"Is it safe to use "select max(table1_id) from table1" after the insert?"

Yes it is safe, but ONLY if you use it inside a transaction.(BEGIN/COMMIT).

Subject: [SQL] Last insert id

I have three tables which are related a serial field, table1_id, in on of
the tables. Updating the tables is done through a transaction. My problem
is, once I have insert  a row in the first tables with table1_id, I need for
the other two tables. How can I get this? Is it safe to use "select
max(table1_id) from table1" after the insert?
