Sleeping on duty is not a crime or misbehavior.
As per my suggestion, you should understand why he was sleeping?
What is the reason behind it?
You can not raise a notice for that.
Yes, you can inform him about the same by mail and asked him not to do this again.

It depends on your company policy as laid down and circulated to all employees. If you do not have any work discipline related policy or if this is not mentioned then there is not much you can do except maybe put a general memo to the employee.

You have not furnished more details about :
- the concerned employee - his designation, responsibilities, duty period etc.
- the company - nature of its business
- the Conduct rules in your organization, etc.
"Sleeping while on duty" is, generally, listed as an Act of Misconduct.
Employees reported to have committed a Misconduct are dealt with as per the due process (wherein even the punishments are spelled out) and complying with Principles of Natural Justice.
Hope, it clarifies your doubts.

According to the Industrial law, sleeping while on duty is a misconduct and that would be against the act of discipline. Prior to that the information on which industry you are working is not mentioned. Again as you have stated that you are a foreman, you should be from a construction, Iron & Steel, Rolling Mill, etc kind of industries which would certainly have the industry act on line.
Hence you have to take actions against those who do not oblige to the codes and conducts of a company or organization.
