We hold a bench for longer than a month....

I wouldn't worry yet. Unless you're just sitting around doing nothing.

~ 6 weeks here

P2 - Do you know how long is safe to be on the bench for?

It's all relative to your personal and practice performance. Make sure you're actively pushing for work, doing PD work and be able to document how you spent this bench time.

You should be good for atleast 8 weeks... but yes, should some initiative that you've done some PD work... 1 month is too early to sweat!

Agree with P1 and P3. I'm doing the same; not been staffed for long, but trying to be involved in as many BD activities as possible
