This API can identify pages with dead links from Google Search Console / Google Webmaster Tools.
My suggestion is to automatically create reports for this, so that staff can check these pages.
There should be a maximum / throttle, so that it doesn't generate thousands of reports.
Optimally there would be a separate report queue.
Once the issue is corrected the moderator should be able to mark the dead link as fixed. This can then be automatically signalled to Google.

With the parameter urlDetails.linkedFromUrls[] you can fetch pages where the dead link resides.
After a moderator has checked the page, the method MarkedAsFixed can be used to let Google know the issue has been resolved:
