some mappers also use bench=* to specify the "type" of a bench, e.g. bench=stand_up_bench. Consider using the more widely used and better documented bench:type=* instead, e.g. bench:type=stand_up.
