What does bench proof mean?

I saw a recipe for Kaiser rolls and it said to bench proof them. Does anyone know what that means?

:D It means letting rolls rise on a bakers bench which is usually made out of wood.I sure you can proof or rise them on a pan anyway.

Thanks, I kind of figured it was something like that, I just had never seen a term like that before. Anyway, this is the place I saw it mentioned:

I've been trying different recipes and when I saw this it stumped me a little bit, but wanted to make sure it was no big deal.

Thanks again.
