You can lock tables (or with certain types of tables you can lock rows).  Then any new user will be locked if he/she tries to use a table or row that's already locked.   That's the mechanism you should use rather than looking to run an enquiry to see if any other user is connected.

You may also like to have a look at the commit and rollback commands if you're doing multitable updates using InnoDb tables.
