How do I get a workflow to change item permissions in a separate list?

I have two lists.  List #1 contains 10 meters and we want to track when the meters are moved from one location to another.  When a user changes the location of a meter, it kicks off a workflow to create a new item in List #2 and a workflow from List #2 begins.  


The issue I'm having is if meter #1 from the first list currently has a workflow running on List #2 - then I don't want the user to be able to change the location for that piece of equipment.  How can I solve this issue and keep the end user from editing a list item that has a workflow running on List #2?  Should I do this through Item Permissions in a workflow on List #2?


Any ideas???
