Not so easy IMO to do that properly. Use the flock command if your system
provides it.

That said, using a systemd service (resp timer) for interactive (resp
batch/cron) use:

  - gives you that locking for free
  - enforce using the same execution context in both cases (ex: the Unix
    environment, the locale ...)
